Travel with an open mind & heart

Our Ethno (Nature * Culture) Travels require open eyes, mind and heart - because you will not go on a luxury all inclusive holiday ... you will go on a journey to your Inner Self while exploring different ways of living and creating culture!

You will be invited to:

* step our of your comfort zone and go into the unknown

*simplify and minimalize to just YOU and your bag (and your travel buddies and their bags)

*get rid of your assumptions, clishes etc.

*empty and open up your eyes, mind and heart for new insights, experiences, knowledge, magic

*adapt and adjust, explore and experience new ways of being to expand in your own personality

*reflect your habits, expressions, believes

*deepen the connection with your Inner Self and explore your true Essence and unique potential

To realize:

* how wonderful, powerful you are and what your true message/purpose is (if you not already know it - otherwise you can adjust/deepen it)

* that there's is no wrong or right behavior, custom - it is just our conditioning on how to see and move on this earth

* that we are told that our different cultural traditions are separating us, dividing us into groups

* that when we are willing to come back to our true Nature and open up our heart thought we can come together as one and we realize we are all same. There is nothing which should divide us and even if we feel we are different we can choose to meet each other in respect and love!

This is when the most precious connections arise...even if they last for only few seconds ... there is something deep touching and they are stored within us as memories forever.

Travelling in different counties and continents brings us to very different ways of living, cultural habits and beliefs but somehow you will realize when you look closely enough, like mentioned above, we are the same, we all speak one same language, the language of the heart, if we are willing and open to let it speak.

Then we will learn from each other, inspire and support each other, live in co-operation and co-creation, harmony, peace and happiness, rather than competition, separation and conflict.

Further the ancient wisdom within indigenous communities can bring us back and remind us of our true Essence, the very essence of our Being, the meaning and deep connection to Mother Nature and its healing potential for us, so that we can understand how to heal ourself. And this is what is so much needed in our modern world today.

To go back to our roots (our root chakra, where we get nourished and grow)

- back to the very deep roots of the Trees of Mother Nature to be held and stable and able to move through all mud like the Lotus to finally move up and shine or grow tall and spread our leaves like the trees.

We can learn so much from Mother Nature. And this is actually also the ancient intention and essential purpose of Yoga.

That is why we choose to combine Ethnology, Yoga and intuitive Art as the perfect match to raise the awareness into more harmony with each other and Mother Nature.
