"May all the spirits bless you, for the way you showed me a way through and all you taught me. Such a great gift I carry in my heart, every day. I owe you a new life." - excerpt from a letter we received a year after a vision quest
We discovered this enchanted and secluded valley in Devon last year and feel so fortunate to be able to run our wilderness vigil with this land. Immersed in ancient oak woodland carpeted with bluebells, open moorland, slow steady granite boulders and rivers (with beautiful wild swimming spots) this valley is so alive to itself. It is the perfect hidden gem for coming home to our wild souls and true nature.
Throughout time and across cultures people have gone into the natural world to mark and celebrate significant life transitions. Vision quests are modern day rites of passage that help navigate the complexity of these times; time away from the everyday, making space and to connect with deeper purpose and wisdom to carry through life.
At the heart of our time together lies a four day solitary immersion into nature, with minimal or no food - this is often a profound, deeply nourishing and transformative experience for people.
One of the best ways to understand what a vision quest is - is to listen to people who have made them.
