11 Days Retreat & Ceremonies
- Retreat Eco Center Los Hibrones
- Granadilla de Abona, Santa Cruz de Tenerife, Spain
- Jun 20 - 30, 2019 (11 days)
A vision quest is a rite of passage in some Native American cultures. Among Native American cultures who have this type of rite, it usually consists of a series of ceremonies as sweat lodge…etc. led by Elders or shaman. The process includes a complete fast for four days and nights, alone at a sacred site in nature which is chosen by the Elder for this purpose. Some communities have used the same sites for many generations.
During this time, the young person prays and cries out to the spirits that they may have a vision, one that will help them find their purpose in life, their role in the community, and how they may best serve the People. Dreams or visions may involve natural symbolism – such as animals or forces of nature – that require interpretation by the Guide.
Fasting & Retreat in loneliness symbolism: The Indians believe that the person who fasts and stays awake and concentrates on their quest until their mind becomes “comatose.” is when then that its Weyekin is revealed itself.
Nowadays it is a rite celebrated around the world and done by thousands of people, men and women yearly guided by one leader.

Think seriously about whether you are ready to do this before you commit. Indecision and anxiety — especially as the quest dates approach — are a common experience, and the choice to act from our purposes and intentions rather than our fears is an important and empowering decision. Should unavoidable circumstances make your participation impossible, your payment — if you notify us at least a month prior to your scheduled starting date — may be applied toward another program taking place in next year of your registration.
The experience of a vision quest is profound, and it has the potential to be a pivotal point in major life transitions. We highly recommend declaring your intention early to allow for thorough preparation. Early enrollment facilitates scheduling since courses often fill up; makes travel arrangements simpler and more economical, and it prevents any unnecessary cancellation of programs.
Other programs may also be scheduled to meet the needs for relaxation from a weekend to extended stays excursions or pilgrimages into nature, and they can be focused around various purposes. Costs and logistics will be worked out after finishing the vision quest.
We were said thousands of years ago that it would come a time when we should re join again. But due to so many ages living in the darkness, we have forgotten our real purpose in this planet. The time to awaken to that knowledge is there waiting and the ways to have access to that is through certain practices, finding our routes, our origins, our pagan
