Vision Quest Croatia
15. - 22. August 2024
Experience the profound and ancient spiritual ritual of the Vision Quest amidst the pristine natural beauty of Croatia, enveloped by the majestic flow of the Mreznica River. Join us from August 15th to 22nd, 2024, as we embark on a transformative journey of self-discovery and connection.
The Vision Quest, revered and practiced by diverse cultures throughout history, offers a sacred passage of fasting and surrendering to nature, a journey to the very essence of life itself. Guided by experienced masters, you will forge a profound connection with the sacred plant spirits, delving into spiritual growth and the expansion of consciousness.
Within this delicate phase, you may encounter your protective spirits or even commune with the Creator. These encounters have the potential to catalyze profound life transformations, awakening your innate, highest potentials and unveiling unique abilities that reside within you. Every vision seeker undergoes a deeply individual experience, a tapestry of unity woven from our beautifully diverse souls.
Commencing with a purifying sweat lodge ceremony, the Vision Quest prepares you for the odyssey that lies ahead. Each vision seeker is then positioned in their designated natural space, where they will spend four days and four nights in silent meditation and fasting. Amidst this sacred solitude, an opportunity emerges to uncover a profound "Vision" that bridges the realms of the human and the spiritual, uniting your existence in a deeply meaningful way.
Crucial to the fabric of the group are the supporters, individuals who dedicate themselves to service, offering prayers, songs, and nourishment to the vision seekers. Their bond with their fellow seekers is unbreakable, nurtured around a central fire that interconnects them all. This fire allows love, strength, and prayers to flow freely, encompassing those on their transformative quest.
What makes this Vision Quest in Croatia even more extraordinary is its embrace of family. Here, the quest isn't solely for the individual; it's a tapestry woven by generations. Children aren't only welcome but cherished participants in this sacred event. They embody the hope of tomorrow, and their presence adds an element of purity and wonder to the proceedings.
For the children, the Vision Quest offers a unique opportunity to connect with the natural world, to learn from the shamans, and to witness the transformative power of spirituality. It's a place where the wisdom of the elders is passed down, and the bonds of family are strengthened by the shared experience of the quest.
By participating in the Vision Quest, you embark on a journey of self-renewal, forging connections with ancient wisdom, your inner essence, and the natural world. Immerse yourself in the timeless traditions of the Vision Quest and the Mreznica River's embrace. Unearth the layers of your being, transcend your limitations, and embrace the potential for profound transformation.
Join us as we embark on this sacred journey, diving into the heart of nature, the heart of the self, and the heart of spirituality.
Harmony Between Roles
The harmony between the seekers and the supporters creates a sacred space for transformation. It is a symbiotic relationship where the silence of nature and the spiritual support in the camp meld together. The vision quest becomes a collective experience of growth, where each contributes uniquely to elevate collective consciousness.
In this symbiosis of seekers and supporters, the magic of the vision quest is revealed. Whether in the wilderness or at the camp, each plays an indispensable role in this spiritual ballet of self-discovery. Thus, the vision quest becomes not only an individual journey but also a powerful communal ritual celebrating the essence of humanity.
The choice is yours
Whether you're drawn to support the camp or dive into the forest for a fasting adventure, the choice is yours. Join us alone, with your family, or alongside fellow seekers to discover the special sense of community that awaits.
Feel the warmth of connection as you participate in the role of a supporter, or choose the tranquility of the forest for a solo fasting experience. We extend a warm welcome to all individuals and families, including children. Embrace the freedom to shape your own path within this sacred space.
Come, be a part of this transformative journey where community and nature intertwine, creating memories that will last a lifetime.
Our ancestral heritage of Vision Quests enables us to rediscover ourselves in the boundless cosmos and remember our purpose on Earth. It is a time for deep introspection, embracing the profound significance of life.
