Quest is a Journey into the Heart of Earth-Based Leadership

It is for YOU. You wild ones, you quick-witted ones, you sacred activists, you who dare to dream of a world where soul thrives equally in the arts and in the boardroom. It is for you who longs to trust the noble truths that rise up from under, ready to set the world on fire with passion and purpose.

Quest is Now Closed.

Quest is for you Leaders and Change-Agents:

You who know that the way you stand here, matters - especially when when no one is watching; you who remembers that knowledge is only wisdom if it is lived, and magic is as real as our willingness to be shaped by it.

QUEST is a program designed to launch you off into the magical and mysterious terrain of earth-based leadership.

It responds to three central desires; to be fully co-creative in our lives, to commune deeply with the rhythms of Gaia, and to cultivate trust in our own lived wisdom so that we can lead from a place of belonging, connection, and instinct into a thriving future for all. 

What is Earth-Based Leadership?

Earth Based Leadership is a way of moving in the world that deeply recognizes the interconnectedness of all of life. It maintains the fundamental knowing that everything is intelligent and alive, and by apprenticing to the rhythms of the earth, sun and moon, we re-member our own deeply instinctual wisdom. It offers us the bone-deep knowing of our ultimate place, our gifts and our dreams that are about much more than our own individual lives. In a world of complexity and rapid change, with the environment pushed to extremes, and our species increasing interconnectedness, we're called to model a new way of living and leading. Earth-Based Leadership is about responding to that call.

You are the one we've been waiting for.

QUEST is part pilgrimage to soul, and part leadership training.

It is designed to be intelligent, pragmatic, inspiring, and clear. It is designed to offer you the tools you need to take your place as an Earth-Based Leader. As you deepen into the experience, you will;


Cultivate intimacy and connectedness with the rhythms of the Earth, Sun and Moon through tools, maps, guides and practices grounded in Elemental Magic, Lunar Wisdom, Solar Seasonal Rhythms, Archetypal Thinking and Leading, and Nature Experiences and Practices.  

Walk with practical tools and applications for taking inspired, earth-based leadership into your offerings in a way that all your participants can understand - regardless of the demographic.

Gain greater courage, confidence, and trust in your creativity and your voice - no more playing small

Experience a sense of belonging and support and know (once and for all) you are not in it alone

Unveil hidden depths - in yourself and in the world

Free stuck energy in apprenticeship to nature’s cycles

Restore your vitality

Cultivate your ability to perceive possibility and think outside the box

Empower creative action in your life and your work - we are the ones we’ve been waiting for

Begin to trust your instinct, lean into your gifts and LEAD effectively, creatively, and in rhythm with the greater whole.


HOW? QUEST is not a workshop, but an invitation into an experience. 

When you register for QUEST, you register for a year of living in rhythm in community with our global Earth Leaders. We believe the way in to real, embodied, felt wisdom is to grow it from root to flower. Here's how it works:

The practices and teachings are organized into beautiful, clear, downloadable manuals that act as your course guidebooks. 

You will receive an exclusive invitation the the QUEST | Magic Course Platform and Community Council, along with an opening ceremony suggestion/practice and the course guidebooks for:

Ceremony & Ritual

Elemental Magic

Solar Cycle

Lunar Cycle

Each guidebook contains the following sections:


In Rhythm - These sections are packed with all you need to know on the rhythms of the earth, sun, and moon. They contain original content written clearly with depth for the beginner and the expert. I pull from depth and developmental psychology, ecology, and pan-cultural wisdom traditions for this work.

My Lived Wisdom - This section is where you get to live into your own experience. There are practices, questions, wild activities, recipes, visualizations and more that all seek to catalyze your own lived experience. Remember, There is a difference between knowing something and knowing how it feels.

Rise Up Rooted - These sections take what you’ve learned on earth rhythms and ground it into applicable ways to bring that wisdom and your own experience into leadership - useful for your own curriculum design, women’s circles and retreats, inspired yoga class themes, archetypal coaching or for personal practice.

The QUEST | Magic Course Platform + Community Council responds to the epidemic of isolation and separation in our lives.

Easy login with Facebook and Linkedin

A mobile app

Quest is Now Closed.

QUEST is effective because it is designed to deepen you through four gateways of learning:

“Traditionally the maturity of the self develops through three stages—from ego to social self, and from social self to metaphysical self. In this conception of the process nature—our home, our immediate environment, where we belong as children—is largely ignored. I therefore tentatively introduce the concept of an ecological self. We may be in, of and for nature from our very beginning. Society and human relations are important, but our self is richer in its constitutive relations. These relations are not only relations we have with humans and the human community, but with the larger community of all living beings.”
— Joanna Macy

Ceremony & Ritual

Ceremonies can be thought of as conversations or dialogues with Mystery in that they involve both acting and receiving, speaking and listening. Our time in ceremony creates an essential bridge between the worlds of the known and the unknown, in the sacred space of ‘betwixt and between’.

