Spiritual Discovery

Violet expeditions are unique. While our other trips explore the world’s cardinal directions, guests on our Violet expeditions travel inward.

One of the primary purposes of travel is to achieve a greater understanding of oneself, and Violet expeditions are specifically tailored to that mission. On these trips, you may walk high-altitude trails carved by centuries of pilgrimage, sit in silence for days at a time in search of the peace that comes when the mind stops spinning, or share tea with monks that have renounced the modern world in favor of a different path.

Violet expeditions allow you to do deeply personal and individual work while at the same time being part of a group.  This is often one of the most rewarding aspects of these expeditions, as the sense of community found through participation in time-tested ritual and ceremony strengthens our own personal evolution.

Violet expeditions tend to be challenging and should not be taken lightly. Sore feet, an aching back, and mental frustration come hand in hand with this kind of experience, and these challenges often serve as a velvet rope that keeps casual travelers away from these excursions.  For true seekers, however, Violet expeditions offer great potential reward: the clarity necessary to catch a glimpse of what it truly means to be a human being. Come with us and discover who you really are.
