What lies behind us, and what lies before us are but tiny matters compared to what lies within us.
When we bring what is within us out into the world, miracles happen.”
– Ralph Waldo Emerson

Thank you for your interest and welcome to our online community. Our Travelers Within tribe is comprised of local and global leaders, mentors, practitioners, and seekers who all share in the common belief that we flourish and thrive when we hold ourselves accountable for living from our greatest virtues, exercise elevated self-awareness, and operate from a place of self-reliance and personal sovereignty. (Check out our latest article about these two vital human capabilities.)

During the course of our lives, we have each also come to realize that the “inner terrain” of our human psyches is interconnected with the “outer landscape” of our world. In other words, the perceived separation between what we individually experience and the experiences that exist beyond the bounds of our identity are really one unified continuum. In terms of practices, through exploring the depths within us we lead ourselves beyond ourselves and into a larger context of being, one in which our personal history and ego-narratives, nationality, culture, religion, and even our race are just a small aspect of who we are.

This understanding of our interconnected nature has never been more important to embrace than now. The “pandemic” and all the polarization and opposition arising from it is the last thing we need in our struggling world. We as a collective positive energy are committed to working together towards a more collaborative future in which everyone can live in a way that nurtures them and enables them to share in the remarkable gift of not just living, but being fully alive.

I have followed the work of Val Jon for nearly 30 years and have always been impressed by his ability to express complicated ideas in a way that is understood by people of all backgrounds and beliefs. I highly recommend any of his books or workshops. – John Thompson

I have known Val Jon and his work for quite a while and have worked deeply with him in person. This book is a summary of all that knowledge and experience. It is beautifully written and takes the reader on a journey of healing and transformation. Val Jon’s work had a profound shift for me in my work and my relationship to my son. Saying he saved my life is underestimating his power. This book is a major force for healing. – David A. Couper

Val Jon has been on a journey for a long time and has been providing a depth of wisdom, healings and teachings throughout his life. Travelers within is a culmination of his work…not for the beginner in a journey of inner healing, but a deep dive into the depths of our soul, aligning our 3D-5D realities and much more. His wisdom is invaluable, his heart expansive in teaching ourselves how to go deeper and grow wider…a must-read for anyone wanting to dig into themselves and tap into their infinite self. – Pilar Stella Ingargiola

Having known Val Jon for more then twenty years, I was inspired and moved by his spiritual nature. Our top experience was held in Machu Picchu, on a divine journey, described on his first book. As a writer he moves mountains by encouraging people to get out of their comfort zone and explore the unknown universe. His book is a powerful way to start your travel within. Enjoy it! – Alberto Golbert

To be perfectly honest, this is not an easy journey for the neophyte of self-exploration. But, we can learn so much signing on to this professionally guided, hand-holding, rough & tough look into ourselves. Most of us will have to experience the teaching again and again to break-through some of our personal hangups, self-sabotage traits & discover the ‘why’s’ of who we are…but to be the best we may be as individuals & discover empathy for why others may be who they are, it is well worth the hard work & travel within. Val Jon Farris makes the time spent not only FUN! & life-changing, but intellectually stimulating. – Cynthia E.

I haven’t read this book yet, but I traveled to another country to participate in a personal growth workshop, led by Val Jon (the author). Val Jon spent his life working to find his own self, and shares that information is a wonderful, caring and kind way. I’ve attended dozens of personal growth and spiritual seminars, and I can honestly say Val Jon’s work is completely different and a fresh approach. I am sure his book will be as fabulous as he is! – Brenda F.
