WHAT IS TRANSFORMATIVE TRAVEL?

WHAT IS TRANSFORMATIVE TRAVEL?

Soul’s Escapes embodies the notion that removing yourself from everyday life’s conditioning and traveling on curated retreats allows you to develop a deeper connection to the self, to feel emotionally empowered, to acquire new skills and knowledge while experiencing the wonders of the world.

With a conscious approach, travel can provide transformation at all levels: mental, physical, and spiritual. And by balancing these 3 elements, wellbeing can be achieved.

Essentially, transformative travel works as a catalyst to help individuals learn more about themselves and the world they live in, while at the same time promoting inner growth and wellbeing.

The science behind the mind-body-spirit link

Science has shown that there is a connection between how the mind and the body work together. Every time we have a thought, we set off a cascade of cellular reactions in our nervous system that affects our body in a positive or negative way.

Now more than ever the combination of mental, physical, and spiritual wellness is undeniably important. Mental health has finally gained worldwide attention due to a steep increase in mental issues affecting most of our modern societies. For decades, we’ve been told to focus on the physical factor of wellness: healthy eating, being fit, showing an attractive appearance. But as our lives become busy with work and challenges, it gets harder and harder to achieve also mental and spiritual wellness, which are key elements to attain a balanced life. Health is no longer just the absence of disease or symptoms; it becomes a state of overall wellbeing, where mind, body and soul are aligned. 

The ultimate wellness is no longer just a fit body, but the search for enhanced quality of life, personal growth, and balance between mind body and soul. Travel has often been considered a way to escape from daily life’s problems. But what if it could be a tool for growth and personal development to make one’s life better? 

It’s not a coincidence that when we travel we are in a state of happy flow, and we tend to be more receptive to learning and experiencing new things. When we leave our everyday environment, with all the distractions and the habits that come with it, we become more open to new situations that have the potential to inspire transformation within ourselves. We are free to explore old passions, new interests, reconnect with our life’s priorities, and change our perspective.

Travel: the new wellness frontier

Our mind, body & soul experiences

Our curated experiences and retreats are designed to promote wellbeing and transformation while immersed in stunning locations.

Luxury boutique hotels, healthy cuisine, and a range of physical activities are complemented by unique excursions, holistic therapies, workshops, and life coaching to provide healing, awaken the senses, and align mind, body, and soul. 

Our journeys are for those who are ready to explore themselves and not just the world around them.

We are for those wanting to reconnect to their inner voice, for those chasing spark in their life, for those willing to grow and embrace healing and change.

Or simply for those who feel the time has come to get out of their comfort zone.

We are for those who are ready to live, explore, and evolve.

We are not for everyone

We take personal transformation to the next level

Unlike most retreats that end upon returning home, our trips include our exclusive post-trip wellbeing program to support individuals with the knowledge and the tools to continue their journey towards personal transformation and wellbeing once home.

The core of our wellbeing program draws on positive psychology, NLP and holistic modalities, and it’s designed to help customers incorporate easy routines and mind rewirements into their daily lives.

Imagine going to a far-flung exotic destination and immersing yourself in activities to energize mind, body, and soul. You could give yourself time to detox, to learn new skills, or improve some areas of your life. And when you return home, build on the positive changes from the trip with a unique program, designed to bring wellbeing into your daily life with a conscious approach.  

We don’t exploit animals.

We don’t support any company engaging in animal labour, ivory sales, or other activity aimed at harming animals. You won’t ride abused elephants nor take selfies with drugged tigers with us.

Instead, we donate a percentage of our revenue to selected wildlife charity projects that operate in our destinations. We are passionate about this wonderful planet, and we are happy to give our contribution to make it a better place for all, animals included. 

We give back

We believe in the healing power of nature

Nature is the world’s greatest healer. It’s where we are once again complete and reborn. When was the last time you stopped to listen to the natural sounds of the world? From the sound of crickets at night, to the flowing of rivers, you will experience being immersed in the soothing sounds of nature throughout most of our journeys.
