MAoL presents Wonder and Wander; Meaningful Travel Adventures presents

Art and Trail banner

Traveling allows you to move away from the distractions of daily life, and to see through new eyes as you take in your new surroundings. It can be a catalyst to going within and expand your perspective.

Traveling with MAoL can provide this catalyst through various activities for slowing down:  painting, writing, thinking, and sharing deep conversation. These activities, done mindfully, give you an opening into your own spirit.

We will be guided to places that are off the main path so we can avoid crowds and see the sights from a different perspective.

What is WONDER and WANDER?

Wonder icon

ART/WONDER: For those who choose Wonder, you have opportunities to draw, paint or journal. All skill levels are welcome. 

Wander icon

TRAIL/WANDER: Each day you can choose to take one of the many amazing local hikes through the red rocks surrounding Kanab. 

WONDER

When you remove yourself from your common environment, and especially your routines, inspiration follows.

This is a slow paced trip, not just go, go, go. That is why we don't fill every moment and we spend time at different locations, and choose to sometimes hike, or stay still and write, or paint or enjoy the moment.

Being in a observing mode such as painting slows us down and allows us to immerse into a very deep part of us and the nature around us. And then add the component of the awe of nature. For those interested in painting, there will be help from Christi and occasionally from a special guest artists.

WANDER

When you immerse yourself in nature, it's more than a physical experience of a hike; it can be a deepening spiritual experience. Wander the towering majestic cliffs made of red Navajo sandstone, through the robust range of over 900 different plants, or stick your toes in the cool waters along the way.

Moderate to intense hiking opportunities. Take one of the many amazing local hikes through the red rocks surrounding Kanab. Kanab is surrounded by a variety of western geologic scenery ranging from coral pink cliffs and sand dunes, volcanic craters and lava flows to deep canyons, majestic mountains and plains.

Wandering off the beaten path in some of the most beautiful environs can slow you down and touch that deep, inner part of yourself.

Kanab: A Stunningly Magical Locale

Kanab area

The town of Kanab is surrounded by a variety of western geologic scenery ranging from coral pink cliffs and sand dunes, volcanic craters and lava flows that created deep canyons, majestic mountains, and plains. The natural beauty and consistently good weather of the Kanab, Utah area has made it a popular place to visit. Kanab is a scenic tourist town with a friendly western spirit hosting the “Old West” quality of life. It is also the inspiration for the scenery in the animation movie “Cars”.

Come discover the Sweet Life within yourself!

The best weather in this area is generally October, but as we know, weather varies.

Suggested Daily Activities

One of the reasons for traveling in a small group is the ability to adjust our adventures to the group's interests.

To start our day we gather for breakfast, setting our intentions, purposely envisioning our day.

Although we may have different interests, we travel together, exploring our individual paths.

Then each evening we join together to share our insights of the day, perhaps at dinner or around the campfire.

Throughout the week, Christi will offer times to come together for those who want to dive deeper into the wisdom that governs her life.

There will be opportunities to paint. Not a confident painter? There will be several opportunities to be guided in painting techniques. And you will always have support.
