28th October – 4th November 2019
More dates to come!
Join us on a 7-day pilgrimage to India’s sacred goddess temples.
We’ll visit some of Himachel Pradesh’s most beautiful villages, stopping at sacred Shakti Peeth temples, connecting to Mother Nature through hiking, astrology, sound healing, kundalini yoga, tantra and meditation, all while learning about Goddess Durga, Hinduism’s supreme shakti.
Imagine waking up feeling excited about life. Ready to create and connect, empowered and filled with love, for yourself and others. This is what it’s like to be connected with your divine feminine energy.
We’ll be doing what’s known as “Shakti Sadhana”, a spiritual pilgrimage to sacred goddess temples so we can discover the divine feminine within us.
This is a wonderful opportunity, not just for experiencing some of India’s most sacred goddess sites, but for our own spiritual growth. We’ll start the trip consciously by setting an intention. This will be different for each of us – maybe you want to be braver in business or perhaps you’re overcoming a problem in your life. During the trip, we’ll complete powerful exercises that open us up to divine and allow self-reflection, acceptance and healing.
Sacred Temples & Natural Beauty
Over the course of 7 days, we’ll visit Kurukshetra, the famous site where Lord Krishna delivered the Bhagavad Gita, plus villages including Chintapurni, Jawalamukhi and Chamunda, home to some of Hinduism’s most mystical Shakti Peeth goddess temples.
We’ll practice kundalini yoga along the way, connect through guided meditations, mantra chanting and sound healing, Hindu and Tantrik teachings and astrology circles and take part in sacred puja rituals, all designed to help you on your quest to meet the goddess herself and develop her energy within you.
What is a Shakti Peeth? What is Shakti?!
Not to worry! If you don’t know anything about Shakti, Hinduism, Kundalini, Tantra or India in general, we’ll teach you this and so much more about the role of the divine feminine within Hindu mysticism, there’s a great deal of fascinating symbolism, mythology and cosmic knowledge to explore!
And it’s not just for ladies! If you’re a divine masculine looking to connect to your divine feminine side – you’re more than welcome too! The Goddess is within us all, she is our creative, nurturing, intuitive side. She wants us all to connect with her and unleash our shakti power.
Our combined experience means you’ll have daily kundalini yoga classes, mantra chanting and sound healing, tantrik and Hindu mythology teachings, guided meditations and pranayama, astrology and tarot workshops, readings and intention setting and mindset shifting exercises along the way, to dig deeper and connect to your shakti side.
Together we’ve completed countless pilgrimages and are always seeking the next spiritual destination. We specialise in remote temples – ones that have incredible beauty and strong spiritual energy, but for some reason, are not popular with foreign travellers. We want to share these places, so we’ve taken people to some of India & Nepal’s most mystical but unknown sites, and this trip is our best yet!
