* The vision Quest, Initiation and Rites of Passage **

Leon is one of life’s good people that entered my life in 1998. He was my first Native American one to one. His friendship is one of my life’s best gifts. His father and uncle came to Italy when I was 24. At that time I was experiencing my first memory loss.

Dad Rufus came and did his ceremony. What I experienced is hard to put into words, it was a mixture of trance and out of body experience (OBE). Expansion of Counsciousness. In other words, his sacred chanting and drumming helped my lost soul to come home. When my mother was told by doctors that my memory would be back in twenty years. Well, well…

With courtesy of Leon, and Doug Bouey (author of Rufus first autobiography), a few original photographs from Leon’s album are included in the storybook.
