VISION QUEST 2016 Recalibrating Passion and Purpose

 January 16-22   2016

VISIONING, Rejuvenation and Transformation on the Big Island of Hawaii

DREAM BIG ~ for yourself and for the world!

Take time this year to recalibrate and CREATE a powerful blueprint of success and JOY in 2015!  In the fresh field of the New Year discover the synergy between what the world needs and what you are here to give.  Journey from scattered desires to focused vision.  Remember the reason you came and crystallize your next step.

Our work uses creativity to delve and explore the messages of our soul and to bring forth the shining currents of our Dharma and destiny.  Our  journey of creative exploration takes us deep in the life of the soul, restoring connection to what has heart and meaning in our lives and bringing our life purpose into clear focus.  Our process culminates in a creative ‘Rite of Passage’ that claims the blossoming of your talents and abilities.

Dana has distilled a simple yet profound process to widen the aperture of inspiration and revelation. Using “right brain” modalities – visual, kinesthetic, symbolic, and intuitive – she helps us activate capacities that reach beyond the parameters of ordinary awareness.  She teaches us to access – and transform – our future.


  • Quickly access peak states of high vibration inspiration, soul intuition and creative flow.

  • Discern the difference between frivolous desires and deep soul callings, between subconscious patterns and super-conscious insights. Relinquish what no longer has heart and meaning for you so that you can direct your passion to what is essential.

  • Come to the center of yourself and align your life to the Divine blueprint of your Dharma and Destiny.  Synergize mind, body, heart, soul and spirit in service to your highest calling.

  • Activate multiple modes of intelligence to access the template of your future- now shining in the shimmering field of pure potential

  • Magnetize your VISION and make it REAL in 2015!

This inner odyssey takes place in a magic land of primordial power and pure Prana.  On the Big Island of Hawaii you will feel the rejuvenating energy of clean air and water, fresh vitalizing food, and the shakti of the fiery earth in formation.  As you melt into the astral beauty of sea and sky, you will absorb the raw power of LIFE- allowing it to replenish you in body, mind and Spirit.

We are also held within the context of a thriving spiritual community. Polestar ( models the strength of cooperative living and a life of ‘simple living, high thinking’.

Daily guided yoga and meditation + creative play and inner work + time in nature + deep relaxation and adventure + the support of a living community….a profound and unforgettable journey!
