Women's Vision Fast, June 2-7
The Women's Vision Fast is a weeklong ceremony centered around a two-day wilderness solo and fast for women. Led by Michelle Apland, trained vision fast guide, this is an opportunity for women to create ceremony to mark change in their lives and to invite in the wisdom and clarity to support growth. Fasting, each woman will go alone into nature in order to hear the clarity that lies within and to listen to the wisdom of the wild.
A small group of women will enter into this ceremony together, preparing their minds and hearts, participating in the wilderness solo, and returning to share stories and claim meaning from their experiences.
The week runs from Sunday, June 2, at 5 pm to Friday, June 7, at 3 pm. Before the week begins, you will be asked to write a letter of intent for your fast and to participate in a conference call. Upon arrival, preparation involves journalling, reflection, site preparation, and group sharing.
The solo and fast lasts for two nights and two days. Women will carry water and minimal gear. The return focuses on rest, personal reflection, group sharing, and looking ahead to living your vision.
Tuition: Sliding scale: $500-$700
