An 11-day Backpacking & Vision Quest
Come backpack in the beautiful mountains of north Georgia and climb to the summit of your vision Peak, in preparation for your 48-hour Solo Fast experience. After your Solo, you will rejoin your group and spend a day of reflection and recuperation at basecamp. Three more days on the trail back down the mountain will provide you with many opportunities to understand and integrate what you received on your vision fast. A final welcome back ceremony from the journey includes a community of council, elders, and fellow seekers that will send you forward into your life with a firm anchor point. This community and council gives you the skills and tools to carry what you have learned and to grow into throughout the rest of your life.

The Adult Mountain Quest is a backpacking trip which includes a Vision Quest. Participants will carry everything they need for the 11-day journey on their backs up into the mountains. This Quest emphasizes both the trials of the terrain, and also the trials of working together and relying on each other in the expedition setting. Some questers will thrive in a setting of sharing in council, and others will find enlivenment by dancing with the landscape on the trail.
The Adult Wilderness Quest & The Adult Mountain Quest are not part of a Wilderness Therapy program, and neither of these two programs are intended to provide therapeutic support or counseling for those in need of psychological help. Our guides are extensively skilled in the art of Initiation and soul exploration with Rites of Passage work. As well as in the processes of Life Coaching, Mentoring, and Transformational Wilderness Guiding. Even though we have experience in Eco-Therapy applications we do not call ourselves therapist by any means.
Even those who may have formal training as therapists or mental health providers are not hired to engage in that practice out on the trail. Individuals struggling with emotional or psychological dynamics may find that a trip like this stimulates their underlying issues beyond the ability to manage them, and the trip and the guides are not trained to provide support in such situations. If you have concerns about this, especially if you are working with a therapist or counselor, we highly recommend you discuss your situation with us before registering for either the Adult Wilderness Quest or The Adult Mountain Quest. We want to truly make sure that this trip is a good match for your current situation and capability and for you to get the most out of your experience.
