About the Journey
Spend 13 days and 12 nights in the
mother land during the best time of the
year! This will be a journey of a thousand
lifetimes, one to ignite the fire inside and
quench the thirst for truth. India is all
about healing, she takes your prayers,
your sorrow, your doubt and turns them
into the blossoming flower of your hearts
greatest offering. Your life. Your life is
your art. We will explore temples, holy
sites, beaches, mountains, caves, the
river Ganga. We will relax with the locals
and immerse ourselves in a foreign culture

ourselves. There will be sacred music
offered daily by Ena Vie and Howard Lipp
to take you deeper into a healing space.
And of course lots of YOGA and Adventure!!
