Who takes spiritual awakening vacations?

The stereotype of the spiritual awakening seeker-traveler is the unencumbered college student who’s trying to “find himself.” But what about the rest of us?

Spiritual Person centered journeys

While this type of trip might be more common for people who practice a specific religion, it can also be centered around people you’ve deeply admired, or feel a strong connection to, or who have had a profound impact on your life.

Where might you find these places?

The Holy Land, Ethiopia, India, Turkey, or Italy.

Location-centered journeys

There are many places on this planet that are thought of as fonts of spirituality.

Where would you find these places?

Rishikesh, India; Sedona, AZ; Angkor Wat, Cambodia; Mt. Shasta, CA; The Blue Mosque, Istanbul, Turkey; Uluru-Kata Tjuta National Park (Ayers Rock), Austrália; Rio de Janeiro, Brazil, or Machu Picchu in Peru.

Activity-centered journeys

Maybe you’ve been practicing yoga for several years and want to expand your spiritual and practical horizons as a Yogi.

Where would you find these kinds of adventures?

In yoga centers around the globe; Taizé in Burgundy, France; Nepal; Thailand; Bali, Indonesia; Cambodia; South Korea; India; meditation centers in the US and globally; anywhere where trusted organizations operate and organize volunteer opportunities.

The journey-is-the-destination spiritual awakening journeys

The poet Gary Snyder said, “Walking is the great adventure, the first meditation, a practice of heartiness and soul primary to humankind.”

Where are the best places in the world to find a journey/destination?

El Camino de Santiago, Spain; Char Dham, India; Kumano Ancient Trail, Japan; Machu Picchu, Peru.

Why take a spiritual awakening journey
