Day Quest- April 18th
April 18, 2015 @ 9:00 am - 5:30 pm$150
On this particular DayQuest we explore a teaching called “The Four Shields,” taught to us by Steven Foster and Meredith Little, authors of The Book of the Vision Quest and The Four Shields: The Initiatory Seasons of Human Nature. We have made the Four Shields a cornerstone of our programs because it is one of the few systems of understanding people and the world that is thoroughly connected to Nature and which sees all parts of us as “natural.” In this system, no part of human behavior or psychology is judged, excluded or seen as pathological. It is an elegant, intuitive map of human nature that helps people be more self-accepting and self-loving—good medicine for any of us.
In addition to the Four Shields, we will lead you in other ceremonies and practices that will help you step away from your daily distractions and habits, freeing you to turn to Nature with the fears, hopes and needs of your life. Your pace will slow and you’ll reconnect with Nature and with what truly matters to you. Some participants come with the intention of exploring particular life issues or marking a particular life transition. Others come to get back in touch with deeper values and needs, or simply to “get away”.
