Enlightened Journeys

These small group experiences (minimum 12, maximum 50 people) bring together visionaries, thought-leaders, transformation agents and change makers for deep conversations, introspection, personal and professional growth and tons of laughter as we discover alternate ways to approach challenges.

Along the way, we will meet local business and government leaders who are making positive ripples, we’ll create a plan to assist a segment of the local community, we’ll step out of our comfort zones and enjoy unique experiences, and we’ll do things we’ve never done before.  We’ll also learn about ourselves and we’ll evolve our skills, perspective, leadership, communication, and emotional intelligence throughout the journey. Enlightened Journeys are so much more than a vacation or a retreat.

 

Enlightened Journeys are designed to transform your life.

    They are meant to test you and they will.

    You’ll explore what triggers you and how you respond to triggers.
  • check
    You’ll discover how uncomfortable — yet important — it is not to be attached to a specific outcome.
  • check
    You’ll learn how to connect with people through kindness and other heartfelt emotions and actions.
  • check
    You’ll be inspired. You’ll get mad. You’ll be sad. You’ll be overwhelmed. And you will be supported along the way.
  • check
    You’ll also be forever transformed and although it may not seem like it at the time, you will be okay.
  • check
    You’ll commit to doing something. You WILL do something… and it likely won’t be the something you immediately come up with.

These Enlightened Journeys have been created by people who have gone on enlightened journeys of self-discovery themselves. They’ve realized that when you want to change the world, you must start inside yourself then expand your ripples of impact outwards.
Many people are reluctant to start from this place though, so we’ve created a program that starts with an outside project — the community project we’ll collaborate on, co-create and deliver when we step off the plane and into our Enlightened Journey (it’s our sneaky distraction for those who believe they need one.)

Enlightened Journeys start 6 months prior to the trip with self-understanding and alignment and it continues as we collaborate and co-create a solution with a community at the destination we will travel to. Our personal growth and professional development expand with each exercise and challenge throughout the Journey and beyond.

This journey is a little different from the other Enlightened Journey’s we’re planning because of the remote location and the temperature (average highs in July are around 8C (46F).
Rather than staying in one location, we’ll have a few bases in our 5 days together.
Take a flight to Winnipeg, MB (YWG) and we’ll travel together from there.
