“Part of the Whidbey Institute’s path is to help people find their own authentic center point, the place in themselves where they are able to be at ease, to be resilient, to be flexible, and to be at peace.” —Joel Shrut

Northwest Soulquest Vision Quest Preparation

April 27 - April 29

Preparation Camping Retreat: April 28–30, 2017

A preparatory experience for the Return Again: Wild Soul Vision Quest, guided by Anne Hayden and Sheila Belanger.

The Wild Soul Vision Quest is for those who have previously enacted a vision quest with Northwest Soulquest or Animas Valley Institute in a Year-long program, or have engaged with a significant number of soulcraft ™programs. In these tumultuous times, the world needs mature individuals willing to embody their authentic soul essence. To re-enact a vision quest in wild lands deepens your relationship with your soul and enlivens the unique gifts that only you can bring to the world.

This journey is a contemporary enactment of the cross-cultural vision quest and includes three days and nights of solitude and fasting.

We quest in canyon lands of Eastern Washington where ponderosa pine, owl and  sagebrush offer wild companionship. The required weekend Preparation Camping Retreat weaves together the community of questers and offers support for your individual preparation (physically, emotionally and spiritually) in the months before the journey.

Registration:  Enrollment is by application.


For information or to apply for the Quest, contact: nwsoulquest@gmail.com or call us at (360) 320-5343.
