3 Pillars of Conscious Travel
As wisdom traditions emphasize, the path must start with oneself. The conscious traveler embarks on an inner and outer journey. You travel to awaken, to understand, to open, to come home to who you truly are. This aspect of the path involves personal inquiry, meditation, intention setting, and gratitude. Ask yourself: What am I searching for? How can I awaken to the beauty, magic, and wonder of life on my journey? How can I bring awareness and self inquiry into my trip?
When traveling, how can you cultivate deep connections with people you meet along the way? How can you honor cultures and traditions that have existed before you? Are you able to consume consciously? How can you show respect to local cultures and add value throughout your journey?
“Whole” refers to ‘other than’ – the birds, trees, rivers, all that we see and do not see in our natural environment. As we begin to align with self and other, the environment follows. How can you lower your carbon footprint and show up as a steward to the land? What does it look like to live harmoniously with the planet? In what ways can you travel more sustainably?
