Circles of Air and Stone offers classes, trainings, and workshops at different locations throughout the year. These programs are intensive, offering participants a deep encounter with nature, both inner and outer, and the often shifting boundary between the two. They are appropriate for men and women wanting to gain insight, access deeper levels of awareness, or move forward on their spiritual path; or for anyone facing change or searching for tools and skills to help themselves or others. Further information is available on each program mentioned below. Please inquire.
The cost of a vision quest is $1295 — $1495 if enrolling less than a month before the start of program. The fee for the all-apprentice training quest is $1200. A non-refundable deposit of $400 holds your space. If you are unable to attend a program for which you’ve registered, your deposit may be applied to another program within a year if notice is given a month in advance.
Each of us has a calling, a unique voice, a song we must sing, a vision we must enact. Each of us has the capacity to live a life of joy, to contribute to our people and make the world a better place. But most people in modern times do not realize this potential within them. For millennia people have entered the wilderness to encounter the spirit and seek their direction, purpose, or medicine.
These programs take place in the mountains of Vermont, among the mesas, mountains, and canyons of New Mexico, in the twisted red-rock labyrinths of southeast Utah, and in the vast desert of Death Valley, CA. They include a thorough preparation, a 4-day solo fast, and teachings to translate your vision into life.
