The Sojourn Experience
TTC AMBASSADOR: MARIA BALTTAZI
The Sojourn Experience is a company that reflects the many years spent as an Emmy-winning television producer, international traveler, and happiness mentor. Since the late-90s, I have produced shows on all seven continents. I was one of the original producers on CBS' Survivor, and have developed and produced shows for ABC, NBC, Discovery, History, Animal Planet, Travel, National Geographic as well as other broadcasters.
My television adventures eventually inspired another lap around the globe, though this time walking more than two thousand miles training and doing marathons as fundraisers.
After years in the entertainment industry, I began studying the Art and Science of Happiness as a way to deal with the stressful demands of producing. Today, I mentor professionals, especially those in entertainment, to uplevel the quality of their lives. I speak about Happiness, lead workshops, transformational travel trips, and retreats. My work includes teaching Mindfulness, Primordial Sound Meditation, and Prayer of the Heart, as well as Restorative/Yin Yoga.
I am the North American Ambassador for the Transformational Travel Council. I am beyond excited to be part of the inspiring group of fellow sojourners. I curate and guide sojourns for the solo traveler, private groups, corporate retreats, and alumni organizations.
And yes, I still produce television shows.
When not traveling, I live in Los Angeles, devoting my time to creating inner and outer journeys for a greater good. I am the Founder of The Sojourn Experience. As part of my company's mission to promote the good in life, I curate an inspirational newsletter, “8 Good Things.” To subscribe, or to say hello, go to sojourn-intl.com.
