It’s our birthright to be happy and know our innermost nature. Become the person everyone wants to be around…

We all know that we have something within or inside of us that is bigger than us. It’s universal.

How to get connected to it is the most difficult part.

You need a guide.

You need to be taken outside of your normal life and routine.

The heart knows, what it needs to connect with, all it wants is recognition, for us to shift our perspective and experience what is already within.

I will take you on a journey (of immersion) into your inner nature.

Once you find that experience for yourself, it will be with you always.

Let me help you hold it and nurture it as you merge it back into your life.

This is no ordinary spiritual retreat, this is not spiritual tourism. This is a full spiritual opening to who you already are.

 The real retreat is the retreat into the soul.  I will take you to the most amazing places to do it.

If you are ready, I’d love to provide the trip of a lifetime for you. You need to be the right fit and I’m sure you have 1000 questions so schedule in a time to chat. :-)

INDIA JANUARY 2020

 
 

The Yatra - South India Pilgrimage. January 1st-11th, 2020.

India is the home and ‘mother ship’ of my spiritual lineage which I became initiated in as a teacher in 2018.

India is the epicentre of spirituality on the planet.  Her gift to the world is this most universal and ancient of all the belief systems.  It is what makes India and her people unique and unforgettable. There are certain hot spots in India that I’d say and have experienced, give a 100% return on investment and one of those rare places is Ganeshpuri.

Ganeshpuri was made famous in the last century because a very great being, a rare ‘avadhut’ chose to live there.  His name was Bhagawan Nityananda.

Yatra is a Hindu word for pilgrimage. This is a simple and elegant yet fun and adventurous pilgrimage following the movements of this great, great being and visiting the temples, mandirs and monuments to him while meditating and deepening our experience of the divine with his energy at those places.

 We fly into Cochin on Dec 31st as the retreat begins first thing in the morning on January 1st.  What a brilliant way to see in the New Year and start 2020! Seriously, I’m so excited!

 From a day seeing the beautiful seaside town of Cochin, we take an Indian train trip up to Kanhangad, the original home of Nityananda where he built the famous meditation caves.  Due to the condition of the ashram there, we will be staying close by at a nice new hotel and spend all day at the ashram as well as visiting the nearby places and temples he frequented.  There is also a wonderful ashram there called the Ananda Ashram, the home of Papa Ram Das who is also a favourite of mine and will be one of the most loving and beautiful places you will ever go to.

After Kanhangad we take a road trip up to Udipi.  Heaven for me as this is the home of Indian cuisine, with a magnificent beach and an ancient and amazing Krishna temple.  We will be eating and visiting the Bhagawan Mandir here that is run by Sadhu’s…gotta see it. ;-)

From Udipi we go down to Mangalore and visit the ashram of Tulsi Amma who wrote the famous book of Bhagawan’s teachings, the Chidakash Gita. Here we pay homage to her.  Mangalore is a beautiful town with many temples, and great shopping…we will have a shopping afternoon here. 

 After our southern trip, a tour of Nityananda is not complete without flying to Mumbai and going to where he spent the second half of his life, the holy town of Ganeshpuri for two nights and for some already, have a couple of days break and then the Ganeshpuri main retreat starts :-D

Included in the retreat is:

•    Transportation from the airport in Cochin on the 31st December 2019, to the hotel then to the train station.

•     The train trip to Kanhangad. *

•    The road trip from Kanhangad to Udipi, to Mangalore and to the airport.

•    Trips to the temples and monuments.

•    SIM card for your phone for the duration of your trip with us.

•    Our own guide for the trip.

For me it is about the smiles :-)

Main Retreat - Ganeshpuri & Varanasi. January 14th -27th, 2020.

Ganeshpuri January 14-23

followed by Varanasi 23-27

*It is optional to do one part and not both.

Ganeshpuri was made famous in the last century because a very great being, a rare ‘avadhut’ chose to live there. 

One day he literally strolled into town in his, and there he stayed.  All spiritual aspirants know…. follow the great beings! What is so special about this particular great being is that when he left this earth, he stayed in spirit. Remarkably, the grace in this little town is off the meter.  The energy is so intense and palpable that you have no choice but to feel it working through you from the cells, the heart, the mind, the energy bodies…everything.  If you want the real deal, the full divine immersion and the most authentic, simple sample of village life, then this is for you.  It is a town known only for and by dedicated spiritual travellers, it’s not a tourist town. It’s a portal to a Divine experience. 

In Ganeshpuri, we blend into village life and become friends with the locals. We follow a simple yet effective daily routine of early meditation, breakfast, an activity, lunch, rest in the afternoons, a program with mentoring, self-inquiry or a proper Satsang program held every evening. Then dinner and a trip down to the village to the temple for evening Aarati.

 Varanasi holds a special place for me too.  Aside from Ganeshpuri, Varanasi has its own unique and palpable spiritual energy.  As one of the oldest living spiritual cities and cultures on earth, Varanasi is a living and breathing museum and a place all seekers must visit in their lifetimes.  There is nothing like meditating by the mighty holy Ganges river, having a boat ride, seeing the Ghats, watching the people making offerings to the river as they have for thousands of years.

 We will see everything from the burning ghats to one of the most ancient, Shiva temples down the medieval alley-ways – seriously it’s something out of Indiana Jones!  We will take you to ashrams and temples of great beings and deities famous in that town, and you will delight in the luxury aspect of this part of the trip which will be a contrast after the simple village experience of Ganeshpuri.

Each day will begin similarly with meditation then breakfast, an outing or activity, some lunch, rest in the afternoon, a program early evening, dinner, hear a chant and sit by the river.  The hotel is a palace and is literally right on the river – sensational!
