INTERNATIONAL RETREAT  in Czech Republic - traditional american native ritual

here in Europe  - CZECH REPUBLIC

led by two men - the American native and the European native

next date: 

sorry 2.6.-7.6.2024 is already full

 New date is 15.-20.9.2024


It is a retreat and meeting. It is a traditional American native  ritual - rite of passage. It is about  staying alone in nature for 3 days, just you and nature. It is about connection with your lifeforce, will, intention, your prayers. You can get in touch with yourself, your body and soul, your angels and demons. You will understand more your current state, your relations, issues, needs, life mission. The vision quest is something  about you, your contents. It is not about what  others want you to do. It is about what you must do, because you want it and you know that you don’t want to miss it. Searching for the Vision could be your unique way how to be more aware.

We want to invite you to be a questor – the one who is “seeking the vision”.
