Take a moment to breathe. Breathe in. Breathe out. Listen to your awareness.

Now, ask yourself these questions:

Does my soul seek long-lasting healing?

How often do I feel the desire to just be and let go?

Is my heart carrying any pain or grudges?

Am I willing to break my norms and embrace the conscious rebel that I am?

Who am I?

What do I want? What do I need?

How do I serve?

If you seek the answers to any of the questions above, this experience is for you! This isn’t just any standard retreat to India. This sacred experience is being planned for you with a lot of love, and with the sole intention of cultivating your own self-healing. This retreat is rooted in the traditional healing wisdom that you’d expect from India, but it also promises modern facilities that will make this experience accessible and easy to absorb.

What to expect during the Break the Norms 2.0 retreat in the Himalayas:

  • Daily meditations, group discussions, and one-on-one sessions with Chandresh.

  • Mantra and meditation sessions held by the River Ganges.

  • A signature Break the Norms mantra ceremony facilitated by mantra scholars based in the Himalayas, under the guidance of Chandresh.

  • Opportunities to serve food to and witness the lives of 150+ Himalayan monks.

  • A visit to Rishikesh, the yoga capital of India.

What sets Break the Norms 2.0 apart from other retreats to India?

  • Chandresh grew up in India, learning from the masters and practicing these very rituals on daily basis. The Himalayas is his playground, and you can rest assured that you will have an incredibly authentic experience.

  • Signature rituals such as the mantra ceremony, serving food to the monks, and other similar moments make this retreat a powerful experience.

  • Accommodations are so close to the River Ganges that you can literally start and end your day sitting amongst its presence.

  • We could go on … but you get it!
