Bhutan

7-8 DAY QUEST: THE KINGDOM OF HAPPINESS // Bhutan is the only country that values Gross National Happiness over Gross Domestic Product. Each year the King and the government contemplate how they can improve the happiness and wellbeing of their people, and how to protect their pristine natural landscapes.  What makes Bhutan magical - beyond the natural beauty - is the generosity you see in the eyes of the locals combined with the powerful spiritual energy that is cultivated by the monks and monasteries located throughout this tiny nation. On your Abroad Quest you will stay in beautiful accommodations and be guided by locals on how to experience the best Bhutan has to offer. This Quest includes mind-blowing cultural immersion including visits to mystical monasteries, opportunities to learn from leaders of the Bhutanese government, and experiences for deeper mindfulness, connection and team collaborations. Even the option of staying overnight in a monastery a few tourists will ever visit.

Bali

6 - 7 DAY QUEST: RENEWAL, PEACE & PURPOSE // To the uninitiated, Bali is a place for surfing, massages, and Indonesian cuisine. However, for those who have taken the time to immerse themselves in the local culture and perhaps live in Bali, they quickly realize that Bali is a magical destination with a local culture that is perhaps one of the most content and peaceful on the planet.

Our Abroad Quests start off in magical Ubud - the cultural heart of Bali - and a place for deep transformation and renewal. We will begin with cultivating a daily mindfulness practice, and experiencing the rituals, art and authentic essence of Balinese culture and wisdom. We will also integrate executive education sessions into these activities to support you in contemplating your next evolution of personal and professional impact.    

We will then make our way down to Uluwatu, home to Bali’s towering cliffs and famous surf breaks. It is here overlooking the Indian Ocean, that we will invite you to breathe in the fresh ocean air and crystallize your visions. By the end of this Quest, you will feel grounded, recharged, and inspired for your life missions ahead.


Iceland

7 DAY QUEST: RICELAND’S WEST FJORDS - A VAST REMOTE AREA OF STUNNING MOUNTAINS AND BEAUTIFUL FJORDS // The small island country of Iceland was discovered by Vikings in the 9th Century and the first settlers were from Norway and eventually other Nordic countries.  The country features mountains, glaciers, ice fields, hot springs, geysers, as well as active volcanoes. Truly a land of fire and ice!  Over a thousand years after its first settlement was formed, Iceland is still the most sparsely populated country in Europe, with over two-thirds of its nearly 400,000 population located in the southwestern part of the island.  Our Icelandic adventure begins in Reykjavik, the capital and largest city, where we meet before flying north to the more remote and rugged area of the WestfjordsOnce there, we are faced with towering mountains that race towards the many-fingered inlets that form the fjords.  Small towns or simply scattered farms and churches cling to the flat lands between the mountains and deep waters. Isafjordur, a picturesque town perched on one of the northernmost fjords, will be our base where we will conduct our executive education and other activities, intermingled with scenic drives into the majestic mountain ranges or to practice meditation techniques against a backdrop of an ancient ice field. Our adventure culminates with an excursion via private boat to an area inaccessible by road so that we can experience true remoteness and reflect on our lessons from the previous days.  It promises to be an awe-inspiring bonding experience for all participants!


Mt. Shasta

7 DAY QUEST: CALIFORNIA’S MT. SHASTA - LAND OF MYSTIC WONDERS // Located in Northern California, Mount Shasta is a potentially active volcano in the West Coast’s “Ring of Fire” volcanic mountain formations.  This beautiful wilderness areas teams with fragile mountain meadow ecosystems, waterfalls, springs, and hiking trails. It is also a land of legends and mystic beliefs ranging from the power of spiritual vortex and portal sites that connect to the energy of the sacred mountain, to rich Native American legends, and more modern tales of a hidden city beneath the mountain (Telos) inhabited by a race of advanced creatures (Lemurians) from a lost continent.  This rugged, yet peaceful, location is the perfect spot to disconnect from the distractions of modern communications and focus on strengthening individual and team connections.
