Join us on an amazing journey to India. Walk in the footsteps of ancient sages. Meditate along the banks of the Narmada River. Meet an amazing astrologer, who reads predictions written about you thousands of years ago on ancient palm leafs. See the Sun rise from the Taj Mahal. Make a pilgrimage to two of India's Jyotirlingas.
Our journey will be in two parts:
Heart of India
February 16 - March 2, 2015
This is the main trip. We will visit Delhi, Agra (the Taj Mahal) Jaipur, Pushkar, Karohi, (the Brighu Astrologer) Udaipur, Bhubaneshwar, Karkatpur (the Copper Plate Astrologer), and Puri. This trip is designed to hit all of the important sites that most people associate with India, such as the Taj Mahal and the Amber Fort, however, it also gets off the beaten path as we visit two rural villages, where we will try to meet a couple of very interesting astrologers who give readings in extraordiary ways. We can't make promises about this part of the trip. We can only go there and see if we can meet them. It's an adventure.
Cost: Twin Sharing - $4151
Single Supplement - $1368
Transition Day Cost: If you are taking both trips, you will need accomodations for the night of March 2nd. If you are departing after the first trip, depending on the time of your flight home, you might also want to stay overnight on March 2nd. The cost of accomodations and food for March 2nd will be arranged independently and the cost will vary depending on your choice of accomodations.
Light of the Narmada
March 3 - 9, 2015
This is the extension trip. While the first trip is for experiencing the many amazing destination of India, this trip is about experiencing the subtle, spiritual energy of India. We will mainly stay in Maheshwar, a pilgrimage spot on the Narmada, one of India's oldest and most sacred rivers. Staying in comfortable and exotic cottage-tents on the banks of the Narmada, we will decrease the activity level in order to experience the subtle, ethereal energy of this part of India. We will start the trip with two days of retreat in Maheshwar. Then we will visit Omkareshwar, one of India's twelve Jyotir Lingas. Then we will return to Maheshwar for another day of retreat. On the last day, before returning to Delhi, we will visit another Jyotir Linga Temple in Ujjain.
