Beware of Volunteer Vacations!

Beware of Volunteer Vacations. That is, unless, you’re prepared to have your eyes, mind and heart opened wide. Almost to bursting.

Last year, I longed to ignite my inner light. What could I do to make that happen? The answer came like a flash. Within an hour, I investigated the web for volunteer vacations and signed up for an adventure that took me to Morocco, and so, so much more (like my just released book: exploring morocco; discovering ourselves. That's ALL about the so, so much more).

Cross-Cultural Solutions just posted a story about my so, so much more experiences with my students, my teachers, my touchstones of my trip. I share it below. Beware. You WILL want to go on a volunteer vacation. With Cross-Cultural Solutions. Prepared to be ignited? 

Opening Eyes

One morning, Dana Whitaker woke up and, before getting out of bed, decided she would journey alone to Morocco. Here's a story about the people she met that changed her perspective on cultural differences and shared humanity.
“I don’t know how I am going to handle this for a month.”
That was Dana Whitaker’s first thought when she arrived at the airport in Morocco.
