Central Vermont Community Quests
The Central Vermont Community Quest, including a solo fast, is created and guided for and by others in the community. Our vision is a web of people who are committed:
There is a requested donation to help cover expenses. Guides are not compensated for their time in any aspect of offering the quest.
Adults join the Circle by invitation from someone who has quested in the group. The Circle is called each year in the fall. Preparation begins in January, the solo fast is in early spring. Each Quest culminates with a Return Ceremony held by those who have quested before in the Community Circle, community Elders, family, and friends.
There are two Circles, one for people who identify as women and one for people who identify as men.
