Sparrow Hart, founder of Circles of Air and Stone, began exploring nature and wilderness in 1971 with a 5-month solo pilgrimage through the Cascades and Canadian Rockies, and he undertook his first vision quest in 1980. Over the last 38 years he has led over 180 small-group vision quests and undertaken over 35 quests of his own. He’s the author of Letters to the River: A Guide to a Dream Worth Living and The Vision Quest, A Guide’s Training Manual. In addition, he’s considered a leader in the field of men’s awareness and emotional growth, having created the Mythic Warrior Training and the Men’s Wisdom Council -- two men’s programs that have run for over 25 years – and he’s a frequent workshop leader in the United States and Mexico.
Sparrow believes that living your dreams and coming into your own path and authenticity can’t happen until the wounds of childhood are healed. Those wounds must be addressed and dealt with before our souls can flower and flourish, and we can begin to move forward. Over 3-1/2 decades Sparrow has become an authority in this important and necessary work, developing process and practices that “join heaven and earth” – that bring the uplifting insights of the transcendent spiritual traditions to bear on the nitty-gritty conditions of the lives we have to lead today.
Sparrow Hart has worked in and explored the wildernesses and the wilderness of the human soul. He’s led over one-hundred eighty 11-day vision quests and undertaken over 35 quests of his own. He’s met bears, mountain lions, rattlesnakes and, most importantly, himself.
Letters to the River places the struggles and crises we currently face — personal, ecological, and spiritual — within the context of a mythic and heroic journey. In doing so, it forms a bridge between the left side and the right — the practical, daily life we can neither ignore or avoid, and the enchanted, shimmering world reported by sages and shamans throughout the millennia,..
