Seventh Quest was founded to provide an experience of profound
personal transformation. Based on the premise that each
of us is perfect in our own right and blessed with distinctive
gifts to share, the Seventh Quest serves as the spark to
our essence and draw forth what lies within us.
At certain points in our life journeys, we
may sense a transition approaching - a pull toward a new
career path, a change in personal relationships, or a fervor
for a more authentic way to live. It might simply be time
to heal wounds that are blocking our growth.
This juncture offers a precious chance to
retreat from our hectic lives and turn inward to gain a
deeper understanding of who we really are...and what we
need to do.
transformational tool is the vision quest, adapted from an ancient rites
of passage ceremony. For millennia, people from many different cultures – Native American, Aborigines, and Basque, to name a few – have left behind
familiar surroundings and withdrawn into nature to gain
greater insight into their lives. In line with this traditional sacred practice, our vision quest is a way of confirming
and celebrating a passage from one phase of life into the
next. We in the modern era can benefit greatly from this ceremony, woven into the context of our contemporary lifestyles. The quest is not necessarily about receiving a mystical
vision, but rather about a new way of seeing and moving
through the world.
Essentially, our vision quest is an empty
framework – a circle drawn in the dirt. The ceremony
is bestowed with meaning when you step into the circle with
authentic intention, bringing with you your values, your
spiritual and cultural heritage, and your life experience.
You are the co-creator of your own journey. The quest draws you to the place where your life and spirit
In order to let go of old patterns and give
birth to a new way of being, participants in the vision
quest spend time alone in the wilderness. This immersion
allows questers to reconnect with their own place
in the cycles and rhythms of nature. Journeying solo into
the wild with a chosen individual intention, you have an
opportunity to address limitations, realize strengths, and
ponder your own mysteries.
Upon returning from this self-guided rites
of passage ceremony, you will be empowered and transformed
by a new vision of yourself – and ready to serve your
community with the gifts of your journey.
“The vision quest helped me get in touch with the deeper me. Throughout life, superficiality can come into play…building walls, or putting on faces as we assume our different roles. This was a wonderful opportunity to rediscover my authentic self, and it’s already shining through in my life.” ~ Greg D., CEO Hebron, KY
