The Wilderness Guides Council is a non-profit, membership organization dedicated to the concept that wilderness is the root source of our spiritual values, inspiration and healing. We are a world-wide community that uses a pan-cultural model for rites-of-passage work, including the ceremony variously called the vision quest, wilderness quest, vision fast and other names. While each of our members operates their business independently, we are each committed to the same mission and ethics. We are incorporated in the United States and our members can be found around the world.
Whether you are a guide looking for other guides to share experiences and hold community with, or are an individual seeking a guide for wilderness initiation, we hope you will take the time to explore this web site and it's resources.
Current members who offer guide services are listed in the Guide Directory with links to their email addresses and websites. WGC guides would love to hear from you.
Website news: We are currenty under contract for the development of a new website, which will be built in Drupal, promising increased user-friendliness and many new features. The guide directory will be largely improved upon, with an online schedule capable of listing all member trips by date and with individual program descriptions as well as featuring a separate bio tab. Member profiles will be much more accessible and the visibility of the guide listings will increase dramatically. We are even dreaming of a world wide map where current member programs could show up in real time… working toward the big vision that one day, the WGC website may serve as a worldwide directory of guides.
