“Best trip of my life. I will always treasure our time together in India. You are exceptional and really go the extra mile, Eden. You made a dream and a miracle happen for me. You will forever be in my heart.” – Patty
Our awe-inspiring 2023 India And Himalayan Yoga Pilgrimage Retreat is a journey designed to rejuvenate you, your heart, and your traveling Spirit post-pandemic.
Adventuring to some of the most cultural, most beautiful, and most auspicious sacred sites of the Himalayas – as people have done in India for centuries – we will turn the world into our temple and life into a practice for 14 days of classical spiritual living meant to inspire you on your path.
“What a special trip we had! Thank you, Eden-ji, for leading us to all those special places and a lifetime adventure.” – Inggriani
As pictured above, lodging for our 2023 India And Himalayan Yoga Pilgrimage Retreat will be at 5-star hotels and retreat centers and will feature some of the nicest accommodations available in the respective areas. Please keep in mind, too, that when we are high in the Himalayas in Nainital, just having hot running water and organic food makes it 5-star quality, as many places up there don’t even have that. Accordingly, we will do our best to “control the controllables” and travel in only 1st class trains and luxury busses to help ensure that you have as comfortable an experience as possible, even though it is India after all. Moreover, we’ll have a professional local travel company coordinating our safe passage and trip details.
“I am forever grateful for the wonderfully ambitious experience you crafted for us in India. It was life changing for me. The perceptions of my day-to-day reality were altered in a way that was deeply contemplative and filled with joy. I became happier, more empathetic, and more patient with myself and others. I will continue to manifest this. You, Eden, changed my life! I am forever grateful to you, Eden-ji!” – Eve

While our daily schedule will vary from day-to-day due to our travel and activities, every day will include a few opportunities to practice asana and participate in meditation, along with daily satsang. Better still, all activities and spiritual excursions are optional and attendance is never required or mandatory, only suggested. Most of all – and especially considering there are so many amazing activities and excursions planned – proper self-care and resting when needed is highly encouraged.
