2020 Vision Quest

What is a vision quest? Why would I attend it?

A vision quest, in BearHeart’s words from his book, The Wind Is My Mother,
”If we really want to know ourselves, at some point we’re going to have to surrender to a Higher Power who knows all about us—our weaknesses, our mistakes, and our potentials. Many Native American tribes do that through our meditation known as “vision quest”—the setting aside of a time and place, alone out in Nature, to communicate with a Higher Being and explore that which is within.
Somewhere in that space and time as we are questing, answers come. It is an opportunity to know more about ourselves and some of the options that we have to choose from in life.“

The 2020 BearHeart Vision Quest will follow BearHeart’s vision quest protocols and will be held at the same location as the Gathering of Circles, and the week following it, starting August 04, and ending August 09. You can learn more about it on the GOC website, HERE and register on the website if you feel called to attend.

2019 Planning Meeting March 30

We are thrilled and excited to be celebrating 25 continuous years of The Gathering of Circles. We are planning on a big year, with extra guest speakers, an earlier start, a welcome lodge for early arrivals among other exciting activities, new and old. But we need your help. Your GOC requires many volunteers, coordinators, and good-hearted people willing to step up or simply lend a hand. Experience the joy of service to yourself and others by helping out. There’s something for everyone’s ability or interests.
