Why is a Cross-Cultural Training Service Called Authentic Journeys?

Ashwin asked:
"How does the name "Authentic Journeys" relate to a cross-cultural training service?"
Be True To You. Around the Block or Around the World!"
Be True To You. Around the Block or Around the World!"
Jennifer's answer:
"Ashwin, good question!

When we are in cross cultural environments (life journey), we may feel our identity is threatened as we feel compelled to take up new behaviors, languages or mindsets. But we have to be true to ourselves. We have to be authentic!

It's not about "being Indian" or "American" or a nationality, a religion or a culture; but it's about being true to ourselves.

We have to learn to balance the cultural mannerisms with who we are as a person. Some adjustments always have to be made regardless if we move abroad or stay at home our whole life, how do we cope with that? How do we remain "Authentic" and true to ourselves on our "Journeys" of life?"
