Praise for Choosing a Vibrant Life

I have read your beautiful book cover to cover and have shared some bits with my students at Pacific Rim College. I felt like we were sitting down over a cup of tea. I can’t tell you how graced I felt to be in your world through the words on the page. Deep gratitude from me to you. I would delight in having you speak to my class (Toxicity of Foods). Given the heavy subject matter, you would be a ray of sunshine!

– Maureen Fontaine, Certified Darkfield Microscopist, Health & Wellness Consultant, Spiritual Intuitive & Ontological Life Coach, B. Ed, Master Herbalist, Instructor – Pacific Rim College, Victoria, BC

Cori has written a beautiful masterpiece. This book is a deep treasure chest of tips and tricks to live life feeling more alive and aware of your own thoughts and choices. We all need inspiration at one time or another throughout our lives and books like this are the key that so many of us are seeking in times when personal growth and changes are needed. I recommend it to anyone of any age who is ready to take back the power that is deep within each of us. The power that allows us to fully shine as our unique selves. Enjoy!

– K. Allan

Cori, your beautiful book has really inspired me to make conscious choices about every aspect of life. I was so hungry for the information because I knew it had to be good. I want what you’ve got – your strength, your vitality and your clear, clean, determination to be the best you can be!

I especially liked your Ceremony to become an Elder. I’m going to encourage the women in the desert where I spend my winters to do the same. I can hardly wait!

The timing for your book is perfect for me as I endeavour to become visible in expressing my own truth!  Imagine how many people you will inspire with this awesome book! The list of friends I want to give this book to is endless so thank you, Cori, for sharing your wisdom in such a delightful way!

Vision Quest by Cori Ellingson

Vision Quest
A Spiritual Awakening
by Cori Ellingson

Vision Quest invites you on a long awaited journey of connection… connection with nature… with self… with Source. In relating her first-hand experience of the ancient practice of the Vision Quest, Cori Ellingson brings to life the trials and tribulations of her solitary trip into nature and the insight and guidance she discovers on her amazing spiritual quest. From the mysteries of the preparation steps, the synchronicity of meeting the guide and the synthesis unfolding in the days of silence on the mountain, Cori magically weaves a spell-binding tale of her odyssey of discovery and gently unfolds a way of seeing the world with new eyes.

Cori Ellingson has been a student on the Shamanic path since the early 1990s, studying the mysterious lives of the ancient Hawaiian people, the Incas of Peru and the North American Plains Native people. This deep calling began to make more sense in late 2008 when a family secret revealed Cree roots through her Maternal Grandmother.


As with every fine narrative, the journey through “Vision Quest” leaves you wanting more. Cori Ellingson captures the imagination and the heart with this honest expose about one’s relationship with self. Bravely insightful and compelling, Cori shares candid details about her personal doubts and fears as she grapples with that well-known demon,  the “monkey-mind”. I loved every minute of it. A must read for anyone contemplating a Vision Quest.

– Sam Harwood, Kimmapii Spirit Energies, Pincher Creek, AB

Cori, thank you so much for writing this fabulous book about your Vision Quest! I see now why the mosquito is so prominently displayed on the cover. I couldn’t put it down and read it in two days–the same amount of time that you were on your quest. I loved all the connections you made and thought it was fascinating and inspiring. The ending was so very interesting. A new life path, to be sure.

– Elaine Gale, ATD Facilitator, Los Angeles, CA

Cori, Thanks so much for my copy of Vision Quest! I’ve just finished it and I feel as though I was there with you! I’m really looking forward to reading the sequel, “On Golden Pond”! Hugs, peace & love.

Sounds of the Ancients
Chants of Hawaii & North America
Cori Ellingson with Dragonfly

As well as being an enjoyable listening experiences, chanting tones using ancient languages can reconstruct our neurology, creating shifts in our abilities, perceptions, and physiology. ENJOY!

“At a chanting workshop on Vancouver Island facilitated by Cori, the final day became a magical event when an abundance of dragonflies kept landing gently on our bare hands and legs as we chanted and drummed near a wildlife sanctuary. They are truly ancient beings, thought to be here for over 180 million years. Their keynote is The Power of Light. “Let there be light” is the divine prompting to use creative imagination as a force within our lives. This is part of what dragonflies and damselflies teach us and why we chose the name for our group.”
