In the fullness of our modern lives, the sacred is often obscured by our work, phones, email and everyday stress and responsibilities. Its all too easy to lose sight what matters most.

But the sanctity is always there. Sometimes stepping outside the familiar can be just the radical change in perspective we need to bring the divine into sharp focus.


Yoga, Meditation & Connection

This is a retreat for women who are ready to take their practice to the next level.  For real.  

We will spend several hours a day immersed in meditation, chanting, yoga and powerful women’s practices.  We will explore the myths, study the iconography and most importantly do the practices specifically designed to awaken and embody the energies of several of the goddesses of yoga.  

Riding the endless waves of grace flooding through the hills of Northern India, we will let go of our resistance, release old habits and surrender to the sacred.  

Be prepared to free blocked energy in your body, share your heart, and peel away the layers to allow your true Self to shine. 




Rishikesh, The Yoga Capitol of the World   

Its easy to fall in love with the unabashed honesty of India. She is so much like a woman with all of her moods & flavors, sacredness & sorrow, chaos & grace. Every moment there is another opportunity to experience the wild and authentic mess of the conditional realm, and unquestioningly feel how perfectly it dances within the breath of the infinite.

Here, everything pulses with the energy of thousands of years of practice. The feel of the land, the hearts of the people, the smell in the air... it's truly indescribable.




Anand Lok Retreat Center, Gateway to the Himalayas

Our journey will take place in this beautiful retreat center in the foothills of this magnificent mountain range.

The magic in the air here is palpable. Surrounded by exquisite mountains and nestled right above the sacred Ganga river you will feel drawn towards deep practice and communion with the divine.

Quiet, focused retreat time will be balanced with a few group excursions to nearby towns, temples and schools.  You will also have some free time for your own practice, adventures and explorations. 


Exploring India 

India can be as heartbreaking as she is beautiful. One of our intentions is to support one another in keeping our eyes and hearts open to all of it. When we stop turning away from the suffering in the world we will often be more inspired to help make real chang e.

After fully immersing ourselves in the journey inward during the retreat, we will venture out into the reality of India.  Endeavoring to embrace her light and her shadow, as we have our own, we will drink in the crowded streets, holy ceremonies, vibrant colors, flavorful food, and unique gifts of this magnificent country.
