Vision Quest Guardianship 

Learning to become a guardian for vision quest

Northern Drum offers training for those wanting to learn how to hold a vision quest and who are committed to going into the depths of the tradition. Teachings will be delivered in a way that respects the tradition, which has roots in different cultures all over the world.

Participants will be guided towards stepping into the role as the guardian: a role that is traditionally seen as a position of honour. The training will provide the participants with the skills that are needed to guide people on vision quests on practical, energetic and spiritual levels.  The teachings include ways to prepare the seekers for the ceremony; how to set up a safe and effective base camp; securing the area, building the sacred fire; holding the camp while the seekers are on the quest; as well as return, integration and support afterwards.

The training will embody a wide range of teachings, including the different purposes of the traditional vision quest, and how the ceremony can be used in the modern world of today, in a way that stays true to the essence. Participants will undertake a vision quest of their own as part of the training, and also learn some basic bushcraft skills.
