The term journey is often used in the metaphysical community to describe an active meditation or astral projection that is undertaken as a truth-seeking mission or similar, often to find out deeper truths about the self and to connect with different aspects of the self.
A journey group is a group of people who gather to undertake meditative or astral journeys together and discuss their experiences. Sometimes these journeys are guided by a speaker.
On occasion, herbs may be used to facilitate the journey by encouraging altered states of consciousness.
The word journey is also used to describe the sum of the experiences, interactions, and knowledge that you have gained in your life that have brought you to the level of wisdom you have achieved now and will ultimately gain before the end.
