THE SOLO TRAVEL SOLUTION

A Way To Move Through Suffering Into Feeling Alive!

A Book written as Blog Posts. Introduction, Part 2

* * *

Kerouac arms crossedJack Kerouac wrote this:

“I see a vision of a great rucksack revolution thousands or even millions of young Americans wandering around with rucksacks…..   all of ’em Zen Lunatics who go about writing poems that happen to appear in their heads for no reason….”  (from The Dharma Bums)

Kerouac was above all a writer, and above that, a mystic. He developed a keen awareness for the unseen forces of life that are always moving through us, and he feverishly put it all down in words and words and words, all while keeping himself moving through America and beyond.

As a generation of Baby Boomers became born into a world where the promise of an American Dream was always in front of them — a home of your own, the security of a long-term job at a prestigious company, a wife, a husband, three kids, two cars, and all the ice cream you could ever want to eat at your favorite suburban restaurant — Kerouac’s sword of a pen pierced through the heart of the hypocrisy before anyone realized the promise was a lie.

He wasn’t a revolutionary. He was a mystic. He was consumed with a passion that took him on the road, into train cars, onto ships, writing everything his mind thought onto every substance his hands could find in order to convey the presence of a spirit that moved through his soul. He made language new. He found awe and aliveness and meaning and mystery in motion. He discovered the other side of himself by leaving everything behind.

Forty-five years after Jack Kerouac left the physical world, we are still being promised an American Dream. We are still being sold an idea that who we really are will be provided for by the government, technology, retirement plans, pharmaceuticals, medical insurance, unlimited texting, wireless networks, open-air malls, organic food, online learning, energy boosters, sleep-aids, weddings, marriages, mortgages, piercings, kids menus, big screen TV’s, botox, blueberry margaritas, hedge funds, doctors, lawyers and your parents.

And so on.

Sure, there’s lots of good qualities to the things our culture provides for us. People can still  sustain a happy life with a good job and a fine partner and healthy children.  Nothing wrong with that, indeed. What brings you joy keeps you alive.

But are you really feeling joy? Are you really feeling alive?

Or is there a living poem wandering aimlessly in your head?

A poem of discontent. A poem of unease. A poem of private suffering.

A poem about what only you went through as a child. A poem that no one else seems to understand. A poem about the mood that keeps coming back. A poem about the flood of emotions you don’t want to feel.

A poem about finding the someone you can’t seem to find. A poem about leaving the someone you can’t seem to leave.

A poem that lets you breathe. A poem that pulls the pinkie out of the dam.

Solo Travel Solution is waiting for youA living poem that has to be experienced before it is expressed.

This is what Kerouac was trying to achieve. A state of living poetry. A way of being that helps people to experience a sense of aliveness that brings with it such unfathomable wisdom, it can bring you to tears. An experience of motion that unites you with the momentum that drives the energy of the universe itself.

The world we are provided with is not the only world. There is another. A world beyond the one you are living in, beyond the suffering you may be going through right now.

It exists. But the only way to discover it is by setting forth on a journey, getting into motion and wandering aimlessly. The only to find it is by leaving everything behind.

This is THE SOLO TRAVEL SOLUTION.

A way to experience living poetry in motion.  A way to let the suffering move through you.

The promise of Kerouac is alive.

The Solo Travel Journey

* * * *

The Solo Travel Journey is an emotional journey.

What does this mean?plane and sunset

It means you don’t actually need to travel anywhere in order to move through the kind of profound change that a Solo Travel Journey will inspire within you. You don’t have to pack your bags and figure out who’s watching the kids and make sure you get those extra days off so you can go through that weird and penetrating state of doubt that affects just about everyone who has taken a Solo Travel Journey at least once.

That “what the hell am I doing this for” doubt.

It means that you have permission to allow your emotions to move through you like clouds through the sky. All of your emotions.  All of your joy and peace and contentment.  And all of your bitterness, frustration and resentment. Your body is the vehicle for all of this energy. You have it in you to release all of it. Let it go. Let it pass. Keep it moving.

That said, it can be easier to let the feeling of motion do the work for you. Like when you jump in a car and your favorite song comes on. Like the moment the plane takes off and you are hurled back into your seat, knowing you will wake up in another land.

Now that’s an emotional journey.

Maybe it’s time you took one.

I NEED YOUR HELP WITH SOMETHING…

It’s a project that will help people move through profound changes in their lives.

