From the series The Viking Way we are offering a vision quest retreat in the mountains in the North of Greece to gain strength and to reconnect with the elements of the earth and fire.

The program is structured in a way that will allow you to gain strength and spiritual connection.
We will have a series of cleanses first that will lead you to the vision quest, a lonely night in the mountains in order to receive strength and the vision form the Gods. A night alone in the mountain with a shamanic medicine and shamanic blessing can be a very powerful experience.
This is an intense few days...please make sure you have a good rest before coming and after its finished.

After the Ceremony

After a ceremony or retreat where the teacher plants (Tobacco, Ayahuasca, San Pedro, Peyote, etc.) are used it is essential for you to set aside time to reflect on the experience.
If possible, allow yourself at least 3 days to reintegrate what you have experienced into your day-to-day life. You are likely to be very sensitive and open after your journey, so be gentle with yourself. Do your best to avoid stress and create a healing, quiet space where you can get plenty of rest, good sleep, healthy food and time in nature.
