We are a community of women that have one thing in common: the desire to defy our own limits, indoors and outdoors. We explore, we push, we persevere and we support. We never give up on ourselves or each other. We know that women in the wild make for strong, independent and courageous leaders. We are mothers, sisters, wives, partners, friends and just general badasses. And we want YOU to become a part of our tribe! What are you waiting for? Be Bold, Be Brave, Be Betty! Join us on this trip!
Do you long for time to deepen into a passion, a calling, or a life purpose?
This trip is for anyone looking to deepen their connection to both nature and self. The river gives us ample space for play and laughter as well as solitude and introspection.
The Women’s Vision Quest is the perfect canvas for your self discovery. Bring your intentions, we’ll bring the rest.*
We are blessed to live in a time where more and more outfits facilitate wilderness fasts and visionary retreats. The River’s Path puts a twist on this form—a vision quest experience on the river. This trip includes a 48-hour solo during which it is optional to fast, and for that time we will set up base camp in a canyon and will not be traveling. Every participant is encouraged to set an intention for their solo time. During the first two days of the trip, we build community and trust through playful daytime floats and fire-side evening councils in order to be able to articulate and witness each other’s intentions. After the solo time among the red-rock canyons, we return to the temporary and special community we have created so that we can help each other prepare to go ‘back home’ while carrying the experience of our quests on the river.
In partnership with The River’s Path, Bold Betties is offering a supported 48-hour solo vision quest experience on Labyrinth Canyon as part of a 7 day canoe river trip down the Green River of Utah. A deeply spiritual journey, a vision quest is a powerful way to connect with your purpose during times of great transition. All ages, ability levels and backgrounds are welcome.
Expect playful daytime river canoeing and hiking and evening campfires to prepare for
the vision quest: A 48-hour solo vision quest after setting up base camp among the red-rock canyons.
