JODI ZOPH

I started Mindful Journeys Travel in the hopes of expanding the lives of others. I have found travel to be the most amazing gift that you can give yourself or someone else. I realized travel wasn’t about checking destinations off of a list or adding stamps to a passport. The experience was really about being present in the moment where I was, understanding the culture, having real connections with the local people and realizing life is about perspective rather than circumstance.

JESS KIRCHOFF

To me, travel is about the simple connection of a smile, feeling at home in a foreign place, being present in the moments of complete awe and pushing yourself to new limits to inspire both growth and change. Travel inspires you to begin to see your world through a different lens. Each year I travel for 4-5 months scouting out the best locations, building relationships with hotels and tour companies, and experiencing the most talked about experiences and adventures to pass them along to you.

As an avid traveler myself, I have traveled around the globe extensively for the last 10 years and I understand the logistics and details that go into coordinating a successful trip. My extensive destination knowledge and use of the most current technology effectively assist me in looking after you from the moment you depart for your destination until the moment you return safely home. I look forward to being by your side every step of the way – because we are on the journey together.

Giving Back

Mahatma Gandhi is quoted as saying, “The best way to find yourself is to lose yourself in the service of others.” Giving back is a foundation of Mindful Journeys. Wherever we go we give back. The tenet of most religions and philosophies includes a belief in giving back to the world. It is an opportunity to help others. We strongly believe any gesture big or small can benefit.
