Feeding the Fire: A Vision Quest Reunion Weekend
October 13-15, 2007 (Putney, VT)
Many people leave a vision quest or other “adventure of the Spirit” filled with hope and gratitude. Moved by the experience of being fully alive, and filled with fresh possibility from a profound encounter between human nature and nature, they depart committed to walk their “path with heart,” to re-enter the world they left behind to make real their vision, to create a dream worth living.

But living within a dynamic dance of self and world, mind and spirit, sacred and profane is more difficult “on the other side of the trees.” Having stepped outside the self we know into a more fluid and mysterious reality, it can be sobering to step back in, to encounter a world whose vision is trivial — obsessed with the pursuit of more “stuff” — and whose emotional landscape is stuck at the level of a child.
How can we plant the seeds we bring back in the daily world with its dysfunction and distraction? How can we protect what is important and sacred, nurture it, and make it grow? What gifts do we have to give to our people? We must ask and answer these questions if our vision is to guide us, for it is in daily life the living work of the vision quest awaits us.
It’s a great blessing to feel at home, to find others with whom we feel we belong, we’re seen and heard, what we say and do makes a difference. This weekend — during the peak of foliage season in southern Vermont — is an opportunity to reconnect with the insight, rich experience, and friendship we have shared in a gathering rich in heart and soul as nature displays its brilliant cloak around us..
Each of us has 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. Through council, sacred ritual, and practices that call forth our power and purpose we’ll say “yes!” to life as it is while honoring the calling to heal, share our truth, make a difference, and create real community. Together we’ll renew and reaffirm our commitment to living fully, to tend, nurture, and bring to fruition those seeds that have been planted within us.
