VISION QUEST

 Vision Quest

What are you willing to give up in order to have everything change?

 

May – September

Sacred Ground International, Montana

 

The blessings of the Mountain are subtle yet powerful, loving yet demanding, peaceful yet may change your reality forever. The Mountain is a very sacred place that moves to the Ancient Wisdom of Oneness and All things, calling forth the conscious knowing of who we are, why we are here and the peace and joy of being welcome and highly purposeful.”

 

We are living in powerful times of metamorphosis. Perceived crisis and breakdown are catalysts for reconnection and unity. Compassion builds bridges, empathy and strengthens our bond to all our relationships. So many of us are being called to remember, reconnect and restore our true sense of purpose, so that we can be of service to ourselves, to humanity and to our more than human communities in these times of radical change.

In order to truly remember, we are called to remove ourselves for a time from the bonds of our old life and stories. We are asked to give up the old and outdated parts of ourselves and our lives in order to create space for new experiences and opportunities to flourish.

In order to truly reconnect to our innate human gifts to honour and cherish life, we are invited to embark into the wild lands of earth once more and apprentice ourselves to the voice of nature. If we are called, we can step into a modern initiation – one where we seek our unique vision and story in the weft and weave of the world.

NATURE NURTURES, wakes us up, and calms us down. We gasp and marvel at its beauty and its power to destroy. We are Nature, with absolute dominion and power to create. When in Nature we refresh and renew – it is the perfect setting to truly ‘rest’ and re-member who we are. The question is ,”Are you ready to accept your true identity and walk it into your life?”. Now is the time to step up into the leader you were born to be.

 

Many are called, few are chosen by the land

 

For those that are ready, an exclusive group of three unique and gifted Vision Walkers are waiting.

Brooke Medicine Eagle, Earth Keeper, wisdom teacher and visionary, Tanah Whitemore, Director and Founder of Sacred Ground International and Genevieve Boast, Founder of Beyond Human Stories will walk with you for a quest into the heart of our human interconnectedness and your unique purpose and story on earth. You will be immersed in evolutionary leadership, wisdom teachings, new paradigm science and experiential indigenous practices, whilst spending time on the land in Sacred Ground, Montana.

 

The Practice

In traditional cultures, the practice of Vision Questing was undertaken in stages and layers. Often people will commit to a four-part journey, with the duration, depth and dedication increasing at each successive stage. This allows for transformation to take place gently and subtly, aligned to the specific pace and trajectory needed by each person questing.

A person is prepared for each journey physically, emotionally, mentally and spiritually by their guides although the quest itself is an individual and solo experience. Time and space are given afterwards to allow the quester to assimilate and process their experiences, embodying them in a way that can be taken back into their everyday world for the benefit of them and their wider community.

People come to a vision quest when they are ready to let go of everything that holds them back from living their greatest story and legacy in the world. In order to fully surrender to and benefit from the powerful process, they need to be ready to let go. To die and be reborn in the truest sense of who they are here to be.

The journey requires humility as well as a deep respect for all of life.

If you embark on this quest, you will be forever changed.

You will become who you came here to be.

Why Sacred Ground International

Sacred Ground International, (a charitable foundation) is headquartered on 3500 acres at the base of the Pryor Mountains located on the Crow Indian Reservation near Pryor, Montana.  A model of sustainable ranching that utilizes principles of Conservation, Preservation and Restoration of both cultural and natural resources.  It is home to a Buffalo Preserve, Paint Mustangs, wildlife, pure natural springs and wilderness landscapes.

It is an ancient land and landscape. A place where millions of buffalo roamed, tribes lived their ceremonies, quested, danced and lived in communion and collaboration with Nature. They are still here. The geology is literally crystalline, the springs and water flow pure, the energy and vibration is extremely high. It is beautiful, diverse and has a voice. It is where ‘we’ come to quest and renew. When given a choice, the best will always do and that is what we have chosen for you.

Today, the ranch is held and managed by Tanah who spent most of her childhood on the ranch, plus many adult years learning and deepening into the richness of this remarkable land. “ This Mountain is a very powerful place.  Many have come here from all over the world to drink the Medicine Water, lay under the sun and stars and awake the ‘natural’ rhythm of remembrance, knowing and healing.  The geology is ancient, crystalline and home to the seen and unseen.  Mystical, yes, and yet profoundly grounding. Here, waiting for you!”
