Close your eyes…now imagine a journey to an undisclosed location in the outskirts of Rishikesh in India, nestled in the midst of the State forest where animals such as tigers, elephants, monkeys, peacocks, buffalo, panthers and many more animals still freely roam. A safe secluded environment accessible only through winding mountainous roads.
Now imagine a space of serenity, calmness and peace as you walk down the hill into a green, open space where the energy is grounding and deeply spiritual…This is your home for the next 12 days.
You will be staying in individual safari tents, with a double bed and your own bathroom facility. The staff practice karma yoga, to be of service. You will experience five star service in this place of tranquility.
Our day starts with a 6.00am herbal tea to awaken the body from sleep, before a light yoga practice at 6.15am. The focus of our daily practice is a deeper connection to the breath, our life force. We have three main meals a day, which are provided through a self styled buffet. Each prepared with fresh organic produce. The food is mainly vegetarian. You are greeted with a smile and blessing everytime you encounter the staff. You will discover a true love of service; a lesson for all of us. Service with no expectation…Humility and compassion.
Daily workshops on the teachings of Shamanism with practical applications. Individual, group and partner activities. Lots of joy and love throughout the day in this space. Daily free time to rest and process. Beautiful snacks and marsala chai for morning and afternoon tea.
After dinner each night we have a gathering around the fire with marsala chai and supper. This is a beautiful connection time for all of us. Much laughing and storytelling. You can see the stars in the night sky….dramatic and beautiful.
What you will receive is an experience and a journey that cannot be put into words. I know this by the testimonials and shared experiences from those that attended the November retreat. As you continue on this path know this, your life will never be the same. You will be creating your own reality.
There is much fun to be had at the retreat, as well as an exploration of the cultural identify of Rishikesh and a deep discovery of your true self.
