CA Summer Vision Fast
Aug 2nd, 2021 - Aug 14th, 2021 | Inyo Mountains - Big Pine, California | Betsy Perluss, Scott Eberle | Vision Fast
The modern day vision quest is a border crossing practice, an opportunity to reclaim our true place in the natural world. When one steps across the threshold and into the unknown wilderness, boundaries begin to dissolve and our vision begins to expand. The threshold place is a dreamscape, where we can hear, again, the voices of rock, tree, and wind. Following the ancient pathway of this rite of passage, we step into our true nature and remember our home among the wild. We become who we were born to be.
And so, we ask: Do you hear the movement of the river? Do you hear the singing of your sacred ancestors? Are you being summoned to the Land of Lost Borders?
Program Overview: This ceremony involves several days of preparation, 4 days and nights of fasting alone in a wilderness place, and a few days of incorporation.
