Comprising three UNESCO Heritage sites, Jeju offers the ideal location to experience beauty, explore wonder, and examine possibilities.

LANDSCAPE

Desert Odyssey is a process to bring about transformation, a programme that provides a map to navigate this journey, and a place of generous and radical hospitality where transformation is lived out.

JOURNEY

Desert Odyssey is to help us traverse the desert of our own painful and bewildering experiences. It is being able to start anew, our lives re-storied, our brokenness re-membered, our relationships re-conciled. It is a journey of discoveries and conversations.

ESCAPES

Every journey into the unknown and the unfamiliar requires a map and a compass to help us navigate the journey. At Desert Odyssey, the map consists of the following contours and terrain.
