Awakening Journeys Debuts Travel Adventures of Self-Discovery




Traveling to new destinations and learning about different cultures ignites the imagination and engages the senses in exotic ways, encouraging a fresh understanding of our place in the world and our connection with others. With the recent creation of Awakening Journeys, friends and readers of Natural Awakenings Phoenix can enjoy several opportunities for self-discovery and adventure, beginning in fall 2012.

Travel excursions to Peru and China, offered in a special 10-day tour format, will be the first destinations available. Sheryl Miller, a traveler from St. Petersburg, Florida, who recently toured China says, "This is a fabulous journey-an unforgettable, once-in-a-lifetime experience. China will fill up your senses and expand your heart." Likewise, visitors to Peru's many historic sites, such as Machu Picchu and the Inca ruins surrounding Lake Titicaca, speak of remarkable vistas and extraordinary memories.

Travelers with Awakening Journeys will find themselves immersed in the varied cultures and traditions of each destination country. These one-of-a-kind trips are intended to inspire and enrich participants through purposeful travel, camaraderie and diverse activities.

Local group rates are available, and local nonprofit organizations can participate and use the trip as a fundraiser. For groups and local fundraisers email PhoenixEditor@NaturalAZ.com for details.
