A consciousness event in India

The village of Rishikesh is nestled in the foothills of the Himalayas on the banks of the Ganges River and has been home to great saints and Vedic masters for thousands of years. We have been exploring and studying in this beautiful area for more than a decade and we’re looking forward to providing a privileged look into a region that will inspire and amaze.

Experiencing the Veda

This is an exciting exploration of the ancient Vedic culture, first in New Delhi and then in and around the holy village of Rishikesh. This journey of personal discovery will include knowledge talks, exploring the local area, witnessing ceremonies by the banks of the Ganges, visiting temples in the Himalayan foothills, meeting with local swamis and masters, and enjoying delicious vegetarian cuisine.

Encountering the Self

This aspect is a programme of yoga and deep meditations within the nourishing environment of the ashram. This is a rare opportunity to take your practice to the next level through extended immersion into subtle layers of awareness. This creates fascinating and purifying experiences during meditation and ultimately delivers an upgrade in happiness upon your return home.

The Venues and travel

You get yourself to New Delhi. We’ll pick you up from the airport and take you to a modern, comfortable hotel. After a day of sightseeing in Delhi, we take a first-class train to Rishikesh. We stay in a simple ashram on the banks of the Ganges river. At the end of the retreat, we’ll get you back to New Delhi.
