This is the time we have been waiting for!

July 20-24, 2022

Due to Covid, the Practicum will be Online in a zoom format for 2022.

Registration for Questing in 2022 is Full- but please register and join us in Supporting this year at Practicum.


The value of being alone for times of contemplation and communion with one’s higher power has been known for thousands of years. Man has been going into the desert, the wilderness, or to the top of the mountain to seek guidance and blessings since before the beginning of recorded history. The Native American version of this experience is a ceremony known as the Vision Quest. In Vision Quest, one “goes to the top of the hill to die.” The “Old Self” is left on top of the mountain, as it is a new person that returns, with a new sense of purpose for their life. The Practicum offered here at LightSong will explore the meaning behind the Vision Quest and the practical application of this experience towards achievement of fulfillment and meaningful purpose in our lives.

The Practicum teaches how to build spiritual power and spiritual connection. The power and connection you achieve are determined by the amount of time and dedication that you put into your work. Through ceremony, ritual, ample opportunity to talk from the heart, and other practices, you can acknowledge and then leave behind whatever might stand in the way of your spiritual rebirth. Telepathy is the ability to communicate energetically through the language of the heart. We will learn about this in LightSong classes and on the land. The Practicum is geared toward heightening our telepathic abilities.

For those questing, this program is an opportunity to utilize the power generated under you and for you by the supporters in the camp; to go further than you think you can go on your own. You ask for the vision and connection to Spirit that is beyond yourself. For supporters in camp, we experience the ability to send energy and power to those on the hill. This generates a current for them to use to reach heights, dimensions, and connections to Spirit that they are unable to reach alone. Our collective power is greater than the power of the individual, and each of us gains a collective healing. Here we discover that truly, we are one.

Join us for this week-long intensive as we explore how to:

Live in a harmonious community of well-beings, within the container of an ancient, sacred ceremony
Experience the New Earth and the fifth dimensional energies of positive instant manifestation
Feel the thrill of communicating with nature and one another telepathically

The skills gained in this intensive practicum are unprecedented in their value to enhance manifestation and live as an intentionally conscious person.

The practicum teaches how to build spiritual power and spiritual connection. We come together as a community and through love and spirit, we relearn and expand our ability to communicate from the heart.

In this week-long intensive practicum you will:

Experience rich lessons about the spirits of the land and the unseen realms
Learn to enhance your abilities to send energy and power to those on the hill
Have an opportunity to utilize the power generated under you, for you, by the supporters in the camp, to go further than you think you can go on your own
Experience a spiritual rebirth
Have ample opportunity to talk from the heart, and other practices, you are able to acknowledge, and then leave behind, whatever might stand in your way
Reach for the stars on behalf of your life, your family or community, learning more about who you are and where you are going
Explore the parallel dimensions of the realms of beings who share our planet

At Telepathic Practicum, our collective power is greater than the power of the individual. Each of us gains a collective healing. Here we rediscover that, truly, we are one.

What our community members say…

Attending the yearly Telepathic Practicum with its powerful combination of ceremony, ritual, teachings, and traditional singing in an amazingly beautiful setting, transformed me permanently. Then add in the focused teachings on appreciation and I will never be the same!

Melinda J. ~ Sound Healer and Fused Glass Artist

Thank you for the opportunity to learn and grow in such a loving and nurturing environment.   I loved spending time every night around the fire until sometime after midnight or later. I was amazed at the way the energy from the fire could be felt in my hands and feet, and it varied depending on what we were sending or releasing. It was amazing!

Thank you again!

Donna Lindmark

I am overwhelmed and deeply moved by my experiences at Practicum. I wish to express my
gratitude for your opening up this experience to me and allowing me to attend.
I appreciate absolutely every moment I spent there: every person, every lesson, every spirit,
every tree, every magical synchronicity.
Thank you, too for calling in the spirits as you did. That was an exquisite ceremony and I loved
hearing it and watching many beings arrive.
Love and light to you and all you're doing to anchor this beautiful energy and knowledge for all of life on the earth at this time.
