We are thrilled to resume our pilgrimages after COVID. 2023 was a fantastic experience for those who could travel with us to India in January and February. The theme for our 2024 pilgrimage is "Inspired by Love; Transformed By Light."
SIGNATURE PILGRIMAGE (FIRST HALF): Our signature pilgrimage will focus on the first part of this theme, "Inspired By Love," as we will draw from mystical practices, mainly Hindu, but from other traditions as well. We intend to include Jewish, Buddhist, Sufi, and medieval mystics of Christianity (Meister Eckhart, Hildegard of Bingen, etcetera) in our chanting and movement meditations.
PILGRIMAGE EXTENSION (SECOND HALF): During our extension, we will focus on "Transformed By Light," a deep practice of the Gayatri Mantra Sadhana. While many people know the sacred Gayatri mantra, there are practices "around" the chanting of the Gayatri, placements on the body, ritual gestures, and more to enhance our experience and make it magical. Imagine learning and practicing these components within our pilgrimage group and the spiritual hot spots we journey to in India.
PILGRIMAGE EXTENSION SPECIAL FEATURES: Our pilgrimage extension will include daily mantra practices, journeys to vibrant temples, rituals at sacred hot spots, and a mini-pilgrimage to "Temple Town." As the name suggests, "Temple Town," is a revered spiritual hotspot of numerous temples compacted into a tiny region, including UNESCO heritage temples and an off-the-beaten-path Tantric Healing Temple.
COMPLETE EXPERIENCE: Unlike jumping on a plane after the first half of our pilgrimage, the extension allows us to settle into our ashram routine and go deep into our meditation and spiritual practices. The total time for the complete experience (Signature Pilgrimage Plus Extension) is 28 to 30 days from our departure date as a group. Most of our pilgrims choose this option, although we understand when some need to return earlier. Our proven signature pilgrimage remains a staple.
ONLINE OPTION: We will focus on "Transformed By Light" practices during our new Yogic Mystery School year (June 2023 to May 2024) so our student community, many of whom travel with us to India, can prepare in advance. And for others, the online components can be a form of support after our return from India. All students who traveled with us to India on pilgrimage in January 2023 unanimously agree that our online courses are a fantastic supplement to the pilgrimage.
