This is a contemporary experience based on ancient vision quests that act as a rite of passage essentially to understanding your personal link with nature. The quests usually have a duration of twelve days and the process includes fasting, solitude, poetry, ceremonial drumming and dance. Together with exercises to open up your psyche these practices are intended to separate you from everyday consciousness to enable self-discovery.

The Animas Valley Institute runs several quest trips every year to locations such as Death Valley in California, Cortez in Colorado or Lima in Montana. All the settings are remote and the focus of the quests is on healing, renewal and empowerment.
