Who VysionQuest is for
The VysionQuest is for entrepreneurs, professionals, artists (and parents too!) who have achieved some success but have lost themselves along the way. Now you are facing some kind of major life transition. You can feel life flying by and you don't want to waste another year - let alone DAY - living an inauthentic life. You don't want to get to the end of your life and have to admit that fear and confusion held you back from doing what you REALLY wanted to do. If this is you, you're probably struggling with burnout, anxiety, low confidence and lack of clarity.
Ready to experience who you really are?
 Most of us take paths in our lives that weren't meant for us. (It's not our fault... it's the effect of decades of schooling and society that trained us away from our own natural sense of inspiration and purpose.)

We stay on those wrong paths for years or decades, long after we know they won't make us happy or fulfilled, because we're too scared to leave. We get frozen by fear.

But change isn't a matter of courage. It's a matter of self-understanding. Most people go to the grave without getting it, and miss out on the main point of their life.

What's different about the VysionQuest process is how it systematically takes you to that level of clarity and inspiration.

Imagine getting so much understanding about who you are and what you're here to do that you can't NOT do it.

  • Are you struggling with indecision, second guessing yourself all the time, even if you've already accomplished a lot in your life?

  • Are you concerned that you haven't found your true path in life?
  • Do you sometimes wake up at 3:00 a.m. feeling the temporariness of your life... and worry if you've got your priorities right?
  • Are you feeling disillusioned with the concept of "success" and wonder if you're somehow missing out on the deeper magic and meaning in life?
  • Do you feel an inner frustration that you CAN'T ignore anymore... Like something's GOT TO CHANGE?

Hi, I'm Rick Cowley
When I was 21 years old I got leukemia. Turned out to be one of the best things that ever happened to me for me.

You get really clear about what's most important, and inspired to just effing DO IT, when you're facing your mortality.

Since then I knew that I wanted to guide people through an awakening experience like I had, but the question was how to do that without 'putting a gun to your head' through an illness or accident?
Well, fortunately for my soul and my sanity, and maybe yours too, I found a way.

This totally unique process got improved and refined and perfected during 50+ retreats with input from hundreds of high performing entrepreneurs and professionals.

Thanks to COVID I've moved from Bali to Australia. When I got here one of my "grads" took me to see a stunning property on the Sunny Coast... I booked it for 5 nights... and the VysionQuest Australia Retreats were launched.

The two most important days in a human's life are the day he is born and the day he discovers why.
- Unknown
The VysionQuest is how you will finally discover why.
This VQ program is a powerful proven sequence of guided meditations and writing exercises to help you find answers to the most important questions about your life, your purpose and your dreams. The retreat, with daily "Silent Sunrise Sessions", works to interrupt the habitual patterns in your life so you can change your life's trajectory.

Many of my students carry their completed VysionQuest workbook around with them wherever they go. It's like a guide map for your best life.
  • Make peace with the past
  • Feel grateful for your life
  • Learn to listen to your inner knowing
  • Accept, love and appreciate yourself and your sensitivity
  • Discover what's important to you
  • Get your life's aim right
  • Reveal your life's work
  • Craft a crystal clear written vision to guide your next phase
The VysionQuest course is not about filling you up with ideas, but rather making a space for you to hear your own truth.

Most people, no matter how "successful", say that this program gave them more clarity about who they are and what they are here to do than ever before... AND gave them the inspiration to just effing DO IT.

I've never done yoga before. Will the retreat be okay for me?
Yes, all classes are suitable for beginners. This is a great way to get some guidance and experience with yoga and maybe even kickstart a new habit.
I’ve never done a self development program before. Is this program right for me?
VysionQuest was developed to help people at any level of personal or professional development find clarity and inspiration for the next phase of life.

Whether you're just out of college or the owner of a million dollar company - Whether you've done several self or professional development programs or nothing at all - Whether you consider yourself to be super spiritual not, VysionQuest is skillfully designed to meet you exactly where you're at, to open your mind to what is possible, or remind you of who you are and what you're really here to do.

I’ve done a lot of spiritual and personal development work over the years. What is so different about VysionQuest? How can it help me?
We have had people of all walks of life find success and fulfillment through the VysionQuest. From actors and celebrities to small business owners and large business owners to accountants and dancers and coaches and yogis, DJs, chefs, marketing execs....

The bottom line is - if you're open and ready for it, you will find what you're looking for.

What makes VysionQuest different is the content, the questions, and especially the SEQUENCE they are presented in.

Each writing exercise poses a different question to help you look at your deepest desires, hopes, dreams -- and anything holding you back that you might be unaware of -- skillfully placed in a particular order that supports you to open up to different aspects of yourself, deeper and deeper as the program progresses. That's why it's a process. You can't get to these inner answers from a book or a TED Talk or just journaling. This is a deep process that carefully uncovers the essence of YOU.

No one is telling you what to think or feel. The questions are designed for YOU TO BE THE CAPTAIN of this ship and reveal what's really inside your subconscious mind through WRITING, putting PEN TO PAPER, and asking you questions you otherwise probably would never ask yourself, and therefore never really know about yourself.

I'm not good at meditating. Will VysionQuest work for me?

I've had hundreds of people successfully do my programs who had no prior meditation experience, or feel like they struggle with meditation. That just doesn't matter.

That's part of the power of the program... how it takes you to deep stillness and lets you hear the quiet voice of your Inner Knowing.

All you have to do is show up, follow the steps, and trust the process!
