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. My name is Val Jon Farris and I’m your Travelers Within Society, (TWS) host and guide. Our tribe is a collective of seekers and mentors, individuals and organizations dedicated to elevating human consciousness towards its highest and most virtuous expressions. We accomplish this by “leading ourselves” into our own higher capabilities first and then assisting others in doing the same.

To summarize who we are as a tribe and what our ethos is . . . consider that just as student and master are one, there is no separation between of our inner and outer reality. In other words, our true nature is much vaster than our individual self might lead us to believe. As a tribe, we have come to realize that the “inner terrain” of our human psyche is intrinsically interconnected with the “outer landscape” of the world and universe as a whole. Through migrating beyond our individual self, all the knowledge and capability residing within the cosmos becomes available to us. (Emerson points to the reality of this vast capability in his quote above.)

We invite you to join us . . . all that is required from you is to become an online member, share our events and intentions with others, and have fun while doing so! (FYI: We keep our member info private and confidential and limit correspondence to infrequent blogs, event announcements, and live Zoom gatherings.) Blessings to you from everyone in our TWS tribe!


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.
