From the moment you arrive in Jackson Hole and first lay eyes on the Tetons or watch a moose and her calf feeding on willows, the raw physical beauty of the landscape begins to recalibrate your sense of wonder and you begin to experience the awe and healing power of connecting with nature.
From its earliest inhabitants, the Greater Yellowstone Ecosystem has been a place where human beings have long been coming to commune with the Earth and experience a deeper connection with themselves. According to anthropologist ke Hultkrantz, who has extensively documented the Shoshone culture, these mountains are home to spirits that Shoshone individuals came to alone, without a weapon, for their vision quest. During a vision quest, the person remained on the mountain for at least two and perhaps as many as five days without food or water. While on the mountain, the person experienced dreams and acquired the full power of those dreams throughout the following year.
For many, the very act of being here provokes a spiritual awakening, but we have so much more to offer to amplify your spirituality, consciousness, and self-awareness, and spread the peace when you return home.

Jackson Hole offers many wonderful guides to the invisible realms of the heart, mind, and soul. From traditional counselors and coaches to quantum energy healers, mystics, and astrologists, there are a wide variety of practitioners with different ways to access these mysterious realms, but they all operate from the same core premises: to heal the Earth, humans must heal themselves; healing the body starts with healing the mind; and healing the mind starts with invigorating the spirit that lives within us all. This connection is being studied and confirmed in scientific communities and has been part of the human journey to a better life since the beginning of time. If you’re ready to elevate your experience here, these local guides inspired by the Tetons are here to help.

X marks the spot — places of inspiration
The entire Greater Yellowstone region is considered by many to be an area of enhanced energy that’s thought to provide inspiration and well-being to those around it. It’s a place that amplifies—or magnifies—whatever we bring to it, whether on a physical, mental, or spiritual level. While we have no officially designated vortices (like Sedona does), there are so many places to uplevel prayer or meditation to enhance mind-body healing, heal hurts from your past, or just ease stress and soothe anxiety.
Follow your feelings to the locations that resonate the most strongly with you. To experience the Tetons like a local, seek out less-trodden trails where you have a better chance of meditating in solitude. A few spots where you can’t go wrong are the Chapel of the Transfiguration in Grand Teton National Park, the top of Snow King Mountain, the top of the tram at Jackson Hole Mountain Resort, somewhere quiet on Shadow Mountain, or soaking in the soothing waters of Astoria or Granite Hot Springs.
