Abstract

This qualitative study reports on the impact of a tour of the Holy Land on two participants. This investigation was conducted as a collaborative auto-ethnographic study actively involving the researchers. Data was generated through individual diaries of daily highlights and other interesting aspects while on the Holy Land tour, as well as through observations, notes, reflections, interpretations, discussions and sharing of thoughts on return from the tour. The findings show that both researchers have experienced transformative learning through their experience contextualising through a visual perspective which has provided deeper meaningful understanding which continues to enhance their personal spiritual journal. In addition, the impact of the trip has been positive because of contributing factors such as planning, group membership and active engagement making this trip unlike any other.
