Soon we will be meeting for your sacred medicine ceremony where we will be learning and exploring with nature’s great plant teachers and healers. Whether you have experienced these visionary medicines before or not this ceremony or Vision Quest could potentially be a life changing experience. The purpose of this page is to fully prepare you for your hero's journey.
There are two dimension to our process and the journey that you need to understand: one is the the 'container' and the unique way which we will be holding space, the second is the powerful plant medicine teachers which we will be working with. Often the case with other facilitators/shamans and their process is that their primary focus is on the medicine and the cultural traditions that comes with them, our focus is primarily on the sacred container we build and the unique way we hold space. We believe that the safer and well held the container is the deeper the work will be regardless of which medicine teachers we invite in. In fact we have shown that even without plant medicines, sometimes only with breathwork, we are able to facilitate life changing transformations and healing work simply through working process in a powerful container. It all about creating a profoundly open, secure and honest space that is distinctly different from the way we operate in the 'normal world' a space we where we can truly delve deep and explore the dimensions of your inner being, drop into our vulnerability and find our deepest expression and truth.
Holding Space is our core sacred practice and craft in this work, it is how we create a unique loving environment free of dogma or judgements, a guided loving space your you to feel safe to delve deep to explore the dimensions of your inner being. This can be an exciting but also a scary proposition for anyone who has not really looked within themselves before: what will you find, what will you see or feel and what will arise?
As facilitators while we will be holding this loving space for each one of you and your process, you will also be learning to hold this space for each others as participants. While we may start the journey as strangers by the end of the journey we will feel like one tribe. In order for us to collectively build a strong container to there are agreements that we will ask each of you to affirm and keep for the period of the ceremony or quest. These agreements have been designed to engender context of shared sacredness and trust.. As you read each agreement, it will makes their own sense s to why they are there.
Ceremony Space Agreements
Agreement 1. All technology must be turned off. As you arrive at the quest or ceremony we will ask that you switch off your cell phone and any other communication or alerting device. If you are on call or need to be be a on stand-by for news, one of the facilitators will sort that out on your behalf.
Agreement 2 Mind your own process. You have come to this ceremony or quest to deal with and explore you and your life.
