We will be fasting for 4 days and nights on water while being in solitude, exposed to the elements of nature.
We fast to awaken the body’s self-healing systems, and to realign with our essence and the natural world around. To give thanks and celebrate life!
It’s a mesmerizing experience to feel so deeply connected as you will when fasting outside embraced by the wild nature!
I will guide you with a lot of personal care on this powerful and intimate journey to your subconscious. Making sure you are well prepared and feel supported on a physical, mental and emotional level so you can fully surrender to the experience and transformational proces.
Retreating alone in nature provides a powerful opportunity to step back and reflect on your life, your patterns, beliefs and the relationships that form them. Doing this while fasting on water will help calm your nervous system and clear your mind. To be more centered and your dreams more vivid.
What is Your wild nature, Your essence, Your authentic self and true voice? What is your personal power when you are liberated from social and cultural conditioning, emotional trauma and false beliefs? No one else but you can tell you this, you yourself will have to find out through experience!
This is the power of the Vision Quest, it is a direct revelation. You will deeply feel that you are exactly where you need to be, and realize that you are enough just as you are! Allowing you to embody the gifts and wisdom you received and integrate them into your daily life.
The Vision Quest is a transformational process which will start the moment you decide to go. And will continue to infuse your life long after breaking the fast. Many people who came on a Vision Quest with us say, even years later, that it’s one of the most beautiful experiences and memories of their lives!
It is a very sacred journey that will give you what you need to become more intimate and authentic with yourself. Allowing you to face deeply rooted patterns and belief with honesty and compassion so you can integrate and transform them. Showing you what true freedom feels like.
To make long lasting change possible it is important to honor your process and give it time. There are no quick fixes on the healing path! Therefore we put a lot of emphasis on proper preparation and integration.
To prepare your system for the Vision Quest and regenerate your body and nervous system on a deep cellular level we emphasize on nutrition within the program.
There’s a big connection between your brain and your gut. The main role is to control digestion; breaking down food, extracting nutrients, absorbing those nutrients and eliminating waste. However, there are also tons of neurons in your intestines, producing and using 95% of the serotonin (happiness and dream hormone) in the body. And it plays a crucial role in developing our limbic brain, which processes our emotions.
Consequently, the health of your digestive system dictates the functioning of your brain and how you perceive your reality! When you regenerate the limbic brain you prevent disease and the effects of aging, helping you to feel and look healthy and youthful. But more importantly, it helps you to create healthy mental and emotional patterns, allowing you to establish a healthy relationship with yourself, others and the world around you.
