Wellness on a Mission, Dominican Republic

Wouldn’t it be nice to have a vacation that provides a mental, physical and spiritual break to recoup in an enriching atmosphere? Have you ever wanted to participate in a life-changing mission trip, but didn’t have the opportunity or know exactly how to go about attending?

Ambassador Travel in Evansville, IN and Studio 3 in Henderson, KY are partnering Wellnesstogether to take a group of like-minded people to GBI Crossroads in the Dominican Republic, for an all-emcompassing retreat! This amazing opportunity is coming up June 2nd-9th of 2018, called Wellness on a Mission; focusing on holistic wellness, while supporting GBI Crossroads, a non-profit organization providing care and empowering the lives of the communities they serve. http://www.gbicrossroads.org

Erin McKee, director of Studio 3 and developer of Yoga Alternative LLC, participated with GBI Crossroads in the summer of 2017 on a mission trip with a group of High School students. From this experience, it lead to a deep calling in her soul to bring more people to this healing place and to create a program that is one of a kind. We will be staying on the large secluded property in the lush mountains, overlooking the iconic Parque Nacional Isabel De Torres, or Inspiration Mountain, and the beautiful coastline. Some notable amenities include: hot showers, netted sleeping quarters, a yoga studio and a relaxing pool with waterfall, that we will take full advantage of throughout the week. Erin can attest that the area is safe and the owners of the property are very well respected among the communities where we will work.Wellness 2

Our trip will include three days of mission work, combined with wellness studies in the following areas: emotional release; focusing on inner questions and Yoga with Erin McKee, TRX and mental clarity with trainer Karen Evans, and spiritual growth with Wellness Coach, Kim Jackson. Our concierge travel agent, Kristie has planned some exciting excursions for us to enjoy also! We will visit the beautiful beaches of Cabarete, Sosua and Puerto Plata, including an excursion to 27 Waterfalls, and opportunities for shopping. We will have three delicious meals per day provided by GBI Crossroads, and plan to eat lunch and dinner out on our full day of excursions, experiencing the vacation hot-spot cuisine.

Our mission focus will be assisting a Haitian majority community, who are descendants of slaves who were smuggled into the D.R. during the sugar plantation era, and today are still seen as less than human to many of the Dominican locals. Most do not have simple citizen rights, and are forced to live in subhuman-like conditions without any government support. Prostitution, drugs, or searching through the dump for re-sale items are sadly the future to many Haitian children, however with your help, we can teach them their worth, helping them to learn new trades and break the chain of bondage that they were born into.Wellness on a mission2

We can teach them through workshops funded with the cost of this trip. We will also help fund ongoing medical clinics, feeding & housing 5 families that live on the GBI Crossroads farm, sponsoring 15 children to go to school year round and a monthly clothing drive. Depending on how many participants we have, we also hope to raise enough funding to providing two cement floors for families. The concrete floors are extremely important because of parasites that children often contract from laying on dirt floors. So, the more loving hearts we have joining this trip, the bigger difference we can make for the community!

If this sounds like something you want to be a part of please contact us for further details. We are focusing on mostly women ages 18 and older, however we will accept couples as well as 15 years and up with a parent/guardian. We are looking forward to making a big impact on the people we are there to help, as well as on ourselves!
