My first experience with spiritual travel took me by surprise. It was 1990 and my marriage had hit a rough patch. My husband and I decided to take a Caribbean Cruise in order to have some romantic time away. At the time, I was a stay-at-home mom with three children age five and under. The more traditional part of me was active in my Lutheran church, teaching Sunday School, ringing handbells and participating in Bible study. Simultaneously, my closely guarded mystical side was practicing yoga, reading Barbara Hand Clow and exploring the healing qualities of whole foods, homeopathics and herbal remedies.
