WHAT IS A DIVINE DESTINATION?
Clouds part, revealing an ancient mountain temple. A setting sun bathes red desert rocks in a golden glow. A balloon sails over an African savanna, far above migrating herds. The call of a loon perfects the tranquillity of a still lake in Ontario’s northland.

OUR COLOUR PALETTE AND SPIRITUAL MEANING:
What is Spirituality?
Spirituality is a broad concept with room for many perspectives. In general, it includes a sense of connection to something bigger than ourselves, and it typically involves a search for meaning in life. As such, it is a universal human experience—something that touches us all. People may describe a spiritual experience as sacred or transcendent or simply a deep sense of aliveness and interconnectedness.

Purple combines the stability of blue and the energy of red. Purple is associated with royalty. It symbolizes power, nobility, luxury, and ambition. It conveys wealth and extravagance. Purple is associated with wisdom, dignity, independence, creativity, mystery, and magic.
The colour purple holds ancient meaning of sacred wisdom and enlightenment.
The vibration of spirituality – connecting to the Divine presence in oneself.
The colour orange radiates warmth and happiness, combining the physical energy and stimulation of red with the cheerfulness of yellow.
Orange offers emotional strength in difficult times. It helps us to bounce back from disappointments and despair, assisting in recovery from grief.
The colour psychology of orange is optimistic and uplifting, rejuvenating our spirit. In fact orange is so optimistic and uplifting that we should all find ways to use it in our everyday life, even if it is just an orange coloured pen that we use.
Orange brings spontaneity and a positive outlook on life and is a great colour to use during tough economic times, keeping us motivated and helping us to look on the bright side of life.
The colour green relates to balance and harmony. From a colour psychology perspective, it is the great balancer of the heart and the emotions, creating equilibrium between the head and the heart.
From a meaning of colours perspective, green is also the colour of growth, the colour of spring, of renewal and rebirth. It renews and restores depleted energy. It is the sanctuary away from the stresses of modern living, restoring us back to a sense of well being. This is why there is so much of this relaxing colour on the earth, and why we need to keep it that way.
Green is an emotionally positive colour giving us the ability to love and nurture ourselves and others unconditionally. A natural peacemaker, it must avoid the tendency to become a martyr.
VISIONARY AND CONNECTION MAKER
Deb is a true visionary and expert at making connections that can turn visions into reality. After spending a number of years in the travel industry, in 1986 she took on the role as the first employee at Wynford, which today is the largest Meetings and Incentive Travel company in Canada.
Today Deb is co-president at Wynford, and under her guidance and leadership, Wynford has grown to 40 clients, 80 employees, and most impressively, to a company with $70 million in annual sales.
Ever the entrepreneur, Deb took her vision for all things luxurious and her passion for balance and spirituality to also develop The Spirit Yoga Studio and Wine Lounge whose mantra is defined as “where wellness meets wicked in joyful harmony.”
And of course, The Divine Destination Travel Collection is Deb’s newest love and co-creation. The refined travel concept gives Deb the opportunity to shine again, marrying her expertise in incentive travel with her passion for luxury, adventure and meaningful experiences that touch the soul.
In her words… “The creation of The Divine Destination Collection allows me to do what I personally love to do for a living, and that is to travel in comfort and luxury, while experiencing the spiritual aspects of each destination and having a ton of fun!
My intention with this business is to provide incredible experiences to other curious, like-minded people. I am passionate about bringing a business to life that is unique, yet totally aligned with who I am. Spirituality is in my DNA! I love the journey of self-discovery while exploring fabulous new destinations around the world, and always in luxury, comfort and style.
At the same time though, my friends would tell you that I do love to let my hair down and have a heck of a good time either attending or hosting a great party. Not to mention piña coladas and getting caught in the rain…I look forward to discovering the world while experiencing luxury, adventure and spirituality together with you.”
CHIEF LUXURY, ADVENTURE AND RELATIONSHIP OFFICER
Allison was born with travel wanderlust in her blood. While growing up, her father’s job took the family from Canada to Mexico to Japan and back again. Those experiences shaped Allison’s curiosity and developed her insatiable taste for travel.
With Allison’s globe-trotting childhood, perhaps it was only natural she follow a career centered around the travel business.
Since 1988, she has worked for two of the largest Meetings & Incentive Travel companies in Canada. She also spent an exciting time living in central Mexico where she freelanced and travelled on-site to handle the myriad of critical details required to ensure flawless trips for her clients (a standard in the corporate world of Incentive Travel).
The combination of Allison’s vast travel knowledge, paired with her innate creativity, has given her the skills to design experiences that are rich with culture, luxury and personal growth. She brings this expertise to The Divine Destination Travel Collection, providing clients with unique and fulfilling adventures that unveil the beauty of each destination.
In her words… “Travel is who I am. I thirst for new experiences and self-discovery. For me, I am most happy when travelling to unusual and awe-inspiring destinations…in luxurious comfort. I have come to the realization that we can combine luxury and spirituality, and this is what I want to share with the world!
I yearn for the new, wondrous and exotic — elephant trekking in Bhutan, temple hopping in Luang Prabang, hiking the countryside in Myanmar (though it will always be Burma to me) …what’s on your bucket list? I look forward to learning and growing with every trip and sharing those experiences with you. Let’s explore new horizons together.”
