This is a special Devi pilgrimage during the largest goddess festival on the planet, Dashain or called Navaratri, which is nine nights, and in Nepal, eleven to twelve days of worship of goddess Durga. The transformative journey begins in the Kathmandu Valley home to still-intact ancient Tantric ways and deep reverence and worship of Goddess. We will visit sacred goddess sites within the old town of Kathmandu and two historic sister cities.
We will stay in various settings, hotels and a renovated Newar traditional style home. Where we'll have the opportunity to experience firsthand the way of life since the Malla dynasty (12th through 18th century) heralding us back to the time of flourishing arts, architecture and culture. As we practice daily yoga and meditations and explore the rich heritage and arts of Nepal.
From here we will then make our way to Pokhara, the beautiful lakeside access point and home to a special Durga temple from where we will leave to embark on a three night and four day backpacking pilgrimage to multiple seats of Goddess. We will meditate and worship along an ancient trail that is still in use today by local devotees to Devi. We will stay in tea houses run by Shakti-empowered women and in homestays with kind and inspiring people of the mountains before we return back to Kathmandu to close our time together.
