With Brooke Sullivan and Daisy Marquis
February 10 - 23, 2017
In the beloved and timeless cities of Rishikesh & Haridwar treat yourself to the magic of Kundalini Shakti and Alchemy of Mind.
Settled in comfort and away from the city center, we will dedicate time to ancient, transformational practices of The Himalayan Sages. Each day we build and nourish our spiritual health & vitality with home cooked Ayurvedic meals, yoga, meditation & chanting. Our practices are on the rooftops overlooking the sacred river Ganga, and we will enjoy chai tea breaks, Ayurvedic cooking lessons with our family & temple visits. Our hosts are the lovely women of the Johari House, Seema and Anu, the descendants of Sri Harish Johari, famous author, painter & tantric yogi.
This retreat includes temple tours in ancient, shakti-filled sites in two sacred cities, Rishikesh and Haridwar. In practical experience we will embrace the heart of Tantric Sadhana-which is the practice of weaving & integrating wisdom, power & bliss. We will visit Swami Rama’s Ashram, Vasishta’s Cave along the beaches of the Ganga, the Sri Yantra Temple, Maa Chandi Devi Temple (Chamunda), Maha Mrityunjaya Healing Temple, the sacred Rudraksha Tree of the Hari Har Ashram and Daksha Mandir-Temple Complex (including the 1st natural Shiva Lingham in the world, the 10 Wisdom Goddesses (Maha Vidyas) and a Saturn Temple.
For ceremony & song we will engage in special Aarthi (Fire Worship) to Maa Ganga and Private Group fire ceremonies in the Mother Temples.
This retreat includes all accommodations, practices & supplies, travel to and from New Delhi airport & the temples, cooking lessons, and 3 DAILY delicious home cooked Ayurvedic meals. Each person will go home transformed for the better… forever.