My name is Michael Jason Sherman. I’m a Life Coach and the author of THE ZEN OF SOLO TRAVEL. On February 24th, I will begin leading an online course called “FOUR WEEKS TO FEELING ALIVE,” which will teach people how to individually design their own transformational Solo Travel Journey.

It will be a fun and fascinating group intensive, with lots of individual attention and caring guidance to help people move through change in their relationships, their mindset and the overall direction in their work and life.

By the end of the course, participants will have a breadth of knowledge about issues such as marriage, divorce, attracting a partner, dealing with childhood wounds, emotional management, finding and expressing your inner voice, life direction and spirituality. They will be engaged in content, material and stories that will inspire and educate them, while bringing relief, hope and inner peace.

And they will be prepared to design and go on their own transformational Solo Travel Journey after the course is over. Doesn’t matter if you decide to take a walk in the woods or buy a round trip ticket around the world. The system works however you can use it.

“When I found Michael, I was already pretty sure my marriage was over. He took me through a journey examining certain parts of my past and decisions I had made. He prepared me for a Solo Travel Journey. I learned to trust myself and say “Yes!” to new experiences. I opened my mind and my heart, met amazing people and began to shine from within. I returned home filled with confidence and faith in myself and the universe.”   – Kathy, Solo Travel Coaching Graduate

HEALING ANXIETY THROUGH SOLO TRAVEL

* * *

This morning, I awoke to the sounds, sights and smells of a ton of garbage — literally — sitting in front of my house.  Apparently, a fire somehow started inside this collection of other people’s waste as it was being carried by a truck around the neighborhood.  Had the vehicle not belched all the garbage out onto the ground, the whole thing would have exploded in flames and been destroyed.garbage truck dumping

That’s when I realized, this was a fantastic metaphor for the start of a Solo Travel Journey. When one takes such a spiritual journey, leaving everything in their life behind, the very choice to set forth into motion ignites a fire in one’s heart. Once you are out there alone, caught up in the speed of momentum and mystery, that fire forces all the garbage you’ve been carrying around in your mind to be “dumped” from your consciousness.

Blecchhh.

It’s a massive emotional purge. Everything you’ve been holding onto, all the stress, the confusion, the resentment, the negativity… all of that becomes irrelevant when you feel the wind blowing through your hair on the highway, or that tug on your gut that lures you back when the plane darts forward. It doesn’t necessarily matter where you are going. Rather, what matters is who you are about to meet out there on the road — your true nature.

This beautiful, mysterious, magical, intimate, honorable, healing rendez-vous requires that all the emotional garbage that you’ve been carrying around be dumped.

As the author of the E-Book, THE ZEN OF SOLO TRAVEL: A Journey from Anxiety to Enlightenment (Click:Here), and the creator of The Solo Travel Solution program of healing and transformation, I’m a product of this process. I’ve set forth on many Solo Travel Journeys and sent many clients on their way as well. 

Some clients simply go into the woods or the city for a few hours or a few days to get the feeling of privacy and motion. Others find their way around the world. Either way, this solo motion clears the emotional energy that is stored within one’s body, energy that more often than not shows up as anxiety.

Backpacker Waiting for her TrainI’m not a believer in magic bullets or miracle pills. But I’ve been around the block with healing modalities — therapy, seminars, meditation, medication, recovery, books, support groups, martial arts, and so on. Each has had their own place in my life, and in the lives of my clients. What I can say is that nothing has penetrated to the heart of the matter as much as setting forth on a Solo Travel Journey, particularly when it’s done with a spiritually systematic design. 

The journey is a container of time, with a beginning, middle and end. Within this container, one naturally receives teachings and moves through tests. You take your life into your own hands, and the feeling of momentum does the rest. Doing so takes your condition of anxiety beyond the counseling office, and moves the emotional energy of your body in ways that awaken your spirit and let you feel alive. By recording your experience in words and pictures, you bring back home a mental anchor of the trip, that helps you to regain that spirit of healing once you return to the life you left behind.

Again, there are no magic bullets. But for myself and my clients, what we learn out there on the road puts our lives into alignment, stimulating a sense of confidence in ourselves and our purpose, which helps us to sustain practices that ward away anxiety once we return home. We can always go back any time, setting forth alone for another dump of the emotional garbage we start carrying again after a period of time. It’s just like doing the dishes. You’ve got to clean up the mess.

But when you see Solo Travel as a serious method of personal healing, then you’ll be cleaning up a mess that erupted from your system because of a fire that started in your heart. Then the mess doesn’t seem so bad.  But the fire keeps you awake and alive.
