12 Day Vedic Temple Arts Immersion for Women in North India

About us

We invite you to fully let go of the mundane and step into the sacred. Dr. Katy has designed a curriculum that blends Sanskrit chanting, Vedic ritual, Mindfulness Meditation, Yin/Flow Yoga and Pilgrimage to AWAKEN your inner goddess, RESTOREyour soul and NOURISH your higher dreams and intentions.

When you return, you’ll have gained not only a life-transforming experience (the only reason to travel to India)—but a set of skills to share in creating ritual spaces for invoking the Goddess in your home and sacred circles.

"They say when the gods want to meet they do so in the Himalayas. And I've experienced that..." ~ Miriam, Retreat Participant, Holland

Venue Highlights

Dunagiri Retreat, where heaven meets the earth!

An eco yoga retreat center for groups and individuals, we delight in hosting travelers seeking a reunion with self through nature.

Set against a stunning backdrop of Himalayan snow peaks, offering you the luxury of nature’s splendor, we let you discover that beauty reveals the soul itself!

Located in Uttarakhand, known as 'Devbhumi'- the land of the Gods - we are a 'shakti-peetha' or an energy center, home of the Goddess.

Here, it is believed, the distance between heaven and earth shrinks, the veil between the two worlds becomes so "thin", one is actually able to perceive something of heaven itself, receiving a glimpse of the glory of God.
