About Journeys of Discovery

 A Journey of Discovery is for the individual who is longing for deeper meaning in their life within a small group of kindred spirits on a private tour or retreat. 


An extraordinary travel adventure that speaks to their Soul. Whether it be at mystical sites in Peru, swimming with wild dolphins, sunsets in Santorini or meditating on a healing retreat in CostRica. Unique life-changing experiences within the context of personalized small group, specialty travel that takes you off the beaten path.

About Gayle Lawrence

How I went from  teeth to travel! After graduating from the University of Michigan in 1972 as a Dental Hygienist, I began my own Journey of Discovery. Feeling that life is a palette of possibilities I set off to explore Machu Picchu in Peru in 1995. This Ancient Sacred site changed my life and I felt called to bring others to this Mystical place.  Following my heart,  "Journeys of Discovery" became a reality in 1998.  


An ongoing student of personal and spiritual growth, my love of travel has taken me to powerfully transforming places around the world. I specialize in private tours and retreats with authors, healers, animal communicators, life coaches and other group leaders with a mind, body, spirit mindset. Nature is my Heart connection and encounters in the natural world with animals speaks deeply to my Spirit.
