ABOUT ANA ESTRADA
“A Sacred place of pilgrimage is a unique experiment. It is a place where currents are flowing from places towards the soul, where the whole atmosphere is charged. From sacred places of pilgrimage, people have traveled to sublime heights, have become enlightened, and have seen visions of the divine. Such holy places have become charged areas due to centuries of events happening there. Such a place, if you do nothing else but throw open your sails, your journey will begin. This was the primary purpose and use for the sacred place experiment.” Osho
I believe that traveling to sacred sites is not just a privilege for some, but a spiritual calling of our souls to consciously connect with our deep authentic selves and the world around us.
Transformative Destinations offers a way to engage with exotic cultures and unfamiliar traditions while questioning everything we think of as acceptable or normal. In this way, we naturally expand our worldview and honor all that we perceive of as being different from our small separate selves and begin to understand that in truth…
We all come from the same Source and have the same needs and desires, the same right to be happy and thrive.
We return to our homes refreshed, facing our daily lives with a more expansive perspective that celebrates our human differences along with our similarities, contemplating all the treasures we have received along the way!
