Discover Who You Really Are
A Wilderness Vision Quest is a rite of passage and sacred journey honoured by many cultures across the world.
Its purpose is to reveal the truth of who you are, on the very deepest levels.
The Flowstate Wilderness Quest is a 4 month journey, the pinnacle of which is a 7-day experience in wild nature, including 3 days and nights alone.
We let nature do the teaching. But we also share our love of poetry, story-telling, myth, spiritual practice and philosophy and pay homage to indigenous North American, South American and Australian shamanic traditions, lore, wisdom and medicines.
We are honoured to be invited to hold the wildnerness vigil on very potent and sacred initiation country that plays a central role in the creation stories of many indigenous tribes of Australia.
This Quest is not for those looking to tick something off a bucket list. We invite into quest only the most sincere and committed seekers of truth.
Make no mistake: this is an enchanting yet gritty journey into wilderness and your own psyche.
However, no prior experience of wilderness survival is necessary.
All that is required from you is the willingness to show up to the threshold… and step in.
If you feel the call, you will know it. There will be fear- if there isn’t you aren’t ready.
When is the Flowstate Vision Quest?
The Quest experience covers 4 months from the start of March end of June, 2o20.
We require all Questers to commit to a 4 month mentoring journey- of which the Quest is the the middle point- because this is a serious commitment and preparation is essential to get the most from this.
The one week Wildnerness Vigil takes place April 25- May 2nd 2020.
Where is the Wildnerness Vigil held?
We Quest on sacred country situated on the edges of Yengo National Park, 2 hours north-west of Sydney, NSW, Australia. This country has been part of initiation practices for up to 15,000 years. Yengo, the mountain that holds the space is the centre of all creation, according to local lore.
After years of working in this area, holding ceremony and paying deep respect to the ancestors and spirits of this country, we feel supported, protected and blessed to do this work here.
What is the schedule?
The 4 month of private mentoring requires no more than an internet connection and laptop. Every 2 weeks you will tune in for a private session with Leon or Jiro.
The Wildnerness Vigial is 7 days in deep in the bush.
The first and last 2-days are spent in preparation and integration. The middle 3-days are spent in solitude, with nothing but water, shelter, clothing… and of course the sun, moon, stars, animals, minerals, plants and spirits of the land.
What happens on the Solo?
You will be fasting from food and things familiar to you.
But you will be feasting on natural beauty, the rawness of the elements and the dance with your soul. The power of this ceremony is in the stopping back of all that is inessential, all layers of distraction from the present moment.
In this place of spaciousness, time slows down or becomes an abstract notion.
You drop deeply into the present moment, and enter a dance between the inner and outer landscapes of your life.
What happens from here is your business. Sacred business.
What support will you have?
On every step of this journey, you will be supported by the Flowstate team of trained facilitators.
Our promise to you is that we will do all we can to allow you to safely commit to this time-honoured path to reveal your soul purpose and unique genius.

The FlowQuest was a fulcrum moment in my life. It served as an anchor that helped me pivot into the most beautiful and natural direction change. I am forever different as a result.Steve BrophyEntrepreneur, educator, Coach
The hike, the swim, the chats, the laughter, the hugs the new friendships, just meeting other warriors. The Flow Quest was a beautiful, deep and sacred adventure into the unknown.Colin HewittTech Founder
I learned the importance of real conversations and surrounding myself with self-aware people. Learning the power of breath.
I would describe this experience as a rare opportunity to rip yourself out of everyday life, connect with nature and people on their own quest for self-awareness, nourish yourself, and allow space for new thinking (potentially a new “you”!) to emerge.Ben ReidStart-Up Founder & Advisor
