|Join us for this Profound Experience|
|Vision Quest Mitote Retreat|
JULY 28-30 Accord, NY, south of Woodstock, NY
A person goes on a Vision Quest when they are ready to rebirth their life in a new way. Be open for receiving deeper purpose and meaning in your life. The weekend is a ceremony marking change and awakening to the new unknown territory on the next part your life journey.
We arrive on Friday afternoon-evening and open the circle. We begin the formal ceremony on Saturday morning. We participate in an unfolding process that leads us through the weekend. We locate our outside sacred space in nature and prepare for the evening Mitote ceremony and inward Journey on Sunday.
The Mitote ceremony on Saturday night raises our vibration, purifies us, and releases the illusions of our past, as we take turns holding the light and chanting the Gayatri Mantra, we move into lucid dreaming while others chant.
We awaken early Sunday and immediately walk out onto the land and enjoy our Quest. As we sit quietly in nature we open to the signs and symbols that nature presents, and reflect and find the truth inside of us. Nature nurtures us and is a mirror for us to see us clearly. Messages unfold and we come back with more wholeness.
During the quest, you are close enough, and far enough away, from Janet and one another for a safe deep experience.
We are re-birthed over the rainbow bridge as we re-enter. We share food and stories and process our adventure and relax and come all the way back. We close the weekend, and are ready to go home.
Janet shares a blending of traditions and encourages you to enjoy your own way too. Janet will provide, healthy, sacred, nourishing food.
The energy here is perfect for going in and discovering a vision for your life. In Janet's years living and teaching and offering retreats in the Hudson Valley she found deep peace and connection and enjoys sharing this special place with others.
The entire weekend is $550, including food and housing. $200. deposit ASAP, today or by June 15, to hold deposit for our space. Begin the journey as soon as you sign up with more information to help you prepare. RSVP

|The Quest Experience - What, Why? |
|The Vision Quest is a time to move out of everyday life and create a space for you to hear yourself and to awaken your deeper and higher truth and love. When we allow ourselves the room to awaken ourselves in this way we are inspired to go home and live in a better way that works for us.|
Each person has their own reason for attending. Janet guides us through inner and outer spaces throughout the weekend. Each person finds their own way with this container and practices. This is a ceremony that builds and brings you many answers and clarity and ways to live it when you go home.
StraightArrow has been holding quests for fifteen years and is always honored to hold the container for you to be safe to have your best experience. Janet is strong and clear and also nurturing and supportive.
Janet will offer ways to prepare and begin the process now. Focus, intent, tools and practices will open doors to you. Our personal effort gives us the best experience. Get ready for the adventure of you.
Our new location is closer to our mainly New Jersey and New York base and easy for New England students as well, allowing us less travel and more time to relax and be in the space. The journey begins at sign up so please send your deposit and begin today. Any questions. 973-647-2500

|What is the Mitote and more... |
|Hi All, Janet here.|
I had been holding week-long Vision Quests for several years, until I found people wanted a shorter version.
I meditated on how could we accomplish the same level of transformation in a weekend. I found that it could be accomplished with great preparation and care. We have been holding one of these each year since.
This is when I added the Mitote Ceremony to the quests. It came from my many experiences with this ceremony during the two years working with a Toltec Nagual Shaman.
This ceremony includes the very sacred Gayatri Mantra, Lucid Dreaming and a Fire ceremony. This is a very powerful experience to raise our energy, and cleanse us deeply, to prepare us the night before our time alone questing on the land.
Students who have studied yoga will recognize this chant as the highest vibration chant for cleansing and enlightenment. Its a beautiful experience that follows us home and can become a regular practice.
For more on the Mantra see below.
I look forward to the opportunity to support your journey.
"When fear comes up, it is often that you are about to cross into a powerful new experience of your life. Dismiss the fear and allow you to fly."
Blessings of Delight,
