Quest 79 is a community organisation with the aim of creating and supporting inspirational projects that connect people and communities to enhance wellbeing and possibility.
The Quest 79 foundation project invites people to take a ‘Quest’ for themselves – a journey of discovery - that is connected in some way to the number 79, the atomic number of gold. When we step out of our ‘normal’ and leave our known, comfortable zone, it seems we discover something new and special. We find a shiny part within us that has become hidden or lost through the challenges and busy-ness of life: what we are calling ‘Inner Gold’. Through this shift within, we often inspire those around us and spread positive waves from our personal level, to our local communities and then around the world, expanding positivity and possibility in a ripple effect. Examples of inspirational quests are listed at https://www.quest79.com/quest-79-inspirational-challenges-list/ The early ‘back-story’ to the project began with Karen Darke's Paralympic Journey and a unique relationship with the number 79.
On the 7/9 (7th September), we are creating a very special day around Quest 79 and our purpose of enhancing ‘Inner Gold’. The idea is inspired by Rachel Earing, Founder of Live4Energy, whose Quest was to give 79 Healings in 79 Hours starting on the 79th Day of the year (20th March 2021). We are now working to bring together 79 ‘Inner Gold Guides’: that is magical people committed to enhancing positive energy around the world. Specifically, we would love to have 79 different countries involved, and invite people to join specific sessions led by these individuals. All the ‘Inner Gold Guides’ will have different methods, modalities and ways of working, from meditation to other natural healing practices and talks. The variety will enhance the appeal for more people to take part and help us raise money for charities that matter to each person taking part on that day.
We are raising funds here to help us create the structure and support necessary to continue the work of Quest 79. All of those involved have given voluntary time and energy, but there are unavoidable expenses for tech and some professional support to run a successful event.
