Vision Quest

Friday 8/24 from 2:30-3:30 with Rev. Dr. Karalee Hawkins and Rev. Janet Olson

Part 1 - Seeking a Vision with Intention for the Renewal of the Alliance of Divine Love

Through a panoramic, sacred journey of the Medicine Wheel, guided by American Indian Spirituality elders Rev Dr Kara Hawkins and Rev Janet Olson, we will Spirit ourselves into the Dreamtime through sacred voice, song, and percussion. We will be accompanied by the Spirit Keepers of the Four Winds, who will guide us in our journey from our Birth, through our Growth, and then through space and time of ADL’s transition, and our roles as ministers manifesting our intention for the Renewal, the Rebirth of the Alliance.

Part 2 - Seeking and Manifesting our Intention through “Journaling While Journeying”

Our vision quest continues through the rest of Friday and through Saturday, where we will move as shamans between worlds, yet at the same time experiencing both, the Physical and Spiritual “Journaling While Journeying.” You are invited to take your journals with you to catch your inspirations and dreamtimes relating to the visions and guidance you have received for the renewal of ADL, and your role in its manifestation.

Part 3 - Sharing our Vision for the Renewal of ADL

Our Sunday Service will be a time for sharing our experiences and visions we received, accompanied by voice, song and music in between.
