The experience exceeded my expectations. I met incredible women from around world. We talked, did art, learned about important causes, shopped, did yoga, danced, ate delicious food, provided a safe space for each other to share their hearts, did workshops, sang songs. It was togetherness Maximus and I LOVED every second. The rooms are large. I felt safe. It was awesome.

The gathering of women at the festival was unforgettable. The ashram accommodation was still being finished as we arrived, but the rooms were spacious and facilities adequate. The atmosphere was lively and warm and far outweighed the austerity. I would highly recommend Attending the next festival.

I'll be back! Excellent food and wonderful entertainment. Thank you for arranging this festival. AMAZING! Just a word to the wise: be sure to pack REALLY warm clothes, there are no heaters in the rooms and it's freezing. But we learned to be one with nature..... :)

The ashram met and exceeded my expectations in every way possible. The absolute highlight of my experience was meeting so many wonderful people, from the staff, karma yogis, instructors, and fellow global participants. Each day exceeded the day before, from the lovingly grown (Ramuji) prepared (Papu) and served (Champa & Jagdish) food to the Wellness Center treatments (thank you, Shreejan, Jagdish, & Champa). Daily Puja and Satsang deeply touched my soul and being in the loving presence of Guruji was a spiritual awakening. Shopping excursion and Indian ‘fast food’ for car trip back to the ashram was a delightful day and the camel caravan and the sleepover at the safari camp was the perfect conclusion to entire experience. I may have returned from the ashram, but I still hold a piece of it in my heart and I’m forever grateful for the amazing experience. Thank you. Namaste, Ann Blum
