The concept of Transformational Travel is the idea that travel can be a catalyst and venue for the expansion of consciousness and our understanding of ourselves and the world around us. With the right experiences, the right mindset, and an open heart and mind the traveler can literally become transformed through experiences that do not fit within the boundaries of existing assumptions, expectations, worldviews or cultural paradigms.
