Vacation + Wellness, Wisdom
& Entrepreneurial Workshops
The Xsail transformational travel journey seamlessly combines vacation, adventure, cultural activities, local guides, wellness & workshops! We consciously don’t bombard our Tribe with 9-5 learning, but along with island-hopping and local culture, we make space for morning Yoga & Meditation, plus a curated selection of Afternoon & Evening Mind, Body, Spirit workshops & Lightning Talks where members of the tribe can share their feelings, wisdom or journey if they feel inspired in a relaxed Taverna atmosphere.
All in all, the Xsail adventure is designed for the tribe to immerse in the local islands, spectacular scenery and emerge from the Xsail experience rejuvenated, filled with amazing cultural experiences, creative expression, wisdom & personal growth along with some new life tools, epic experiences, plenty of fun plus some amazing new international connections & lifelong friendships.
