Preparation Retreat for Wild Soul Quest

April 26 - April 28

Variable rate

The Wild Soul Quest is for those who have engaged in a significant amount of life healing processes, have a deep inclination toward soul discovery, want to offer their soul gift in service to the world in these challenging times, and are now ready to partner with the wildness of their own nature, in the wildest of natural landscapes, to activate their soul blueprint.

In these tumultuous times, the world needs mature individuals willing to embody their authentic soul essence. To enact a Soul Quest in wild lands deepens your relationship with your true nature, reveals your soul niche, and activates 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 honor and respect the traditions of indigenous cultures, and do not appropriate their ceremonies.

We quest in canyon lands of Eastern Washington where ponderosa pine, owl, sagebrush , and other wild beings offer fierce mentorship.   The weekend Preparation Camping Retreat, held on South Whidbey Island, weaves together the community of questers and offers support for your individual preparation (physically, emotionally and spiritually) in the months before the journey.

This weekend of preparation, guided by Anne Hayden and Sheila Belanger, takes place in Legacy Forest at the Whidbey Institute.
