Life is either a daring adventure or nothing. To keep our faces toward change and behave like free spirits in the presence of fate is strength undefeatable.
Helen Keller, Author and Speaker
Travel can be one of the most rewarding forms of introspection.
– Lawrence Durrell, Expatriate British Poet
Travel changes you. It removes you from the distractions of everyday life and allows you to reflect on your life as you absorb the beauty, history, culture, and sites around you. It is a perfect time to heal, connect, learn, or move through a life transition.
In addition to our small group cultural tours, we have themed travel tours. Leading experts in a variety of disciplines will be part of our travel experience. On a themed tour, there could be two group discussions/sessions on a topic. Plus each participant will receive a private consultation with our expert. Our first themed tour was in the fall of 2018 with an Exploring Midlife, Learning to Love the Life You Have Now in the Beautiful Austrian Alps Tour with Poet and therapist Dr. Heather Browne.
I will also be announcing an amazing tour to Salzburg and Vienna with Timi Workman, a writer, and artist who will guide you in making an incredible travel journal that will really be a piece of art and keepsake for years to come! I am also speaking with a very talented fine artist who is going to be putting something together for us to enjoy together in Paris, France. These tours will be announced soon!
Coming in 2020 we will be introducing therapeutic tours. Have you experienced trauma in your life? Have you lost a parent, a spouse, a job or a relationship with a child? Has your trust been betrayed? Are you facing an empty nest where your loss has caught you off guard? Then you may want to attend one of our therapeutic tours with a licensed therapist or coach to help you on your healing journey. The focus on these tours will be learning self-care, building community and putting together a plan for your healing going forward into the future while seeing and experiencing the beauty, food and cultural sites of a beautiful country.
