About this trip

Join us on an amazing journey of spiritual awakening through the magical lands of the Himayalas, India

India  is mesmerising in its wealth of history, mythology, religion,  spirituality, humanity and nature. It’s a place strung with jewel-like  places of beauty and sacredness, where the divine meets the mundane on  your average street corner.

From our deep love for India we are  opening an invitation to host a group of special travellers to a 22-day  meditative tour taking you through the peaks and foothills of the  Himalayas, all the way to the sacred crystal waters of the Ganges. A  unique blend of retreat and tour like no other.

During this  expansive journey we will melt with infinite skies, turquoise waters,  immersing ourselves in the most authentic Indian mystical realms,  connecting with the inner and outer pearls: the hearts of our local  hosts, the hidden corners we’ve discovered and love… meeting with our  inner depth and beauty through meditation to enrich your experience. The  group shares the path of inner transformation together discovering  inner pearls, you’ll carry these jewels with you forever.

This  tour brings travelers a unique opportunity to explore Kashmir, Leh,  Ladakh, Manali and Rishikesh, in a conscious encounter with the richness  of Mother India and each other – to find the inexplicable beauty of  this sacred place on Earth where we allow ourselves to melt into the  vastness of the rooftop of the world.

“The  very word Himalayas makes my heart beat faster. To me it is not  something just physical, it carries the whole heritage of the  spirituality for centuries. From the days of Upanishads till today  Himalaya has produced more enlightened people than any other piece of  land in the world.” – Osho


Himalayan Odyssey Highlights

This  22 day journey is like no other, a retreat, adventure and spiritual  pilgrimage all in one – this will make for a month you won’t forget.  Here are a few of the highlights:

  • Go deeper into yourself, in meditation, in connection and exploration.
  • We'll  share daily meditation from mystics from a range of paths and schools –  including Osho Meditations and Tantra awareness practices,  Kashmir-Shivaism, Tibetan Buddhism, Himalayan Yoga, and more.
  • We’ll  travel to connect with a Ladakhi Oracle. This wonderful, humble woman  performs ceremonies for healing and cleansing. During a special ritual  she enters a trance state and a diety enters her body and she gives a  transmission to those who have come for ceremony. We have no idea what  she will bring forth to share. A group session where you’ll have the  opportunity to ask for insight on your own path.
    We're lucky to be personally connected to her as she rarely holds ceremonies for outsiders and  we feel privileged to be able to share this space with her.
  • A  multi-day camping trek through Himalayan valleys, a breathtaking  experience immersed in an untouched natural environment. Disappear into  the openness of the night skies.
  • Feel the feminine shakti of the  River Ganges in the home of Indian ‘seers’ in Rishikesh. Where the  Beatles fell in love with India and spent time recording an album.

This is a true grounded spiritual adventure for the body, mind and soul.

Throughout  this journey, Omkar will share meditations and deep inner enquiry and transformation practices to deepen your experience, also working with individuals as well as the group. Connecting with authentic spiritual  teachers and guides along the way, giving a practical and insightful  taste of Indian spirituality.
All meals are provided on this 22 day  journey. You will get a taste of  delicious Indian vegetarian cuisine to stimulate the palate and we know  all the best spots.
All accommodation and transportation is  included. Accommodation is a blend of homestays, high quality mountain  camps, luxury camping, guest houses, boutique hotels and quality hotels  along the way.
