"When the Thunderbirds first came to earth there weren't any trees. So they used rocks and made great stone nests atop the ancient peaks in the highlands. Here they could see their whole world all around them."
A vision quest is an ancient human practice that helps us find answers, guidance and direction in our life. Sometimes when we are feeling lost in life we need to focus on what really matters most -- finding our way!
Doing a vision quest is a way to tap into the good medicine of the world all around us and also the world within us; the world of our own spirit. Your spirit matters. Finding your way with your spirit often requires the need to seek a personal vision. The medicine work I do with you begins by bringing you on the land to help you see the world in an Algonquin spiritual way. Learning to see with new eyes is the best place to start.
Seeking your vision by doing a vision quest is the activity that will help you receive guidance from the natural world and the manitous (spirits) of the land all around you. So, to help you see your spiritual vision we travel to and utilize a spiritual medicine place out in the wilderness, up in Ontario's rugged highlands, traditionally called a Thunderbird Nest.
At one time I had to find and learn how to utilize a Thunderbird Nest myself; to help me grow spiritually so I could be better in life. My own quest was the way I learned to help others use a Thunderbird Nest. It was a long journey but you can learn about it by reading My Story.
I'm a knowledge keeper of old Algonquin Thunderbird Medicine Ways. As such I'm a wilderness guide, a helper, a storyteller, a counsellor and a teacher. I teach people how to find direction at a Thunderbird Nest. My role is to help you see your vision so you can create your reality.
We are taught we cannot create something unless we first see it. Once we do, we simply follow the path to make our vision a reality. Along the way we stay focused on our vision and we make choices by following the guidance our vision has gifted us. Otherwise nothing changes.
I can't tell you everything about vision quests and the Thunderbird Nest on this website. Learning to do your spiritual vision quest will require working with me in person. Please contact me for more information.
