We believe travel is a vehicle for personal and collective transformation. When we travel, we have opportunities to learn and grow in profound ways. We craft each journey with this wisdom, and offer tools and practices to create meaningful travel experiences.
Our team is a perfect blend of seasoned travel experts in logistics and planning, along with decades of experience in contemplative practices to cultivate personal transformation. We honor both the inner and outer journey of our travelers. Each journey is designed through our unique 4 part process as well as attention to the embodiment of 5 key practices that make any journey meaningful.
We offer fixed date departures locally, nationally, and internationally as well as custom craft journeys that speak directly to the calling of our travel tribe. Each journey is consciously-designed journeys, for couples, small groups and individuals seeking meaningful travel experiences.
