Overview

Blending numerous heritages, wisdoms, and teachings, this powerfully wrought book encourages people to take charge of their lives, heal themselves, and grow.

Movingly rendered, The Book of the Vision Quest is for all who long for renewal and personal transformation. In this revised edition—with two new chapters and added tales from vision questers—Steven Foster recounts his experiences guiding contemporary seekers. He recreates an ancient rite of passage—that of “dying,” “passing through,” and “being reborn”—known as a vision quest. A sacred ceremony that culminates in a three-day, three-night fast, alone, in a place of natural power, the vision quest is a mystical, practical, and intensely personal journey of self-knowledge.

    A Book For All Human Beings

    My husband is currently on his vision quest. And I decided that I would like to experience this book for myself. Once I began to read I could hardly put it down! It gives you and insight into the power of a vision quest. It reveals for many, a new possibility of life. I highly recommend everyone to read this book. It has opened my mind and my heart. I actually felt that I, in some ways, were on my own quest! It is so empowering and is the gift of life.

    Pseudo deprivation studies disguised as vision quests.

    Much too communal to pass as a real vision quest guide. It's redeeming qualities are the introspection that participants experience in the presence of real or perceived deprivation. This book and this vision quest process may be good for someone that has very real and severe identity problems or is perhaps trying to break free of drug dependence or some other negative influence that has control of their mind or body. Otherwise, if you are trying to get your soul in touch with nature I would recommend you read some more traditional writing by native americans on the subject. To better grasp the intent and process of a vision quest some writing by Ohiyesa (Charles A. Eastman) are informative. To delve in to the more spiritual side, writings by Vine Deloria enlighten us about the true power of the spirit. To help you get an understanding of the American Indian's attachment and truly harmonious relationship with nature I recommend Seven Arrows by Hyemeyohsts Storm. But most of all I encourage you go out into the wilderness alone and commune with nature as often as possible. That works even better than a good book!
