John Campbell is the author of The Secret of Intimate Relationships and pioneer of Soul Sex, a new way of lovemaking that removes the barriers to love and connects you to the intimacy, beauty, joy and togetherness of the relationship, restoring it if it has been lost. We asked John to share his thoughts about travel and transformation with us.
Why do you travel?
To continue to broaden my horizons and experience new places and people. Having visited over 90 different countries I also think it would be great to make it 100!
What does travel do for your soul?
It constantly reminds me that, despite our apparent differences in culture, colour, religion etc, basically we are all so connected at a soul level and are desirous of being at peace with each other and experiencing joy.

What was the most significant journey you have taken and why?
A visit to spend two weeks in Abadiania in Brazil. We visited the Casa dom Ignacio and experienced the world renowned healer, John of God. It was the most incredibly powerful experience of a human being showering others with unconditional love and I had my eyes cured and was able to throw away my glasses, which I had worn for 14 years.

Where is your most inspirational place on earth?
My birthplace, India.
Why? What do you experience there?
Absolute peace and tranquility.
Which sacred place would you most like to visit and why?
Machu Picchu. I love the Inca’s history and enjoy participating in their ceremonies like Ayahuasca and I enjoy seeing the ancient ruins.
How do you choose your travel experiences and destinations?
My partner and I choose by what we feel at any time and listen to our feelings.
What was your last trip and what was special about it?
We went into a mountain retreat in Switzerland for two weeks to learn a new way to make love. It was sensational and deepened our relationship. A truly transforming experience.

Do you believe travel can support rapid spiritual transformation?
That’s a broad question. I don’t think it is the travel, per se, which would deepen the spiritual transformation but I do think that removing oneself from the familiar and breaking new boundaries does enable a person to become more acutely aware of their inner feelings. It’s also great to experience situations which might have been fear inducing previously and find you have the way to transcend the fear.
