    Have you ever questioned the nature of your reality?

    Have you ever wondered if there’s something beyond this 3D reality – this “matrix” we live in? Is there a way to escape the matrix and find freedom, sovereignty, truth? Vision Quest provides a dynamic way to challenge your everyday concept of reality and what is possible.

    Consciousness isn’t a journey upward, but a journey inward. Not a pyramid, but a maze. Every choice could bring you closer to the center or send you spiraling to the edges.

    This trek through the jungle with the support of sacred plant medicines will push you to your physical and mental limits and challenge you to step beyond them. If you have found your truth within yourself there is nothing more in this whole existence to find…you learn how to be an infinite, limitless creator connected to pure Source.

    What is Vision Quest? Empowerment. Serenity. Gnosis.

    Phoenix Rising black and white

    Vision Quest: Phoenix Rising is a journey of self-awareness and discovery of spiritual mysteries.

    We surrender to the wisdom of the jungle, stay present in the moment, lead from the heart, and honor the great beauty all around us to rise up a sisterhood of phoenixes. The stillness of the heart listening to the flow of the Universe will provide the surrender and serenity of Love.

    Vision Quest Infinity Eternity Universality

    Vision Quest is an opportunity to empower women to create a life of freedom, strength, balance, serenity, and connection to spirit. This journey begins with a rebirth in the womb of the Earth at a traditional temazcal sweat lodge, followed by a highly challenging trek through the jungle on peyote (barefoot encouraged), and ending with a sacred plant medicine ceremony.

    Due to the high-risk nature of Vision Quest, space is limited to 10 women maximum for safety reasons.

    Through this perspective-blasting trek in the lush Costa Rican jungle alongside our sisters, we find inner vision and create a life of truth. We choose to be radiant, contented, blissful…a phoenix song unto ourselves. Our whole lives becomes a prayer without any words, or better to say a prayerfulness, a grace, a beauty which does not belong to our mundane world, a ray of light coming from the beyond into the darkness of our world.

    “When you open yourself to the continually changing, impermanent, dynamic nature of your own being and of reality, you increase your capacity to love and care about other people and your capacity to not be afraid. You’re able to keep your eyes open, your heart opens, and your mind open. And you notice when you get caught up in prejudice, bias, and aggression. You develop an enthusiasm for no longer watering those negative seeds, from now until the day you die. And you begin to think of your life as offering endless opportunities to start to do things differently.” – Pema Chödrön

    Where does Vision Quest: Phoenix Rising take place?

    Vision Quest Nauyaca Waterfall Diamante Valley
    Nauyaca Waterfalls in the Diamante Valley

    Vision Quest is held in the sacred Diamante Valley of Costa Rica, one of the world’s most biodiverse regions. We are dedicated to supporting the Diamante Valley community with the mission of co-creating an ecologically harmonious world and regenerative, sustainable future for all life.

    The Diamante Valley is sacred land tucked away below a lush green mountain where ancient indigenous tribes once lived. Many artifacts have been found on this area and there are many sacred sites around. The ever-flowing river has cascading waterfalls, full of wildlife and magic, where the jungle speaks and offers a sacred space of support, silence, and healing for our journeys with power plant spirits.
