Vision Quest Shamanic Retreat 7/31-8/2/20

Sign Up to begin the journey, July 31 – August 2, 2020

We have social distancing and cleanliness in this retreat. We will provide adequate spacing for sleeping inside the lodge. You may also bring a tent and camp outside with hot and cold running water shower and flush toilet.

Since we have been through tremendous challenges this year, I have revisioned the Vision Quest to be a gentle deep journey enjoying more time in nature and experiencing more Shamanic tools and practices to support reconnecting to all of nature and life. We will work in the Medicine Wheel and create a powerful sacred space for ourselves all weekend in new ways to take home with you to live in your home and new life that unfolds from here.

Are you ready for a deep connection to you, your life purpose, and your direction? Are you moving through a significant change this year? Come for a great weekend of ceremony, journeys, transformation, and rebirth, with Shaman Janet StraightArrow. 

A Vision Quest is an opportunity to be in a sacred space alone in nature for some time to hear your heart speak and receive the fullness of who you are and open up to the next stage of your life path. It is a gift that is magical, deep, and transformative. You have a guide, Janet StraightArrow, who is close by when you are alone and yet you are far enough away to have privacy and a feeling of oneness with you. Limited to 12 participants.

A Vision Quest is a rite of passage taken by various traditions taken as you are moving through a period of change, a more profound spiritual awakening, or any shift point, or loss in your life. This event allows for months or weeks of preparation and process as we move towards the pinnacle weekend, where we gather at the retreat center for the Ceremonial weekend.

This retreat is a ceremony from the moment of entering the sacred space until leaving for home. We begin in our Shamanic circle on Friday. Saturday, we journey for support and guidance and then physically search out each person’s sacred vision quest spot that calls to us. There is sufficient alone time to reflect and receive as well as group time to go deeper and share. Our journeys and practices take participants into a deep clear space inside to move into the Sunday Morning quest.

Janet added regular email support from sign-up to the week of the quest and after to assist participants in preparation for the death and rebirth of the ego and awaken more of the true self of the quest weekend and integrate afterward. We release who we have been that does not serve us and are born anew into the truth of who we are as we receive clarity and messages in love and gratitude. It is a gentle, loving process, and Janet is an unconditionally loving support with healthy boundaries and wisdom.

Janet StraightArrow discovered her Shamanic calling in 1992, at the age of forty, as a single mom and top Realtor who had been studying spirituality and healing for twenty-five years before this discovery and living it. She began teaching immediately from memory and continuously awakening higher wisdom and sacred knowledge. She found she carried many lineages from around the world and pursued studies to bring Ancient wisdom together for our modern world today.

Janet’ experience and studies include: Native American, Tibetan, Celtic, Toltec, African, Huichol, and Siberian Shamans, and Shamanic practitioners Michael Harner, Sandra Ingerman, and others at the foundation for Shamanic Studies, and renowned spiritual healing masters from Yoga, Sufism, Zen, Buddhism, Hinduism, Christianity, Judaism, and other traditions around the world and found the unity and unique perspectives and gifts that fill in the missing pieces to make us whole again.

The Mitote is on the Summer Solstice in Morristown, NJ. We are adding new Shamanic work in the Medicine Wheel, and on the land on this retreat.
