This was my second trip to India with Maria, and first time in Varanasi. Varanasi is a truly magical city, with lots to explore. The hotel staff, professor, and guides were all top notch, and we were very well taken care of. Big thanks to Maria and her team!

This was such a unique, inspiring and transformative experience! There is no place on earth quite like the sacred city of Varanasi.
This was an experience of a lifetime! The physical journey was nothing compared to the psychological and emotional one. Fantastic staff, knowledgeable and experienced teachers, and generous hosts made the journey heartfelt and memorable! Let go and give in to learning and experiencing another part of the world. Thank you, Maria.
This was a once in a lifetime trip for me! Maria made this trip exceptional with her knowledge of India and the culture. I am forever grateful to have had this experience. Namaste🙏🌟
This was the trip of a lifetime for me. Maria organized a beautiful journey for all participants. Her knowledge of India and the sacred pilgrimages, myths and temples shine through. Everything about this trip was perfect. Everything was magic.
