Get to know us

We provide opportunities for spiritual growth and personal transformation by visiting some of the world's most important sacred sites. We are committed to small groups, carefully crafted itineraries, and passionate tour leaders ready to share their wisdom and help you deepen your spiritual life.

Now is the time to set forth on an adventure of self-discovery at one of the world's most powerful sacred sites. Where will your journey take you?

Sacred Earth Journeys is dedicated to providing a more meaningful and rewarding travel experience, specializing in sacred sites tours and spiritual travel. Our journeys combine respect and reverence for ancient wisdom traditions with the joy of exploring some of the most beautiful landscapes in all the world.

Since 2003 we have been offering spiritual journeys around the world, custom sacred tours, and retreats to countries as diverse as Peru, Mexico, India, Ireland, England, Bali, Greece, Turkey, Bhutan, and more. We work closely with our passionate tour leaders to create sacred travel programs that will further your own inner journey while guiding you through the mythic heart of each country we visit. Our itineraries are infused with personal contacts and resources that draw on our years of experience and local knowledge. On many of our journeys we have the honour of meeting local wisdom keepers, traditional healers, shamans, musicians, artists, authors, or other local experts to learn from their immense wisdom and knowledge. Over the years our feedback from participants confirms that these are indeed life-changing spiritual adventures.

Join us on one of our spiritual journeys as we explore ancient civilizations and cultures; myths and legends; oral traditions and literature; vibrant folklore; sacred art, architecture, and music; and enjoy delicious authentic foods. Through guided energy work, wisdom teachings, healing practices, creative endeavours, and daily discussions you will learn as much about yourself as you do about the country and culture you visit.

Our blog post, Sacred Pilgrimage & The Essence of Spiritual Travel, explores the sacred travel experience, and includes excerpts from The Art of Pilgrimage by Phil Cousineau, which beautifully capture the essence of a Sacred Journey.
