It's not a single word, but vision quest seems apropos:

A traditional Native American vision quest consists of a person spending one to four days and nights secluded in nature. This provides time for deep communion with the fundamental forces and spiritual energies of creation and self-identity. During this time of intense spiritual communication a person can receive profound insight into themselves and the world. This insight, typically in the form of a dream of Vision, relates directly to their purpose and destiny in life.Wikipedia

Reflection. Meditation. Contemplate...

Of course, you could cheat by hyphenating two words. You ought to consider your own context but this is a vexing quest for such specific word. Good luck!
