An Akasha curated experience in Goa, India
To inspire, balance & serve the flow of life.
For those that know us, India is no foreign land, it’s the Mother land. Every year she calls us, and we always answer.
We’re taking a few friends along with us to re-create the Akasha experience in Goa, in Jan 2019.
14 Nights in Magical Goa, Jan 5 – Jan 19, 2019
A 14 night retreat to kick off the new year, release the tension of 2018, release constraints held tightly in your being & restart your system gently. We all have expectations and daily stresses that create negative emotions in our physical body which then create a cycle of frustrations & bad habits. Quite often instead of taking more energy in we need to clear all of this saturated energy before.
A chance to detox the subtle body and to give it a good foundation for the year ahead.
South Goa, India
Our beautiful location for this retreat is an oasis of tropical tranquility located in South Goa, in a remote fishing village situated in the lush, verdant foothills of the Western Ghats and minutes away from Goa’s most scenic and pristine beaches, Galgibag, Talpona & Patnem all within easy reach. This is a home away from home, Goa style.

…. QUESTIONS ?
DO I NEED A VISA?
Yes, you do. However this is not an overly complicated process, a 30 day eVisa can be obtained easily online for most nationalities, the approval is instant. If you need a longer visa you will need to go to an Indian embassy near you and simply apply in person.
WHICH AIRPORT & AIRLINES ?
The nearest airport to us is Goa Dabolim International (GOI) airport which is about 1.5hrs away. We will organise a free transport for you from the airport to the retreat.
Purely from personal experience, we have used Thomson Airways, JetAirways & Qatar Airways previously to fly into India.
Thompson Airways has chartered flights direct to Goa Airport from London, which is pretty cool and we just checked about 499GBP return.
Jet Airways have daily flights from London and major European hubs to Mumbai, from there another short domestic flight to Goa, which can also be with JetAirways.
Qatar Airways on the other hand flies from most European cities to Dubai and then a connecting flight direct to Goa.
Depending on which route you prefer. Let us know if you need help.
WHAT ABOUT HEALTH & SAFETY ?
From our experience we have never had any health issues whilst in Goa, however as with most travelling abroad common sense keeps you safe. Though there are no chances of serious illness or epidemics in Goa and therefore no need for injections, jabs or travel pills simple things like: drinking plenty of filtered water to keep hydrated, wearing appropriate factor sunscreen & having adequate travel insurance are pretty obvious ones which we will insist on.
Goa is a pretty Westernised place with many that have moved there permanently, especially South Goa therefore security is strong. The house itself is in a village surrounded by other homes and also has manned security.
We’re sure you have others and if you do please let us know!
