Spotlight On: Switzerland!
Switzerland: Exploring the Jungfrau | June 19-26, 2016
Life doesn't get much better than 8 days of hiking, cheese, chocolate, and transformation in the Alps! Join MSA's Founder & Chief Adventure Officer, Michael Bennett, Ed.D., in Switzerland as we embark on a life-changing, perspective-busting experience. On this Swiss Adventure, you will: Hike on some of the world's most scenic trails; experience the Eiger, Monch, and Jungfrau peaks; be mesmerized by glacial waterfalls; hear cow's bells singing their melodic tunes as they graze on alpine pastures; indulge in Switzerland's famous foods; sleep in quaint Alpine villages; and disconnect from the stresses and busyness of life. Along the way, Michael will use the trip's many adventures and experiences as catalysts for lively and inspired discussions and personal reflection. You will reconnect with yourself, rediscover your passions, and craft the perfect plan to kick-start the next chapter of your life doing meaningful work that you love!
