Gathering for a Quest
Teachings With Annie Spencer and
when we finally quest.
- Learning to work within an oral tradition.
- Polishing our intention.
- Learning to read the signs that nature sends us.
- Deepening our connection with the natural world.
- Learning basic Native American Medicine Wheel teachings.
- Learning to make prayer ties.
- Tuvan and Finnish practices for daily interaction with the Land and Spirit.
- Tuvan and Finnish stories about living in right relationship with Land and community.
- Exploring the ancient stories and customs of our own lands.
- Finding our voice. How can we raise our voice in song to the Spirits, to the land and to the wind
- Learning the language of prayer and gratitude so that we might have words fit for the sacred.
- Making a day walk and later a night walk and telling our story in preparation for the quest.
The red thread running through all these teachings will be our final goal: next summer’s vision quest. We hope that by the time you go out to quest you will have developed a range of skills and increased your sensitivity to the natural world so that you may have a deeper quest. These practices of course will enrich your life in general.
