|Women's Vision Quest- A Rite of Passage in Nature|
The purpose of a Vision Quest is to pull away from the world and relax enough to self-reflect and see the real wonderful you and have time and space to explore to know you more, connect to nature, the land and spiritual guides and teachers, and your highest self to call for a vision for the rest of your life, and hear your true self speak.
Are you moving through a big change this year? Are you preparing for a new phase of your life or work? Come for a powerful weekend of ceremonies, journeys, transformation, and rebirth with Shaman Janet StraightArrow.
A person goes on a Vision Quest when they are ready to rebirth their life in a new way. This rite of passage is a carefully developed retreat offering guidance and support to help you move through transition and new beginnings.
Pause and get off the track of your life to go inside to discover new levels of your true voice, needs, and choices accessing your inner wisdom as a gift you give yourself. Awaken clarity, life purpose, and joy as we break through illusions, fears, and ego. This is a gentle yet powerful life-changing weekend.
On May 1, we begin the journey with weekly emails to support your inner process as preparation. Janet is available for check ins and private sessions to prepare for the weekend helping you integrate the process before, or after the weekend.
The physical retreat is held for three days, Friday through Sunday, July 21-23. at our private retreat space at a farm in Accord, NY.
Janet StraightArrow has been leading quests and spiritual Shamanic retreats for over twenty-two-years in the northeast and mid-Atlantic states.
After holding several primitive eight day Vision Quest camping retreats on sacred land, Janet found people needed a shorter experience and the opportunity for more comfort.
She found a perfect location to offer both camping and an indoor sleeping space keeping the nature of the quest. We have been using this space for 6 years with great appreciation and success.
Janet developed a way for the experience to be full and powerful for everyone beginning with regular emails to help you prepare spiritually and personally. See testimonials below to have a sense of others experiences with Janet.
The Vision Quest brings out my gifts and abilities and serves my life-purpose to be a guide on your journey. People come from many traditions and walks of life and we join in a circle of Universal love and healing. Having fun is a bonus. Feeling safe is essential.

|Retreat Details and Costs|
I have decided to refine the Vision Quest to allow for a deeper experience. This year we are limited to eight women to allow more personal support.
I feel so blessed to have a safe container for the group on a private Farm in the lower Catskills in Accord, NY, near New Paltz and Woodstock, New York, north of Ellenville, just off Rt 209 and easy access to the New York Thruway.
With all of the changes in our world and in our individual lives, it is powerful to gather and have group ceremony and companions on this singular journey.
This retreat space is well located for people in the Northeast and New England. We have beautiful safe woods to camp in with flush toilet and hot outdoor shower. close to the home base cabin. There are indoor beds with private spaces spread out over two floors in a 2000 sq ft retreat house for those who prefer their evenings inside.
We have a modern kitchen to prepare food with dining tables inside and outside to enjoy community meals. We have a balance of private and community ceremonies and preparations throughout the weekend.
When we are in our quest space we are close enough and far enough away from one another in order to have our own experience.
The cost to participants is $800.00 ASAP to ensure your space, or by May 1.
Payment plans available adding a small additional cost.
