Welcome to join us to the Vision Quest journey by the mountains of Jotunheimen in Norway. In the future we will also journey to Zimbabwe’s Eastern mountains. We travel under the leadership of the shaman. In these trips we travel in groups in to the mountains and we will spend the night in the wilderness. Mountain tours are a powerful experience just for the attractions, but also because of the the personal- and collective program organized by Michael. There will be collective and individual meditations and rituals in the program.

Michael, sangoma-shaman and healer, was born in the Eastern mountains of Zimbabwe and has inherited the spiritual abilities as a gift, known as the lion spirit or Mhondoro. As a Mhondoro he has the connection to the spirits of the holy mountain spirits. Michael loves the mountains and he has a special connection to them, which the participants, who he takes with him, will be discovering and experiencing. He also makes vibrational plant medicine for physical, emotional, mental and spiritual conditions.
Respect of the Mountains
Michael tells that the energy of the mountains and the spirits are universal. He seems to understand the language and culture of the mountains. “Some of the energies we call positive and some negative”, Michael tells. As a leader of the Vision Quest Michael function as middleman and mediator and a “spiritual lawyer”. The dos and don’ts, which Michael gives participants when we are in the mountains on a Vision Quest-tour are absolute! The participants have seen in previous trips, what are the consequences if his guidance is not followed fully.
Michael stresses that it is important to be aware of the forces of nature and have respect for them. “In Zimbabwe, according to the Traditional customs, before traveling to the sacred mountains, we ask for the appointment with the local traditional leaders in order to get permission to visit the mountains and receive a blessing”, he tells and continues that the mountains have energies that only a Seer is able to see. A lot of people don’t care about this truth and there has been a number of accidents due to the arrogant behavior: “it is well known that in my birthplace mountains, the Nyanga mountains, there has been many mysterious disappearances,” Michael adds. To this day Zimbabwe tourism industries will give guidelines on how to behave in the mountains and to respect local customs and traditions.
Vision Quest is an experience of which you will not forget. With the help of the Nature, the group and Michaels guidance, you will be experiencing a new state of mind and see your life with a new perspective. With that clarity you know what is your next step.
“The plants and flowers are my friends; I learn to know them and I know what they each need. ” Michael’s garden is an oasis, where visitors will be happy to sit and enjoy the plants and the energies. Michael tells us about his experiences: “Every summer morning a little bird comes to the fence to sit and sing to me. I hear from that birdsong the world news, as well as personal messages from the life of people, that I should be dealing with. ”
In the nature we find everyday rites and the rhythms of our lives; the spring is for sowing, summer for growing, autumn is for harvesting and winter is for resting. We plant, we grow, we harvest and rest all the time, many times during the day!
Therefore, in making these annual rites of sowing, harvesting and resting, we will also, in the same way do our daily rites. The positive results of these rites are that we empower our psyche.
We had a fantastic Vision Quest with the group of women from Finland in 2015.
Last summer Vision Quest to the mountains of Jotunheimen was 19.-22.7.2016. We did also an other Quest in august 2016.
Every Vision Quest forms itself according to the spiritguides and the guides of the participants. Here is the outline of the program.
The Vision Quest includes preparation with herbs and cleansing sauna-ritual (hot room), guidance to dream-work, Welcome ritual – we acknowledge the spirits of the mountains and ask for the mercy and protection accordingly. Hike to the top and building the camp. Opening ceremony with drumming, instruments and song. Channeling by Michael for the group and program accordingly. Michaels wife Pirkko will assist him with the Vision Quest.
We start the program at our home in Valdres. We stay and sleep in the Vision Quest place in the wilderness and the third night in the mountain cabin.
During the Vision Quest we will work as a group and the group will receive individual directions and guidance for the “next step” in the spiritual path. We will sleep in the wilderness or tents and we make food collectively.
