About This Event

Allow yourself to relax into being as you enjoy daily yoga and meditation, evening satsangs and the gorgeous natural surrounds of Rishikesh Valley.

Be fully alive and present as you taste the adventure that Northern India has to offer, from mountain walks, whitewater rafting and sunrise over the Himalayas, to shopping and satsang in Rishikesh!

Over 10 days and nights you’ll be guided to look within and enjoy simply being, through yoga, meditation, satsang and mindful activity. Plus, enjoy all the fun, adrenaline and excitement of outdoor adventure. A magical combination of inner and outer adventure awaits!

Teachings are non-sectarian. Meditations and satsang will be based in mindfulness and self-enquiry of a non-dual nature, supporting you to go deeply within and be open to life as it flows.

Why Retreat?

We asked people why they go on retreat, here's what they said:

Because I sometimes work up to 16 hours a day, and need time to stop and breathe. Mary