  • What is ceremony and ritual?
  • When and how would I create one for myself and for others?
  • Setting the space
  • Intention & Design
  • Creating a threshold
  • Building an altar
  • Making offerings
  • Opening perception
  • Simple and effective ceremonies to offer as a leader
  • Nature-based ceremonies

Elemental Wisdom & Guidance

The five main elements of space, air, fire, water, and earth make up all of life here on planet earth. Each element has a different archetypal essence and that essence expresses itself in three primary ways - initiating, sustaining, and dissolving energies. Together, the elements create life and when we learn from them, we experience a felt sense of dynamism, harmony and vitality in our inner and outer world. We explore the elemental map in the physical and subtle world.

  • The elements as a map for wholeness
  • Working with the energetics of the "field"
  • Group facilitation and the elements
  • Evoking the elements
  • The triplicities (initiate, sustain, and surrender)
  • Teaching/offering/leading from the elements
  • How the elements interact and create thresholds for growth
  • The elements and the seasons

Solar Cycle - The Wheel of the Year

The solar cycle is also our seasonal cycle. This rhythm has been (and still is) marked by seasonal thresholds that mark the magic at play in all things during that particular time. We'll explore the solar cycle both literally in seasonal observation, and symbolically by exploring nature and soul-based practices that pertain to each seasonal threshold. 

  • Learn the eight primary seasonal thresholds
  • Observe in an experiential way
  • Discover practices, crafts, and rituals for each season
  • Explore the archetypal solar force in your life
  • Carry forward the teachings of the solar cycle into leadership

Lunar Cycle & Creativity

We live in a fast-paced world of complexity that operates in overdrive. The lunar cycle is a fantastic mirror for our own creative journeys - when to GO and when to SURRENDER and turn inward again for new insight. We'll explore the lunar cycle in its entirety both physically, symbolically, and as a map for the creative force. We'll explore:

  • The 8 lunar phases
  • The archetypal qualities of each phase and its primary tasks as related to creativity
  • The lunar cycle as a complete creative process
  • Self identify where on the cycle we get stuck or hang out. 
  • Develop creative sustainability as mirrored to us by the lunar cycle
  • Learn to participate fully with the whole cycle in our own work as leaders
  • Walk with specific practices to apprentice to the parts of the cycle we are less familiar with
I get it. You are a leader and you’re busy. You’re not so good at online stuff. I’m the same way, and have designed QUEST to account for that. All you have to do is set aside just TWO HOURS each month;. time for you, as a leader, to replenish, and re-inspire in a hands-on, exciting way.

Want to go deep? I draw on my years as a facilitator and educator, and from my extensive training in depth and developmental psychology, emerging leadership, traditional wisdom, archetypal astrology, mythology and ecology.

And - so important to know that this is the final time Quest will be open for registration for all of 2018. Now is your chance! Let’s do this!

It's worth asking...

but something else is in the works!


What Others are Saying:

Quest was more than I ever could have imagined. Laura’s offering is so potent! She is rich, inspiring and such a powerful force of earth wisdom. She over delivers every-single-thing and shares coursework that I’ll use for lifetimes to come. I feel truly honored and am so grateful to have had this experience with this scholar and wise woman, and with all of the participants on this course. I feel so supported and seen. I’ve risen to another level, awoken to another layer of untamed genius, and feel even more aligned with my purpose and power. I recommend this course for anyone hearing the call, even if it’s almost undetectable, and to those looking to strengthen and creatively refine their intuitive leadership on this holy planet.
— Tanya Markul, creator of &
In the few short months I’ve been participating in Quest, I can already feel profound change happening. Aligning with the rhythms of nature makes me feel deeply connected in a way I’ve never experienced before. This magical course is providing scaffolding for me to grow into the activist the world needs me to be. Thank you Laura!
— Annie, Bend Oregon
I’ve always wanted to be and effective leader who inspires and empowers others, but felt there was a missing element in the traditional business management approach. What I was really looking for, was a way to connect deeply with myself, with others, and with the earth herself, to live and lead from a deeper place in a way that would benefit the whole, not just increase a bottom line or get more tasks accomplished. QUEST has become a vital resource that I continually draw from to re-oreint myself to what matters most; to learn how to live in rhythm with the solar seasons and in harmony with the cycles of the moon, find inspiration for my yoga classes and blog articles, and learn practical tools to live a more integrated and soulful life. This program provides access to ancient earth wisdom and enlivening teachings that are so needed in this soul-parched day and age. I recommend it for anyone who wants to reclaim their innate power to heal and create change, on a personal, cultural and global level.
— Chantal Russell, Bowen Island, BC Studio Owner, Entrepreneur, Writer
Laura’s teachings speak right into my heart. With authenticity, humility and beauty she shares her deepest calling, to help all of us re-connect to our own rhythm, the rhythm of the Earth.

The material included in Quest is like a dream, so extensive and I know I will come back to it again and again for years to come.

Going on this Quest for a whole year means I’m giving myself time to really dig in deep. It also means I get to share this journey with others and I’m getting to know amazing co-questers. It is truly the best gift to myself.
