Smoky Mountain
Vision Quest Adventure

In gratitude for our many gifts & freedoms,
we offer a prayer of thanks to our Earth Mother
and our Heavenly Father
and seek direct guidance & insight.

Together we will trek to a Sacred Site*,
build a sacred fire,
offer up sweetgrass & sage,
make a food offering to all our relations,
perform our sacred pipe ceremony,
create sacred music,
dance around the Sacred Fire,
and lift up our voices and our prayers.

We will guide you in creating Sacred Music:
drumming, dancing, chanting & toning, 
and focusing your Spiritual Energy.

Local healers, teachers, and ministers
will be available as needed
to facilitate your spiritual journey.

Your goal will be
to dissolve blocks to your spiritual growth,
heal old wounds that lie at the core of your Being,
and receive the Gift of Direct Insight.

A simple Crafts project, sharing diary readings or poetry, a walk or bike ride around the neighborhood, a group meditation, some Internet Web Surfing, or anything else you desire that is grounding would be acceptable.

Day Four
Your Deepening Sessions are scheduled for today. You will begin a Purification Fast today – we will supply you with fluids, vitamins, herbal teas, etc. to help you cleanse the toxins that have built up in your body. Also, fasting helps to focus the mind and awaken the Spirit. You will spend some quality time in Deep Meditation with us. This will prepare you for your Vision Quest Wilderness Trek.

Day Five
We will take you to your Vision Quest Sacred Site. There we will perform our Vision Quest Ceremony with you and sit vigil with you until your Vision comes. The ceremony involves creating Sacred Music, Dancing, Toning, Praying and Meditating. If necessary we will stay up all night with you, keeping you awake until the Deep Seeing comes upon you.

Day Six
You will break your fast today and receive special treatment to begin to revitalize your body and rest from the ordeal of the previous evening. You will be able to discuss your vision with us and ponder its meaning and determine how it might affect the course of your life. You are invited to write a letter to your Future Self, which we will mail to you at a designated date sometime in the future. We will have some downtime in the evening for whatever you desire.

Day Seven
This will be your Closing Circle Day. You will be able to spend a little more time with us to talk about whatever you wish. Perhaps you would like to go on one more outdoor adventure, or play music, or receive another treatment, or whatever. Here at Maggie's Place you are being honored for all that you are and all that you can become – you have the right to choose what you want to do next. We will encourage you to keep in touch and let us know how you are doing in the future. Great Spirit has led us here to serve all those who are truly seeking Peace, Happiness and Wisdom – therefore, we are here to SERVE YOU! May you take the messages that you received during your Vision Quest and use them to continue your Spiritual Evolution, attain Self-Realization, and Serve the Great Plan. That is the true purpose and meaning of Human Life.
May God go with you and bring you Peace & Joy.

Love,
Maggie & Alan
