Peace Eco-Tours

"BE IN JOY! Dare to laugh, smile, and be happy. Take a trip. Face your fears. Swim with the dolphins. Jump off a cliff. Ride in a red convertible. Drink kava-kava with friends. Eat sushi and ice-cream. Laugh with a roommate. Walk through the village. Wear a fragrant lei. Take a drive in the country. See the Valley of the Kings. Enter the Peace Garden. Walk a labyrinth. Talk to a parrot. Sit in community and in joy. Bring Heaven to Earth!" Linda Kay Burk

Sacred Sites around the world hold great energy and power of ancient wisdom from stories of the past. Many of these sites are connected to First Nations, and these indigenous teachings hold keys for humanity on how to wake up and find the peace that we are so desperately seeking. Peace is also created when we get to know unfamiliar peoples and their cultural practices, and can accept and understand them as they are. Come join us on a Peace Eco-Tour to celebrate the diversity and unity of life the Earth!

Eco-Tour General Information

Stacks Image 6557
Nature itself is peaceful, complex, beautiful and uplifting to the spirit. We have much to learn from Mother Earth - both the science of her ecological systems and the energy of her Ley lines and magnetic vortexes around the planet.

Many of these places are considered to be sacred sites by various human cultures. These places can open the heart to inspiration and to a flow of love and light. Walking through a light-filled canyon, or a gleaming-wet stalactite-rich cave, can give the breath pause and make the spirit soar. 

A Peace Eco-Tour to a sacred site, or simply a place of extraordinary beauty, opens all kinds of possibilities for people to become one with the wisdom, wonder, and beauty of these natural and cultural elements.

Our Peace Eco-Tour is an integration of peace classes, diverse workshops, nature hikes, art & music performances, cultural sites, community dialogue and discussion, and community service projects.

In this unique vacation, you will experience connections to local culture, nature, and the healing spirit within. Ecotourism activities include: hiking to waterfalls, horseback riding, visiting archeological sites, and observing wildlife. At sacred sites, such as a Mayan Temple, we include guided meditations and metaphysical connections with these indigenous peoples and their ancient knowledge. Peace activities can include: role playing, skits, drawing, music, art, journaling, research, group discussions, World Cafés, Open Space Technology, labyrinth walks, and creating and telling your own stories.

Classes weave concepts of peace relating to its practicality, wisdom, spirit, principles, tools, history, and realization. Activities are indoors and outdoors, with community members, traveler groups, and on your own. Spend part of your vacation working side by side with host community residents in a community service project and/or building a Peace Trail between designated places of peace.

Come join us for a 6-day to 21-day Peace Eco-Tour vacation in Belize, Madagascar, South Africa, Costa Rica, USA, and other places around the World!
