"In particular, the longevity and effectiveness of cross-cultural rituals and healing practices are evidence that there is a logical process and ﬂow to our cosmological soul recovery.These include vision quests, sweat lodges, and nature awareness schools, led by experienced guides, healers, shamans, and wise elders. However such healing is pursued, it is important to spend reverent time in nature to mend these ancient wounds."
"A Vision Quest is an experience of deeper understanding of Nature and Spirit. It is a ceremony practiced by American Indians. To prepare for this "insight" one must first cleanse the body and mind by going through a Inipi or sweat lodge. Then with the help of a Holy Man is told certain things and must go to a spot, usually on a holy mountain, and stay 2 or 3 days During this time no food is eaten and one does not sleep but spends the time in deep prayer and observation. Many times, but not always, there is a vision. This vision is then shared with the Holy Man to help learn of its meaning. Sometimes the meaning is not shown for several years afterward. "
