EXPEDITIONS

MSA's Expeditions are life-changing, small-group adventures held in the world's most iconic and transformational destinations. Ranging from 7—14 days, our Expeditions are built around Joseph Campbell's concept of 'The Hero's Journey' and combine physical adventures such as hiking, rafting, and kayaking with authentic cultural experiences, group discussions, and personal reflection. Along the way, you will find yourself disconnecting from the stresses of life, connecting with new people, places, ideas, and perspectives, and reconnecting with nature and yourself! 

Every MSA Expedition includes our 3-month pre-trip Call to Adventure and 1-month post-trip Return of the Hero group coaching process. Before you depart for your Expedition, you'll join your fellow travelers and your MSA Program Leader on a series of phone or Skype calls where you'll get to 'meet' one another and begin the process of personal exploration and discovery. After the trip, our Journey continues as you and your new friends enjoy 2 follow-up calls over the following month as you support one another in taking action towards the vision you created on your Adventure! This unique model helps ensure that your Adventure is truly a transformational one!
