For me, travel is a time to slow down, to reflect, and usually to read a good book or two. In a recent holiday to the Croatian coast, I found myself with a few extra hours to spare as I sailed towards my destination via ferry boat. In my bag I had plenty to explore – books, magazines, downloaded podcasts. I decided I was in the mood for a light read and chose a magazine.

I dove into my Yoga Journal and came across an article entitled Quantum Leap – A Guide to Navigating True Transformation. Not exactly a light read, but it nonetheless caught my eye. I find that travel is often a starting point for transformation or sometimes an opportunity to recognize that we’ve already begun a transformation. Further, as we are often more open-minded and relaxed during travel it allows us to get curious about our process and sit with it, instead of moving away from the discomfort it may bring.

What I took most from the articles was that change will happen, no matter how much we try to resist (it can even be positive!), and during this time we need to be curious and aware about what’s going on while caring for ourselves throughout.
