Huddled in a tent atop of Holy Mount Salkantay in the Andean Mountains of Peru, I clutched my sleeping bag to my chin, terrified by the nine inches of snow burying our temporary camp. I’d climbed these heights in pursuit of my completed mesa, a portable altar of special healing stones that would help me realize my advancement as a Shamanic practitioner. But a storm had made all passage up or down impossible. We were trapped at 15,000 feet...

Insight from Your Fellow Seekers:
'The seeker archetype is looking for a thing, a feeling, a knowing, an experience called truth. This is not truth with a lowercase t mind you, but Truth with a capital T. Concrete physical facts or realities that satisfy scientists and engineers are a bore for the seeker.
The answers she is looking for are not concerned with tangible things. The seeker wants to know what she cannot touch with the five senses, and this desire ultimately leads her beyond this earthly plane. The continual wandering to find an undefined thing is motivating for those with the seeker archetype.
A lot of times someone with the seeker archetype isn’t even sure what the truth is that she seeking. She does know that she is after something, but asking her to commit to what that something is can prove treacherous. Typically the seeker is certain that the search has something to do with learning about the way life, the world, and maybe even the cosmos is. She may refuse to get more specific than that for fear of pigeonholing her quest. The seeker realizes that by framing the question, she is already determining the answer.'- *https://www.wildgratitude.com/seeker-archetype-wanderer/
'Seekers are Explorers of the soul. They are always on the lookout for something that will raise consciousness, whether in the realm of the spiritual, medical or psychological. They embrace anything, in fact, that can teach them something about themselves, whether it is meditation, yoga, new forms of therapy or following the teachings of church leaders, fitness coaches or gurus.'- https://www.archetypes.com/explorer-family-seeker/
'Diving further into the unknown, the Seeker travels through her darkness. She confronts that which she most fears and continues through it, adding to a whole new perspective to compliment the one they witnessed in others. The Seeker confronts its self.'-https://fractalenlightenment.com/34367/life/the-seeker-archetype-the-path-of-the-brave-wanderer
