109 design and host retreats (and other experiences) that inspire personal and collective transformation, ensuring participants have a new sense of purpose and connectedness with their lives and the world around them. Purpose On every 109 retreat we partner with local grassroots organizations that are positively impacting their communities and environments. Volunteering with them gives us the opportunity to put our hands in the soil, break bread together, and truly gain perspective and clarity of our place in the world. Travel Mahatma Gandhi described travel as ‘The Language of Peace.’ To experience different realities fosters compassion, awareness, and understanding of one another and yourself. At 109 we deeply believe that travel, if designed with intention and in collaboration with the local community, can be a force for good. Mindfulness Though mindfulness sessions on our retreats, we offer real and tangible tools to help individuals improve their way of living, their relationship with themselves and therefore their relationship with their surroundings. At 109 we've learned that you can only give as much love to the world as you have for yourself.
