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

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
