Are you feeling the call to adventure?

Transformational Travel – Santa Fe!



Join us for the Art and Soul Tour ~ Santa Fe!

Join travel writer, author and photographer Lynn O’Rourke Hayes and author and writing coach Susan Pohlman as we explore uniquely inspiring Santa Fe, New Mexico.
With the Springtime spirit of rebirth, come share in this magical journey of heart and soul. Disconnect with the busyness of life and re-connect with yourself as we enjoy the art and alleyways of this historic city, rich in diverse cultures and surrounded by the expansive natural beauty of New Mexico.

What is transformational travel?

Transformational travel is the willingness to embrace the power of adventure as a vehicle to self understanding. When we venture beyond the boundaries of our everyday lives and slip out of our cultural constraints, we find ourselves opening to possibility, imagining a life of greater meaning, and seeing ourselves in a new light.

This unforgettable retreat will combine this thrill of adventure, soaking in local tradition and feasting on authentic Southwestern food and wines, with focused self-exploration workshops and quiet journaling time. Tapping into the same restorative creative energies that has made this region a mecca for artists, we will learn to listen to the voice of the artist within for guidance and possible new directions for a richer, fuller life.

Our home for the retreat will be this refurbished 200-year-old farmhouse, Santa Fe's oldest inn.

A few testimonials:
A soul enriching, transformational retreat! I loved every minute of this experience. Your thoughtful attention to detail and flexibility made the trip all I could have hoped for and more!

~~Sally K., MA

Susan and Lynn are remarkable ladies, both in their area of expertise of writing and photography, respectfully, as well as strong, centered, inspirational women. They know how to lead a group of individuals who do not know each other and infuse a level of comfort for all participants to be genuine and respectful of the transformational process. They allowed the experience to be personal for each person in a sincere and truthful manner. For me it was it was the chance to remember what my priorities are by allowing quiet reflection as well as interactive cultural experiences and a lot of laughter.

Transformational Travel… this is the perfect way to describe this retreat. I felt so taken care of but, at the same time, on my own journey. I could share (in a safe environment) if I wanted to or listen and learn either by what others had to say or as we were guided by Susan and Lynn in journaling and the art of photography. I am the “Hero” of my own story. How I wish every woman could be as fortunate as I was to be guided by these two very peaceful and knowledgeable women. If you are even considering this gift for yourself, SIGN UP.
I will forever hold in my heart how this trip/experience has positively influenced my life!
~~Nancy M. Hall., MD
One of the things that I enjoyed most was the camaraderie of the women I met. We started out as strangers and quickly became friends sharing stories – some funny, some sad – but all inspirational. In sharing our stories, it bonded us. I left feeling more connected as a human being and more confident to pursue my creative side.

Hope to see you in Santa Fe!
