Offering Visionary Leadership Training - Healing, Optimism, Purpose, Evolution
Questing is a powerful connective practice that allows human beings access into deeper communication and awareness. The quest itself can come in many forms and varies from lineage to lineage.
At its essence, a Quest is when a person holds the intention to seek out spiritual guidance and purpose, and expresses their commitment by being in isolation from community and forgoing human needs/comforts for a period of time. A Quest is a ceremonial process which allows someone to be fully supported by the spirit and natural world in their search for help or guidance.
A Quest can aid a person to understand their role in life by opening them up to deep understanding of themselves and their relationship to the world.
A traditional Quest consists of a person spending one to four days and nights (or longer) secluded in nature. This provides time for deep communion with the elemental forces, spiritual energies of...
Traditionally, the quest was scheduled a year in advance to give time for preparation. Preparation includes the process of gathering the Quest articles, building connections and support, purifying, and clarifying your intention.
After being introduced to the Woptura lineage and moving to their ancestral home, I was introduced to their powerful version of the Vision Quest. This specific lineage has developed and refined the Vision Quest over generations. Various layers have been added as generation after generation received spiritual guidance in creating a more effective ritual. A Vision Quest's effectiveness can be measured in what connections are accessed and what layers of protection are activated. The Vision Quest of this lineage has developed into a powerful means to access spiritual guidance safely. The lineage Vision Quest has a complexity level that I have not seen in other versions.

Just recognize that this lineage that you are learning from, it was not taken or stolen. This lineage was a gift that was passed on with the message, “You all need to learn how to do this”.
People that have not been raised with these ceremonies need these traditions because this is how life works. The message from my native teachers has been, “This is how we've lived as human beings on this earth. And this is what we want you to understand so that you can live as a human being on this earth, because we are all, on this earth together. And without you being a human being and us being human beings, there is going to be problems. We all need to be human beings. And this is how we've been able to become and maintain our humanness.”
Wherever you go in this world people historically had a way of using sweat therapy as a form of purification and healing. I know there was European sweat lodges, there was sweat lodges in England, and of course, ancient...
Human Beings have always searched to find meaning and understand purpose in life. Through profound nature interaction we can better understand who we are and our own unique gifts. When this is combined with supportive, conscious community, human beings manifest their highest potential. There are time tested methods which can help us deeply connect to nature and find our purpose. In this presentation we explore the meaning that can be found through interacting with creation in a symbiotic relationship.
Helpers Mentoring Society's Bison Project continues to be developed over the winter. At this time, the project is focused on supporting the small herd to thrive through the long cold season. The video above shows pictures and footage from a trail cam placed in the bison pasture. The bison (and other wildlife) grazes on about 20 acres of grass and wood areas at this time. This is enough land to support our small herd, with hay supplementation. Our future plans include fund raising to purchase/lease more acreage to grow the size of the herd - and public accessibility.
Many people around the world travel to South Dakota to connect to this incredible landscape and the creatures of this ecosystem. Each year hundreds of thousands of visitors travel to the Black Hills of South Dakota, many seeking to witness and bond with the bison. Unfortunately, each year people approach wild bison and cross into this powerful animal's personal space - often leading to...
We as human beings have this incredible power of unification and connection amongst ourselves, and with nature. And why do we have this ability? If we really question, why do we have this ability and what could it do for the world around us, it quickly becomes apparent that we have an ability to actually help nature in a very profound way.
I understand that every being in nature has a function to fill. And every being except humans is filling that function. Nature is changing and its moving energy - creating balance when it's all coordinated. The insects are moving through the soil and creating nutrients in the soil. Then that energy becomes, let us say a bird who is now attending the trees and moving upon the land. The birds are helping plants to grow and trees to grow, even by eating the berries and then releasing dropping that come out of it. Life is moving and it is creating this kind of mosaic of energy. Because of that, there's abundance and health - and...
It is our birth right as a human being to be able to connect to nature. Connection is great but what do we learn from the interactions with others? When a being of nature sits close to you do you ever get the sense that it is communicating with you? This is occurring all the time if we have the ears and the awareness to hear it.
In this video both Jacqueline and Sal will explore the connection between human beings and our natural relatives on this earth and delve into the relationship that is present between us and how we can learn to perceive the messages that are so important at this time. We will look at how through these relationships we can seek guidance in our lives. Nature is reaching out to the human family in loving desperation for us to change and live in a different way. Join us to learn to hear the messages that can inform us how to live.
We know that a connected individual can help the healing of others, but can we physically impact our environment through our own connections? Can we bring balance back to nature and have it thrive once again? In this video we explore what true miracles are possible if we walk a connected life. We call this the Helpers Journey and it is one of the reasons we created our 8 month program of the same name to help create truly connected human beings.

Throughout the turmoil of this year, we have found the ceremonies of this lineage to have been of profound support and an opportunity for deep, deep listening to how to best be in service to life. We are reaching out to everyone we know who is deeply committed to the creation of a healthier world to join their prayers with others around the globe to help re-energize the Earth.
This whole year has been a time of transition and great change for everyone and, as we have all experienced, prayer is one of our strongest anchors in these times. Moggie shared a call-out with us from the indigenous Australian elders who are seeking to enable simultaneous prayers around the world to help re-energize the earth by intensifying and increasing the global network of love and light, culminating with a collective prayer on the 21st December. Details of the original request are given below.
In order to build a depth of connection within this time...
A thing is right when it tends to preserve the integrity, stability and beauty of the biotic community. It is wrong when it tends otherwise. ~ Aldo Leopold
We have a concept of righting the wrong as passed down through the lineage teachings:
Mission Statement - To right the wrongs for health and well-being now and in service to the future generations.
What increases physical manifested life? Just to be clear, there life in spirit and there is physical life. They are not the same.
