About Spirit Road Travel

Meet Amy Stifel Quinn

Amy Quinn’s passion is to help high-performing female leaders – who constantly prioritize others – to plan travel that finally honors themselves. We’ve all been there, serving others, prioritizing community needs, taking care of loved ones. We wouldn’t change these opportunities in any way. Yet, we often neglect our own self-care and desires. 

Making sure clients can Travel Their Life Now on their own terms motivates Amy. Understanding what matters means cultivating self-awareness during the travel process. Since the Inner Journey absolutely impacts the Outer journey Amy spends plenty of time identifying experiences that are meaningful. Living in truth with one’s values creates joy and that’s truly her mission: to create joy for all creatures on this earth. How else will our gifts manifest?

About fifteen years ago in a noisy tube with radioactive juice in her body, and a machine taking X-rays, Amy willed her body to be healthy. During this time her commitment to caring for her Inner Journey became solidified. Broadcasts On The Spirit Road emerged from knowing that travel experiences are resplendent with themes of the Inner & Outer, Stillness & Movement, New & Old, Comfort & Discomfort, Arriving & Departing. 

Global travel opportunities to more than 20 countries, living abroad, and working in the hospitality industry (including for American Airlines) have equipped Amy with the right skills for planning travel.  See Amy’s LinkedIn profile HERE. Check out Client Reviews Here

Broadcasts On the Spirit Road

On The Spirit Road, we guide High Performers on the Inner Journey and provide lifetime experiences for the Outer Journey. 

In a noisy tube and radioactive juice in my body, with a machine taking X-rays, I willed my body to be healthy. That was me fifteen years ago and it was when my meditation practices and commitment to the Inner Journey became solidified. 

Broadcasts on the Spirit Road explore the impact of “travel” on our lives. Interviews focus on the Inner and Outer Journey, including entertaining stories from experts in the industry and thought leaders across a range of fields. We explore what transformation looks like and how travel changes us. As a Certified Search Inside Yourself Teacher, I also explore mindfulness and specific skills for boosting our emotional intelligence, especially important for living in an uncertain world.

She works out of London, her hometown in Italy and all over the world. In particular, she offers bespoke coaching programs to leaders who want to make a difference!

Search Inside Yourself (SIY) on the Spirit Road

Think back about the last time you went somewhere new. Maybe it was a stroll in a local neighbourhood. Or perhaps you landed somewhere exotic on vacation. We know that our recent Sheltering At Home experience was very much an Inside Journey and new in so many ways. Typically when we’re somewhere new or experiencing something for the first time, we’re very VERY PRESENT to the sounds, what we see, the smells, the energy, who is around us…all of our senses are engaged. Honing our “Being Present” mindfulness skills is a key component of the Search Inside Yourself program and to cultivating Emotional Intelligence.

At Spirit Road Travel we’re about the journey in your life, internally and externally, whether you’re actually travelling or not. How we show up everyday matters. To “Live As Travelers” every day we need emotional intelligence. The great news is that we can train our emotional intelligence: Self Awareness, Self Management, Empathy (Social Connection) and Leading with Compassion. Tap the Power of Mindfulness and strengthen Emotional Intelligence for your organization and team in 2020 and beyond.  Managing ourselves during uncertain tumultuous times is key for our happiness, productivity and cultivating resilience.

As a Certified Search Inside Yourself Teacher I work with companies and a wide range of organizations interested in hosting online or (once again) in-person a Two Day Workshop. Keynotes, “Lunch and Learns”, One Day, Half Day programs are also available. All programs are 2/3’s experiential!

What is Search Inside Yourself ?

Search Inside Yourself (SIY), a mindfulness-based program initially created at Google, is a workshop to train  Emotional Intelligence. Daniel Goleman, the author of the book, Emotional Intelligence, and co-author (with Richard Davidson) of the recent Best-Seller, Altered Traits, suggests that there are five components of Emotional Intelligence: self- awareness, self-management, motivation, empathy and leadership.

The SIY program combines current neuroscience and mindfulness practices in a coherent, content-rich Two Day workshop. The educational experience is life-changing, inspiring, accessible and useful. It’s for those new to any type of mindfulness program, “seasoned” practitioners or in-between. 

Audience  The SIY program typically holds 20-80 participants and can be customized for a variety of participants including:

  • Senior Leaders and Executives
  • Teams
  • New Managers
  • Individual Contributors
  • Recent College Graduates

How We Work

You’ve wanted to hone and actualize your travel dreams for a while, even before the pandemic. Obstacles seem to push out your plans: no time, too many priorities, (a pandemic), not enough budget, unsure where to start, overwhelmed with other responsibilities.  Sometimes you wonder “Are my travel dreams just ‘pie in the sky’”?

At Spirit Road Travel there’s not a plan we can’t imagine, create and crystallize. We move in step with you.

Services include :

Access to Hotel Reservations – No Charge

Sometimes you just want a quick Get-Away with a reliable “vetted” hotel and some included No Hoax amenities. No paying for wifi! The most important meal of the day, breakfast, is usually included. We partner with boutique, independent and luxury hotels typically starting at $350/night.

Use our free Hotel Booking Platform HERE or 

Let us handle the reservations free of charge. Contact us HERE

Travel Guidance Sharing  (TGS similar to GDS- we’ll show you the way) – $350

We have relationships with astute travel partners and advisors who know their destination and product/service best. And, sharing is something we learned early in life!

Since you’re very much a DIY-er, enjoy “mixing and matching” accommodations (perhaps prefer an Airbnb option), using your hard-earned loyalty points and maximizing your travel spend but don’t have much time nor know where to start, we provide guidance, itinerary essentials and resources well-matched to your intention. 

Expect some follow-up, too (Don’t you remember the advice…”When we go out in the world, hold hands, watch the traffic and stick together…”).

Travel Guidance Sharing includes:

  • Two phone calls 
  • A PDF of resources, suggestions and Next Steps
  • Flight* and Hotel reservations, if applicable.

*Fees apply for flight reservations. It’s worth the money knowing you have someone to call if your flights go awry.

Full Itinerary Planning – $400

  • You hire us to tend to every detail, source every experience, make all reservations, craft individual itineraries, herd a group, and create a logical beautiful flow for a journey.
  • You hire us to create ease and to feel heard.  It’s your time to put your travel needs first.We’ll be with you before, during and after the trip, always.

Consult for Identifying Your Life Dream or Well-Being Trip.

We enjoy helping people understand the “Why”, “Where” and “What” of their travel. Schedule HERE-  No Charge
