"A Quest of any kind is a heroic journey. It is a rite of passage that carries you to an inner place of silence and majesty and encourages you to live life more courageously and genuinely.
"I highly recommend Catriona's quests. They are truly sojourns of the heart." Denise Linn

What Makes My Vision Quests Unique:
Everyone is welcome on my Quests - whether you are an avid and experienced camper/outdoors person or about to embark on your first outdoor overnight experience. My approach is nurturing and inspiring.
Gain from an on-going process of unfolding and discovery that draws upon several cultural traditions and belief systems including shamanism, Native American (in the footsteps of my teacher Denis Linn), and Celtic traditions (My ancestors are one of the most ancient Celtic (Pictish) Clans and proof of their deep understanding of nature and the elements goes back thousands of years to before the Pyramids and Stonehenge.
I work with nature, spirit and energy from animals, plants and the Earth.
Experience powerful energy practices, dream recall and interpretation, and spirit animal journeys and much more:).
The Quest experience allows each person to experience the beauty and stillness of nature, as well as share memorable moments with other Questers.
The Northern California Quest will be held at the same location where Catriona has been taking people on Vision Quests in California for over a decade. This is in the largest remaining protected area of wilderness in California, with over 87,000 acres of beautiful wild open spaces. The terrain of the park is rugged, varied, and beautiful, with lofty ridges and steep canyons. Once the home of Ohlone Indians, the park is now home to a fascinating variety of plants and animals.
This Quest includes a private intake session with Catriona and Celtic Birthday interpretation (including a reading of your unique Celtic Birthday and special gifts in relation to the elements Earth, Air, Fire and Water), training in meditation, dream work, natural history of the wildlife and habitat, and shamanic journeys.
All participants are also able to benefit from a pre-Quest soul coaching program with in-depth and powerful practices for 28 days before the Quest.
This intimate Quest will book with a minimum of 6 people and no more than 12. This small group size also allows for individualized time with Catriona as well as spending shared time with a remarkable group for a truly memorable life experience.
I work with ancient mysteries, the energy in the land, the animals and the trees to help people connect with their inner wisdom and find a path with a heart.
I believe that our individual and planetary journey to health and wholeness is heightened when we deepen our connection with the Earth.
I have a deep connection, love and understanding of nature and the wilds. I am also a highly skilled energy worker who has a deep connection to the wild animals, the trees and the land. I assist people in connecting with nature in a deep and meaningful way that they may not be able to achieve on their own.
Nature is a Portal to a Divine Realm.
I believe in each person's ability to connect deeply with nature, their own spirits, and find the abiding unchanging part of themselves that exists in unity with all life...
Once you sign up - Catriona will send you a Quest Intake Questionnaire. If there is room in the Quest - a detailed list of Quest Items to bring is sent to you.
In order to prepare for your Quest you will have an intake session with Catriona, and you will be receive a FREE ancient Celtic Birthday Reading, and a powerful 28 day soul coaching program developed by Denise Linn of Native American heritage and a renowned international teacher and healer. I am recommneded by Denise as a Vision Quest Guide in her book Quest: A Guide for Creating Your Own Vision Quest and I am certified by Denise as an Advanced practitioner of Soul Coaching
