  • Calian, I believe you are ready to enter adulthood and begin your vision quest.
  • Calian does a smudging and the sacred herbs are burned and brushed over his ears, mouth, heart, hand to purify his body.
  • The Sweat Lodge is to purify your spirit and restore your relationship with the Creator.

  • Its almost been a day of my vision quest. Hopefully I will receive the vision of my spirit animal.
  • A year passed, Calian is now 14 and ready to enter adulthood. He asked the Shaman to help guide and prepare him.
  • After a few days, Calian envisions a bear while observing the nature.
  • The Shaman then appoints him to a sweat lodge as he pours water on hot rocks to create steam. Here they talk, sing, pray, meditate and reflect in creation stories.
