Soul Empowerment Yatra
Awakening and Balancing Your Shiva/Shakti
For Women & Men
April 18-26, 2021
For eons people have traveled to the East to find themselves in search of “something.” India calls those whom are ready to hear the Divine. Do you hear your soul’s calling? Is there a yearning in your heart? India is a catalyst for deep transformation. This is a place to AWAKEN to you. Feed your soul and empower yourself to become the best essence of you. You hear the messages of the ancient gurus as you explore the foothills of the Himalayas, considered the abode to the very Gods; these mountains have secrets and mysteries that are transmitted from their very presence. For ages, the ones who knew journeyed to the mountains for answers, for wisdom, for the unknown. The secrets are now accessible to all, but there is nothing like being Initiated and stepping foot in the expansive foothills of the Himalayas. You will not come back the same. Something shifts, something transforms, it is subtle, it is magical and it is personal. This inner spiritual journey to your soul is individual. But when you join with other like-minded people also exploring, also feeling the call, they enhance your journey. You walk hand and hand and find the pieces of you that have remained dormant… Waiting for the day, waiting to hear the call. You have heard it. India awaits.
Our journey will begin in the Himalayan foothills beside the breathtaking sacred Ganges River, allowing you the space to reawaken and learn ancient practices to activate your life force, Shiva/Shakti energy of love and empowerment. We are embodiments of this cosmic universal energy, the divine feminine and masculine flow that is alive in both men and women. We hold these energies within us and when united, there’s a complete balance, joy and presence within our very being. You will strengthen your relationship to the Divine and become receptive to experience yourself and this life as sacred. Join others who are collectively waking up to their true essence, and create the inner foundations to experience profound love, nourishment, vibrancy, connection, and a life infused with deep meaning.
We invite you to join us on this amazing and unforgettable spiritual pilgrimage to one of the most majestic countries in the world, a country full of mysticism, colorful textiles, exotic tastes, sacred ceremonies, beautifully adorned elephants, snake charmers, rich historical heritage, spiritual abodes, ancient rituals, charmingly decorated rickshaws, and immense architectural beauty. When you go to sacred places filled with spiritual connection, you step back in time. This is a place in which time has forgotten, it’s a mix of an ancient and modern world. Unlike other ancient civilizations, the culture of India is still vibrantly alive today in its rituals, dances, and ceremonies.
This journey will bring you back to your heart, renew your energy, purify your soul and inspire you to create your own path by discovering, honoring and embodying your gifts.
