Why work together

Through collaboration, we can improve the experience of our travelers

Growing Wellness Tourism Industry

Between 2015-2017, the wellness tourism industry grew by 6.5% (twice that of regular tourism) and is expected to grow by 7.5% by 2022. More people are interested in adding mind, body, soul experiences into their travels. These wellness travelers spend 53% more than average travelers. (1)

Impact of Mindfulness and Coaching

Plenty of studies confirm the positive impact that practicing mindfulness (2) and being coached (3) can have on people, from reducing stress, improving focus and self-reliance, to greater ease at managing emotions and achieving goals. They improve life satisfaction and help people find joy, purpose, and meaning.

Improved Traveler Satisfaction

By helping your travelers get clear on their expectations, cultivate a positive and growth mindset and truly transform during their travels, we improve their experience. They come back ecstatic about their transformations and keen to share that with others. We gain glowing reviews, reputability, and more clients.

Do you want those outcomes for your travelers and business?

HOW WE HELP YOUR TRAVELERS OR EXPATS

Services can be offered before, during or after travels

People who spend a lot of time traveling or relocate to a foreign country(4) for work, to volunteer or to study often experience: 

  • Exhaustion, stress or anxiety about their new cultural context.
  • Loneliness due to distance from their social network. They struggle to create new bonds or a community.
  • Sense of loss and nostalgia for their homeland.
  • Confusion about identity, their belief systems and their role in society.
  • Frustration or confusion about new cultural customs.
Travelers often experience these same symptoms when they go back home after being overseas for extended periods of time.

PERSONALIZED SESSIONS FOR YOUR TRAVELERS

This service is perfect for organizations that work with students, volunteers, travelers or have employees that regularly travel or relocate. We can help make sure they feel fulfilled and happy with their overseas experience. 

Replacing volunteers or employees who leave overseas placements early can be costly. Having students who give up on their study abroad programs can be bad for your reputation. Making sure the travelers in your care are finding what they need from their trips abroad can be tough. 

LET US HELP YOU WITH THAT. 

RETREATS OR TRAININGS FOR YOUR ORGANIZATION

Offer the international students, volunteers, workers or travelers you work with a space to explore themselves and the adventure they’re on.

Through workshops, day retreats, trainings or weekend getaways we can provide them a space and guidance for inner exploration, connecting with others, and becoming more mindful people and travelers.
