Learn to cook authentic Indian dishes that will ignite your palate and infuse your soul with an appetite for the adventures to come 

FEEL

The walls of the ancient palaces and feel the spirit infused into their ancient and sacred mortar. This is the kind of trip that will enliven your soul as we experience the beauty of the land and connect with its inhabitants like the rescued elephants at Elephantastic sanctuary. There we will paint, bathe and feed our elephant friends connecting with their majestic and human spirits. Enjoy the relaxing Ayurvedic massage in Rishikesh during our 5 night stay at the Samadhi Yoga Ashram.

Be uplifted and transported to a different place and time as you enjoy the Sufi devotional music known as Quwwali in New Dehli. Listen to the history and wisdom of cities through songs and ceremonies that have existed for centuries full of spiritual lessons in a fairytale like setting. 

SIGHT

Witness the holy and breath taking Ganga Aarti, a sacred fire ceremony as we float on the river by boat and experience all that the festival of colours known as Holi, has to offer. Live vibrantly as one during Holi where everyone is one colour with foreigners and locals alike enjoying the throwing of beautiful scented powdered dyes. See local life and traditions up close and enjoy a dinner with a local family for an authentic Indian experience. Gaze at the beauty of the Taj Mahal at dusk to enjoy the truly beautiful wonder that stands before you. Feel the awe of seeing wonders of the world many only ever get to imagine.
