Connection with self, nature and others are three of our deepest longings. Yet, the challenges and busyness of everyday life can leave us feeling rushed and disconnected. 

Stepping away from distractions and long-held patterns allows us to explore the deep connections that help nurture, heal and inspire us. Witnessing nature awakens body, mind and spirit, and offers a profound experience of healing. This healing becomes a transformational experience--a return to our natural rhythm and our authentic self.

Every Vision Quest is an act of courage and recommitment to a life-affirming path. This weekend retreat offers a unique opportunity to spend 2 nights on the land, experiencing a centuries-old ritual of self discovery and renewal.

"Participating in a Vision Quest re-connects us to our essence, to our rhythm, and to nature itself. Many cultures include this practice for health, the balancing of mental, emotional, physical, and spiritual quadrants, and renewal of connection to self, other, and collective."   -- Nancy Feehan

Nancy Feehan is a Marriage and Family Therapist, Adjunct Faculty Professor in the Counseling Psychology Department at USF, workshop leader, and a consultant trained in cross-cultural healing and wisdom.  Nancy was an assistant to Dr. Angeles Arrien in the Four Fold Way and was the Vision Quest Manager for 16 years.  She has lived in a rural community on the Sonoma Coast for 32 years and brings a deep connection to nature and the land to her work.
