About Rainbow Serpent Adventures
Illuminating the soul through travel
Rainbow Serpent Adventures tours are up close and personal, off the beaten track, and high on local culture. Each trip is designed with an understanding and respect for the ancestor spirits and the connection between land, animals, plants, rocks, sky, and people. For this reason, we are often under the naked sky. Each trip provides travelers opportunities to connect on a deep, holistic level to themselves, others, and all of creation.
Our Spiritual Tours
We start by offering tours to sacred destinations. Then we create a container for safety for you to Just Be. When you leave your every day cares behind, get out of your head, open your heart, and allow the energy of the land and the group to support you, strange things can happen.
Perhaps it’s a purging of old, no longer wanted or needed stuff. Maybe you get wildly creative. You could fill with laughter, singing, or gratitude. It’s not uncommon to cry… a lot. And then along the way, without you ever really doing a lot, healing happens.
We don’t do a lot of “work” on tour. The work is just to be. Get out of your own way. Feel your feelings. Hear what your inner self has been saying. Experience Flow. You will be presented with everything you need. You just have to allow yourself to have it.
But if it gets a little too tough and you need a bit of support, no worries. That’s what Laura Giles is here for. We always go with the flow. Sometimes Laura does a lot – like facilitating dream groups, leading group past life regressions, or helping an individual work through something. Sometimes she’s just one of the gang holding your back. Every journey is supported and lived in the Now.
Our Spiritual Intensives
After doing tours for many years, Laura noticed that people got a huge high from the trip, then it slowly tapered off. Within about a year, they needed another fix. She realized that the experiential tours were lacking the mental piece to pull it all together to create permanent change. In 2017, Laura added spiritual intensives and created an online learning community at Virtual Walden Pond to help people gain the skills to make that high permanent.
Our spiritual intensives are residential boot camps designed to put you in a pressure cooker of mind, body, emotion, and spirit education and experience. They are created to lovingly urge you into a cocoon state to rest, metamorphose, and then blossom. Each one has a different focus. There is time for deep introspection, social bonding, laughter, and escape and exploration.
You’ll likely leave tired, then need some time to recover before the real work of rebuilding your life begins. However, you will have lots more focus, energy, and enthusiasm to move towards your dreams.
Where We Go
In two words – thin places. These are places where it’s easier to access the spirit world, places of power and transformation. Laura has found that the sites that are most transformative for most people most of the time lie on ley lines and vortices. The most powerful ones tend to be on the Rainbow and Plumed Serpent lines. Our tours focus on sacred destinations found on these lines.
Although the ley lines and vortices have incredible juice, we don’t limit ourselves to those sites. Spirit is everywhere. The magic is within. So no matter where we are, it’s going to be intense!
Laura Giles‘ Story
In 1998, I set out for Cairo, Egypt on what would become my first sacred travel journey. Although most of us begin with the intention of meeting the divine either within ourselves or somewhere “out there,” this particular journey was not intentional. I didn’t even know what spiritual travel was. Yet unmistakable magic happened every day. It just snuck up on me and touched off a passion for sacred travel that has never waned.
Spiritual travel disrupts my complacency, gently (or sometimes insistently) nudges me towards growth, and enlightens my soul. Different places have different energy so the exploration never ends. When you have something that inspiring happen, you just want to share it with others. So, I have been hosting tours since 1999.
If you are looking for a sterile, pristine, comfortable journey, this is not it. You have to get out of your comfort zone to grow. Expect challenges. This will change you. It will rattle you. And when you shake off the dust and things settle, you will see the opportunity to open yourself up to a new version of you. Will you take it?
