Wild Women Weaving the World: A Vision Quest

August 4-12, 2020

Guides: Tracey Forest and Jonah Ruh Roberts


  • Do you feel the groundswell of women rising?
  • Do you desire clear vision to activate your soul path so you can truly create the change you want to see in the world?
  • Are you longing to clear the clutter, blocks and obstacles from your life?
  • Do you want to mine your shadow for gold?
  • Do you pine for more connection to the Earth and the nonhuman ones?
  • Are you praying for an immersion in ceremony, deep council and sisterhood?
  • Are you ready for a Vision Quest created for and led by women?
If you answered yes, then this immersion was designed for you.
 
This powerfully held experience will help you clear away the clutter of conditioning, self doubt and the distraction of daily life to hone in on what moves you the most. It helps you create the intersect where your skills and passions overlap with the need you see in the world. This immersion is about getting you to ground zero so you can make some deep changes in your life and begin to walk your soul path with clarity, clear direction engagement and inspiration.
 
The three-day solo vision quest is the centerpiece of this eight-day immersion.
 
The first few days of the program will be spent in preparation for the quest. In sacred space, you will be guided to hone your intentions, identify obstacles and fears holding you back from walking your truth and bring forth your passion- your gold.
 
The three-day vision fast will be your time out on the land to free your wild mind and open your whole being so you can call in guidance, inspiration and clarity. You will cross the threshold into the mystery and magic of your depths, and be held and mirrored by the living earth, where you will encounter your soul in all its beauty.
 
The last two days will be for deep council, integration, ceremony and stepping forth into your brightness– resourced, clear, inspired and empowered in your work.

I highly recommend this immersion experience into deepening your understanding of soul and spirit within and without. It will inform your life in ways both subtle and obvious and add to the ever-widening pool of consciousness that has the power to bring healing on both a personal and a universal level. – Cynthia Hansen, 2018 participant

 
This gathering is about how we can move beyond conversation, valuable as it is, and begin the process of meaningful structural shift in our culture and in our own lives by bringing forth our unique contributions and practicing communication from our authentic selves rather than the masks of societal imprinting.
 
Your guides are passionate women who have devoted themselves to the spirit path for over 25 years. They weave the magic of ceremony, shamanic teachings, deep council, sweat lodge and pure, unapologetic love for the divine feminine, Earth and the non-human ones. They weave powerful teachings from Core Shamanism, Sacred Earth Medicine, Animas Valley Institute Soulcrafting and Wild Mind Training, Trauma Resolution, Yoga, Plant medicine, channeling songs, direct experience working between worlds and facilitating transformative experiences for all ages and all genders. The love, strength, tenderness, passion, focus and care you will receive allows you to leave the shallows and enter the depths of your soul and the world behind the veil.


This immersion is held in a deeply resonant, loved, protected cove in the forests of Southwestern Vermont where vision quests, shamanic trainings, warrior and goddess camps have been held for decades. The trees, the stones, and earth know our pain, witness our breakthroughs and reflect for us what we need to hear.

 
Six days for women ready to take it to the next level:
  • Three-day Vision Quest
  • Ceremony
  • Sweat lodge
  • Shadow Work
  • Deep Council
  • Immersion into the Soulscape
  • Shamanic Journey
  • Earth Yoga and Ecstatic Movement
  • Tools for integration and actualization of the Vision

 
The time is now, Sacred One, the Earth, her animals, forests and indigenous ones need us to step into our power and create the change we want to see in the world.
We need shamans, way keepers, activists and singers in every village re-enchanting the world with songs, art, and medicine. We need the bridge builders to connect the lovers of the Earth with those in power. We need to know our words and lift our voices. We need authenticity and sovereignty as the times of subservience have cost us too much. Join the groundswell of women. Empower the groundswell of women. Amplify the groundswell of wild women as together we weave a new order of care, sustainability, and consciousness into the world. We need you!

Tracey & Jonah have a very special gift to provide safe nurturing and vulnerable spaces for women to connect more deeply to their authentic beings. They are devoted to their own growth which radiates from their aura’s. If I wasn’t traveling to Thailand I would do another journey with these amazing women. – Nina L, 2018 participant

Tracey Forest “Key Turner”

is passionate about helping others step through the doorway into the mystical and the mythical, the sacred and the sublime, the earthy and the erotic, the dark depths and high heights. She is a fearless and compassionate facilitator who has “been to the mountain” and descended into the abyss to lament for the earth, to celebrate the beauty and pain and who knows the rich gifts that lie in the dark to be mined. She stands in the portal, holding a lantern, singing ancient songs, dangling a key, inviting you to step through into the vast landscape of your Soul.

A shamanic healer and teacher, yoga teacher and singer with 25 years experience guiding others, Tracey is currently in the Wild Mind Training Program with the Animas Valley Institute (animas.org) cultivating more tools to assist in the Wholing and Healing of this broken, beautiful world.


Jonah Ruh Roberts

has been devoted to her spirit path for 25 years and is in love with the journey of life with all its rich magical forests, hard hauls through the desert, lofty views of inspiration and thorny thickets of challenging times. She is passionate about cultivating soul strength and relationship with intuition and the spirit realm. As well as being part of a greater tribe of strong women, she has led women’s circles for a number of years and sees the power and necessity of women coming together in ceremony and soul work to provide safe places to cultivate heartspace to allow our authenticity to emerge. She sees that it is women and the youth who are and will be the leading edge of cultural change. And so she is devoted to honoring soul voice, removing old stories and obstacles, connecting deeply with spiritual allies and each other to co-create a vision of true inter-relation with all beings and bring this vision through into ordinary reality. Jonah is also an herbalist and cultivator of medicinal plants, learn more about her at, https://www.unitymountainherbs.com/about

 


BE INFINITESIMAL…

Be infinitesimal under that sky, a creature
even the sailing hawk misses, a wraith
among the rocks where the mist parts slowly.

Recall the way mere mortals are overwhelmed
by circumstance, how great reputations
dissolve with infirmity and how you,
in particular, stand a hairsbreadth from losing
everyone you hold dear.

Then, look back down the path to the north,
the way you came, as if seeing
your entire past and then south
over the hazy blue coast as if present
to a broad future.

Recall the way you are all possibilities
you can see and how you live best
as an appreciator of horizons
whether you reach them or not.

Admit that once you have got up
from your chair and opened the door,
once you have walked out into the clean air
toward that edge and taken the path up high
beyond the ordinary you have become
the privileged and the pilgrim,
the one who will tell the story
and the one, coming back
from the mountain, who helped to make it.
