Help get this Quest started in your community.
Supporting helps build the critical mass for change. Critical mass means that we are building awareness, that we can be effective in taking action. Supporting a Quest, in any area, is becoming – starting to become – Visionary citizen.

Quests on Self
There are 7 Quests. Each Quest has tools to Explore, Reflect and take action. Select one that interests you and get started!
 
Who Am I?
We act at a level so much lower than we are capable. We are more than we conceive. Who should we become? What we can become capable of?
 
What Should I Do With My Life?
What can we do with our time, money, skills, talents? What is the unique gift we can offer the world?
 
Visionary Citizen
Visionary citizen means becoming the person for whom visionary society is possible. Is that possible?
 
Suffering
Why is there so much suffering in the world? Is suffering is inevitable?
Can suffering be used for self-transformation? Is it necessary for spiritual growth? Can we turn suffering into a song?


 
Loneliness
Are we essentially alone in the world? Why is it that social activity makes us more isolated?
What is the difference between loneliness and solitude? Can true solitude bring loneliness to an end?
 
Travel (and Experience)
Are experiences more than a distraction? Can travel be more than the search for experience and enjoyment? How can we stop contributing to mass tourism? Can we do something significant on our travels?

What should we do with our time, money, skills, talents? How can we maintain our integrity in a world where power, success and money are valued above all else?
Exploring a Quest on your own is good, but doing it together with friends and community members is better! Facilitating Quests is easy and no one needs to be an expert. The Quest Path is intuitive. Just take the steps that interest you. To begin, decide on the Gathering type.
Quest Meeting
Hold a meeting open to Visionary society members and the public, with the purpose of following any Quest Path, reaching the heart of a basic social or personal mystery. See more.
Public Action
A great insight matters little unless and until we bring it into the world. Public Action is bringing the insights of a Quest to the public. It works by engagement – engaging the public, helpfully but with clarity, in matters of significance. See more.
