New Jersey, (PressExposure) February 18, 2009 -- Spirit Journeysâ latest addition to their calendar is a gay travel adventure rafting through the Grand Canyon. Titled âGoing Deepâ, this adventure starts and ends in Las Vegas. In between, there are eight days of rafting 280 miles of the Colorado River. The intent of this journey is to experience the river and the canyon on a deeper level than an ordinary vacation.
The awe inspiring surroundings will further the adventure into your Self. Being on the Colorado River at the bottom of the Grand Canyon has a way of making us humans very humble; in the presence of such majesty, major life shifts can happen. Meditation, Heart Circles and group movement rituals will be used to help open your heart and deepen your experience of this incredible place. The more you open to what the Canyon and River offer, the more alive you will become; you can reawaken to your true nature of laughter, playfulness and a quest for adventure. The intention is to actively engage the Canyon and the River so that you come to know them on a more intimate level. Our raft stops several times each day to hike, to explore side canyons, to swim in favorite swimming holes or to stand in the power of waterfalls.
