The Vision Quest is an experience that has been present in many indigenous cultures in the world along humankind history and has characterized itself for the closeness to the Spirit and for the conservation of these traditions expressing that closeness.

 

Along history the Vision Quest is an old practice among people of shamanic traditions of the entire world. It is carried out in many different ways and it varies according to the cultural background of the seeker

 

In every case the basic element is insulation in wilderness from one to several days, frequently including fasting, chants, dances and prayers, that are made with the intention to call upon the Great Spirit so that he brings us the Vision that will guide our life from that moment on.

 

Our work is rooted in the surviving Toltec tradition, which can perfectly be applied to people of the modern world and may be successful into human development work.
