I have been dreaming about India …

A Women’s Yoga Retreat in Rishikesh, India

with Kirsten Warner, Kerry Temple-Wood & Cheryl Walters

November 3-13, 2020

Throughout the ages Rishikesh has been the abode of saints and sages. Known as the yoga capital of the world, it is one of the most potent places in the world for meditation and awakening. The richness of India’s holy places, traditions and rituals provide the perfect atmosphere for those longing to awaken their hearts and minds. Join us on this sacred journey to one of the holiest, most mystical & powerful places in India!

Say YES to India’s transformational magic and the experience of a lifetime!

This Women’s Retreat will take us to one of the most sacred and beautiful places in North India.

We will experience the deep spiritual atmosphere of this holy place as well as some of the pulsing vibrancy of modern India. The outer adventure of traveling into the great unknown of this mystical country, will mimic the epic inner adventure. This is a journey for spiritual renewal, a chance to come home to your highest self through stepping outside your comfort zone, meditation, travel, yoga and powerful women’s practices. You will discover things about yourself and the world that you never knew existed, free blocked energy in your body and make space for your bright inner light to shine.

WHERE WILL WE BE?

  • Our retreat will take place in the beautiful Anand Lok Retreat Center, just outside of Rishikesh in Northern India.
  • Quiet, focused retreat time will be balanced with a few group excursions to nearby towns, temples and schools. You will also have some free time for your own practice, adventures and explorations.
  • The magic in the air here is palpable. Surrounded by exquisite mountains and nestled right above the sacred Ganga river you will feel drawn towards deep practice and communion with the divine.

    Here, everything pulses with the energy of thousands of years of practice. The feel of the land, the hearts of the people, the smell in the air… it’s truly indescribable.

WHAT YOU’LL RECEIVE IN THE WOMEN’S YOGA RETREAT:

  • On this sacred pilgrimage, you will leave the rapid pace of modern life. Through a gentle daily schedule with ample periods for unscheduled reflection on the gorgeous grounds of the Anand Lok Retreat Center, you’ll reconnect with your soul’s spacious, melodic rhythm. As time slows down and you shed the voices of “have to” or “should do,” you’ll hear the inner song of your soul and explore ways to give it voice.
  • During these ten days, you’ll be guided through daily yoga practices, meditations, chanting and self-reflection exercises that will shake out the old, stagnant energy and wake up new, creative insight in your body, mind and soul.
  • Together we will go on incredible adventures. Traveling high into the Himalayas to spend the day with bright eyed and giggling school children. Hiking through a monkey filled forest to a magical Durga Temple with spectacular views, participating in sacred fire pujas with the beloved priest, offering prayers and swimming in the Holy Ganga River, wandering through the colorful markets, taking part in the exquisite Ganga Aarti and hanging out with spiritual seekers and teachers from around the world. Rituals and roses, chaos and grace, marigolds and mantras, unforgettable sunrises and the best chai of your life.
  • And don’t forget the fun! And play! And breathtaking beauty! Laughing like school girls when we should be sleeping. Crying with relief for being seen and understood. And sharing it all with the women that will feel soon like the pack of soul sisters you’ve been longing for all your life.
