I have been preparing for a year and I am finally ready to start my spiritual journey!
Goodbye, see you soon!
Goodbye Marlee, we will miss you!
Please help me find a sacred location and guide me on my path in becoming an adult
Marlee is very excited to become a young lady and start a new chapter of her life. Marlee visits a wise elder to guide her with her vision quest to encounter an intense, solitary, spiritual experience to seek direction in life. She tells the elder that she has prepared for a year and is mature enough to be seen and treated as an adult in her community. Her exciting journey awaits!
I'm hungry and thirsty! I can't seem to envision my spirit animal
I see a bear!! That is my spirit animal.
Marlee is very excited to share her journey with her family, community and friends. She is a little nervous to leave her family, but is eager to go on her journey and is ready to find her spirit animal and become an adult!
What have you discovered throughout your journey Marlee?
I will guide youth in the vision quest, so they can become adults and find their direction in life
After Marlee says her goodbyes, she visits a sweat lodge for purification. Marlee she can sing, pray, meditate and simply be calm while reflecting on the steps of her journey She will also think of spiritual locations to find her spirit animal. She will also fast, meaning she cannot eat or drink anything.
Congratulations!! How was the quest?
It was spiritual and relaxing! But I am hungry.
Marlee is feeling hungry and thirsty, but that will not discourage her from completing her spiritual journey. After a few days, Marlee finally envisions her spirit animal, a bear!
After her long trip, Marlee returns home to discuss her vision with a shaman and that her teaching is to guide other youth to partake in the vision quest to those who seek direction in their lives. Marlee is grateful for the vision quest and now understands her purpose in life!
Marlee goes to surprises her family and community after meeting with the shaman. Everyone is excited to learn about Marlee's experiences and visions. Her family is proud to call her an adult and is excited for her to follow the path she discovered.
