Desert Vision Quest
NOVEMBER 17-19, 2023
A Vision Quest is a time-out, usually in deep nature, where the outer, everyday life is temporarily left behind, where one fasts from food and words, and the subtle becomes loud and evident.

This 3-day quest will draw on the study of Nature Mysticism and how to stand with one foot in the ordinary world, and one foot in the non-ordinary world, for the sake of healing – ourself, our community and our relationship to the Earth. Thanks to this silent, expansive nature setting, we are supported in honoring the Earth as a living being, and we are validated and enhanced in our communication and interconnectivity with it, in an intentional and conscious way. This retreat offers a time-out for quiet communion, and also provides support in listening to our own unique role in this interdependent ecosystem that we are so intimately part of.
This retreat holds a psycho-spiritual approach, influenced by the Nature Wisdom Traditions, and contemporary restorative yoga practices. These will be incorporated into the intensive as both expansion tools, and a means of grounded integration, for all that will be accessed over the 2 nights and 3 days, and upon one's return.CONTACT CYNTHA FOR INFO
For the last 24 years, I have led shamanic vision quests in the UAE and Omani deserts to support a greater connection to self and the wondrous ecosystem we are intimately part of. The immersion that a quest is, provides an opportunity to reset one's entire being, detox physically, emotionally, mentally and spiritually, and emerge with greater connection and commitment to oneself and our Mother Earth.
I’m fundamentally a teacher, influenced by a mind-body-spirit approach. From the clients I coach, to the courses I teach, and the retreats I lead, my intention is to inspire both compassion and rigor so to be more whole and true in our life purpose, and our relationships to others, ourself and our planet. I bring in Emotional Bodywork, Creative Responsive Therapy™, yoga and other somatic practices as needed.LEARN MORE
