The healing power of travel

Transformational travel is not new, nor is it a trend.  But it does bear some explanation. 

The Transformational Travel Council defines transformational travel as “intentionally traveling to stretch, learn and grow into new ways of being and engaging with the world.”  The council goes on to say: “We believe meaningful travel starts from the inside out – and that is what we’re here to shift. Too often our travel reinforces our existing boundaries, worldviews, and practices, rather than stretch and evolve them. What we’re bringing to travel, for you, for us, our communities, and our planet is an experience that integrates mindset, intentionality, reflection, empathy, and joy.” 

Travel gives us the opportunity for self-reflection and self-growth. When we travel, we are removed from our familiar and routine lives. We become immersed in a new culture with different values and perspectives, away from expectations and responsibility. This shifts us out of our comfort zone. We are open to change, learning, and connection. Transformative travel can also teach us how to be better global citizens and to provide us with the clarity and confidence to thrive in our lives. It helps us be conscious about how we engage with our world both at home and when travelling abroad.   

So how do you get started on a transformational travel journey?  We’ve invited three experts from the JourneyWoman Women’s Travel Directory to join us and share their top tips and insider secrets on our webinar on March 12, 2024, at 2 pm EST.
