Jan Garrett & JD Martin Workshop: Heart of the Vision Quest
Saturday, August 3rd
10:00 am – 1:00 pm
Unity of Boulder
Jan and JD have distilled their long-time experience with wilderness rites of passage and soul visioning into this potent format that can happen in any setting, indoors or out. It’s all about whole-heartedness…soul retrieval through centering, mirroring, and tuning into divine aliveness and guidance as reflected in, and embodied by, the natural world. The insights and deep wisdom of nature are then brought back as a gift to renew and strengthen the community.
The Vision Quest experience is universal, and common to indigenous people all over the world. From time to time every individual needs to walk into the wisdom of the wilderness in order to mark a powerful personal passage, cry for a vision, and feed the soul.
Jan & JD offer their music and their personal insights as a way to anchor and broaden the traditional Vision Quest.
ABOUT THE WORKSHOP:
Participants will get a solid introduction to, and personal taste of, the essential vision quest experience without having to camp, fast, and lug a 50-lb backpack through the woods or desert for 12 days. (Jan & JD say this with much love and respect.) Of course, nothing can replace the deep transformation of the traditional quest, so If you have the time and inclination, please check out Animas Valley Institute and School of Lost Borders.
In this 3-hour group workshop, Jan & JD offer a powerful taste of the vision quest experience. Even in this short amount of time, the beginnings of much deep and soulful evolution can happen when we create a welcoming and creative shamanic space.
Nature is a deep and potent teacher and ally. In a beautiful outdoor setting we will do talking staff council, learning to speak and listen from the heart to each other’s deepest longings and intentions. We tune ourselves to the universal energy and find messages mirrored everywhere. Refreshed by the deep sanity of nature and our own wild hearts, we activate our original Divine blueprint, and show up like loving warriors, willing to bring our unique gifts & talents into the world again, and make a difference.
