An Entirely Different Perspective on Travel…
This pre-recorded Masterclass will be accessible until September 30th, 2022.
FOR THE ADVENTUROUS…
I have spent almost twenty years —exactly half my life— on the road. Traveling, seeking, living abroad. Being carved by the road, and plunged head-first into life’s deepest questions.
Of all the requests I receive in my coaching practice, what I’m asked most are questions about travel. How to break out of the routine life at home. How to choose where to go— the best adventure, the best value-for-money, the most feminine women. Men want the logistical details so they can start their preparation. They want a taste, through story; a dream, of what to expect.
But I hold a different perspective on the meaning, the desire, and the potential for travel. For me, travel represents an opportunity for transformation, for spiritual maturity, for Initiation into a whole new sense of self. If you get it right.
Temptation and laziness abound when we’re on the road. And the easiest thing when travelling is to have a ‘conventional’ experience. When you seek safety, similar minds, and the local Irish pub, you come home with a few laughs, an empty pocket, and unchanged. You return to the same office, the same friends, and within weeks you long to leave home once more. Opportunity lost.
What to pack, when to go, and how to fund your trip are questions answered everywhere. I am more interested in the psycho-spiritual nature of travel. What happens in a man’s own heart when he breaks away from the conventional world that raised him? What changes when you are forced to carve your identity anew, amidst the great unknown?
So come and join me, not for a conversation about cheap kicks and quitting the 9-to-5… not even for a talk about finding ‘like-minded souls’, or some ideal woman, to give you a sense of belonging…
In 'The Art of Initiatory Travel'
we will address:
In this recorded two-hour Masterclass, you will have the chance to discuss your travel questions with me. We will take a fresh look at your needs for ‘outer preparation’, having considered the deeper ‘inner motivations’ for your trip. You will cut to the essence of how you want your journey to transform you. And you will learn how to prepare both psychologically and spiritually for the true treasures that travel has to offer.
Via a couple of frameworks I’ve never shared before, and plenty of interaction, you will see your dreams and longings in a deeper way, ensuring you don’t just leave home with optimised luggage, but an entirely new worldview on just what is possible for you out on the road.
This is the difference between your travel being utterly satisfying, transformative, and soaked in the kind of insights that will alter the course of your life…
… or your travel being a standard affair; an experience of detachment, exile, empty consumerism, or connection-chasing.
Gather around, and come and hear this from a man who’s lived this path.

How the MASTERCLASS Works
The Art of Initiatory Travel is a recorded Masterclass, featuring over four hours of new and exclusive material, and hosted by me, Jordan Luke Collier.
Following a couple of brand-new lectures and some interactive group-work, I open a wide space for discussion on the topic of initiatory travel… answering questions, challenging you with my own, and exploring through conversation how you can get more meaning, more beauty, and more transformation through your adventurous pursuits.
In this Masterclass format, the fact that we are like minds, all gathered around one essential topic, means that you will pluck insights from everyone’s questions and answers — not just your own. Come prepared for a rich and a fast-paced time, and take plenty of notes. Alongside the recording, this on-demand programme comes with a fully-written set of practices and assignments that you can do, to implement the ideas from this Masterclass into your life.
You get full access to this digital recording as soon as your purchase goes through.
Four hours of Video Lectures and a vibrant Q&A
Recordings & Community
Recordings of the entire session are stored on our customised online platform, and will be available for 180 days. You will get access to a private group for participants of this Masterclass, where you can share insights, questions and stories long after the even has finished.
JORDAN LUKE COLLIER
I’m a sliding doors figure for most of my clients: I’ve spent the past twenty years studying nothing but beauty and love, the nature of transformation, and the good life. Nearly all those years were spent in desirable foreign climes. My early backpacking trips transformed me.
Growing up in small-town England, it quickly became clear that a University degree was not a path to a meaningful career, and the corporate, consumption-based mindset that pervaded our culture at the time had no meaning for me. A friend once turned to me and said, ‘if you wanna be one of those people with genuinely exciting work, you’ve gotta keep traveling and meeting new people: this is the only way alternative lifestyles will present themselves to you’.
So I did exactly that. Six months in Asia, three years in South America, and I escaped from the traveler’s trail, learned local languages, and became immersed. I followed my bliss, learned new skills, new ways of being (and ways of loving), and gained a new sense of identity. Step by step, my ‘spiritual’ path, and my vocation, were revealed. That path has continually deepened ever since.
My twenty year-old self would be proud to know just what a travel-rich lifestyle he would create for himself, and how aligned this would become to my ‘purpose’. Yet the old spiritual maxim holds true: that wherever you go, there you are. You can run from the homeland you’ve grown tired of, but sooner or later you will have to confront your shadows, your demons, and be faced with the necessity to transform.
Come gather around, and get the inside scoop of man’s twenty-first century Odyssey

This Masterclass is one of four brand new Masterclasses, offered by Jordan Luke Collier and the Ars Amorata. Each Masterclass centres around an urgent and popular question shared among our audience, and in each Masterclass we share some unique and unconventional ways of looking at that question.
Future Masterclasses will cover the topics of Leadership & Life Purpose, the Challenges of Relationship and Commitment, Relating Across Cultures, the Yoga of Beauty, and Re-Igniting the Spark. Through his unique blend of teaching, storytelling, live coaching and break-out group interaction, Jordan offers ways to completely re-interpret some of the challenges that touch right to a man’s heart.
