E-magine Journeys is a socially conscious travel company founded on the principles of ecological imagination and spiritual reciprocity. (For our definition of these concepts, please click on the MORE buttons above). We offer a variety of tours to Central American and European countries with the intent of fostering MUTLI-CULTURAL AWARENESS, HUMAN CONNECTION and SOCIAL CHANGE. Our mission is to provide each of our tour participants with a more meaningful and joyful travel experience by focusing on TRAVEL FOR CHANGE and DESTINATIONS WITH PURPOSE.
We are really excited about our upcoming 2015 tours! (Please see our 2015 Tour Highlights section below). We have undergone a few changes in the last few months that I would like to share. First of all, Noemi Menendez has decided to step back from her E-magine Journeys responsibilities and focus on her fulltime job. I am sad about this, but I always want the very best for her. She will continue to stay involved with the November 2015 Guatemala tour, because as I told her and sincerely believe, Guatemala is NOT Guatemala without Noemi leading the journey!
I have the good fortune of working with three great people who are currently helping with the plans, marketing and logistics for our 2015 tours. Rodney Rodr who lives in Amsterdam is co-planning our Tuscany journey. Rodney and his partner, Christel, stayed at Borgo di Gello in Tuscany last year and contacted me about the possibility of E-magine Journeys partnering with the Novanta folks, believing that their eco-activism and E-magine Journeys’ socially conscious vision would be a good fit! Right he was! Phil Wojtalewicz, an attorney in the Walnut Creek California area, has graciously agreed to help me organize the pilgrimage on the El Camino de Santiago de Compostela. Phil has already created some great marketing materials for the pilgrimage and he and I are working on some public presentations about the Camino, which we will give to several spiritual groups here in the Bay Area. Phil plans on walking the Camino with our group and because he will be celebrating a very special birthday this year, it is the perfect time for him to go! My longtime friend and sister-in-spirit, Barbara Haden, is doing some marketing for E-magine Journeys on the East Coast. Barbara was with me when I walked the Camino for the first time. So, as you can see, we are definitely growing and expanding! Please consider joining us on one of our tours. TRAVEL FOR CHANGE!
The journey on the Camino de Santiago de Compostela is going to be amazing! We have a new guide this year, Sarah Hoskin Clymer and we are VERY excited about her leading the group. We will be posting her bio soon, along with the complete itinerary for the pilgrimage.
