Vision Quest

tipi fb photoVision Quest

There comes a time when you must leave family, friends and work behind and go off alone, looking within to discover your changes in the circle of life. The Vision Quest is the name of this journey. This is a path that has been followed by human beings for thousands of years. You hear it calling to you. These questions are pushing you, “Who am I?”, “What do I have to give?” and “How can I heal my wounds?” How can I bring my vision into my world, the world of work, relationships and ordinary life?

This beautiful weekend is a coming together of souls who are ready for this journey and will focus on intuition, paying attention to feelings rather than thoughts and deciphering the messages coming in from spirit. Also the situation of this quest is in a beautiful tipi garden in the estate of Kimberley Hall. We’ll be camping out under the stars each night in tipi’s surrounded by a beautiful walled garden with 700 year old oaks in the Capability Brown planted grounds of Kimberley Hall in Norfolk.

We will be eating deliciously prepared organic food and juices to keep us light and more transparent for the spiritual work ahead.

During this vision quest you will experience:

~ How to journey to the lower, middle and upper worlds for healing, guidance and discovering inner truths.

~ Quiet time to reflect and connect to spirit in nature.

~ Past life regression, tune into the ancient wisdom of your ancestors and journey to your past to find blocks and new awareness of who you really are.

~ Paying attention to your intuition and the different varieties of perception open to all of us.

Using the elements of Fire, water, earth and air.

Fire: ceremony every evening with dance, drumming and shamanic breath work.

Water: cleansing ceremony in the lake and or swimming pool!

Earth: working with earth Gaia and feeling her messages to us.

Air: Out in the fresh air of the countryside, hearing the messages contained on the breeze.

About Kimberley Hall tipi garden:

Each tipi sleeps 6 people comfortably, complete with faux fur covered airbeds, camp chairs, fire plate and logs. Walks circumnavigate the lake passing 700 year old oaks and at scheduled times the swimming pool will be available within Lady Isabelle’s Garden.

Please bring your own drums and any other musical instruments you might wish to play.

Please enquire for prices and what to bring.
