our history

Ethos Journeys are an invitation

an opening to all the beautiful knowledge that awaits us and makes us whole

The idea for Ethos Journeys emerged after many years of building both GoPhilanthropic Foundation and GoPhilanthropic Travel– organizations devoted to our shared responsibility in creating a more just world. Those journeys were incredibly life changing for both our participants and for us as guides. Listening and learning from courageous change-makers and small NGOs forced us to acknowledge the individual opportunities we each have to take action in the face of challenges. It also highlighted the incredible strength that resides within communities. We witnessed first hand what happens when people come together to explore, learn about and care for the greater whole.

Ethos Journeys is an effort to expand even further from these important principles. While we specifically focused on how we could be of support to others in past travels, Ethos Journeys explores how we can also live in support and synchronicity with life as a whole.

Active and engaged participation, authentic involvement and contribution of oneself remain central values. Ethos Journeys builds upon these meaningful principles yet spans beyond the singular focus of philanthropy. We offer access to experiences, visionaries and luminaries that help us activate our fullest potential while acknowledging our belonging to each other and a greater, extended existence. Offering a wide range of disciplines that stimulate both mind and heart, we encourage a deeper understanding, communication and participation with Life.
