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 is my purpose?

What am I holding back?

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 the sole intention of cultivating your self-healing. This retreat is rooted in the traditional healing wisdom that you’d expect from India, but it also promises the modern facilities that will make this experience accessible and easy to absorb.

The retreat participants get to share their intentions and goals with Chandresh before the retreat begins. During the retreat, Chandresh works closely with each participant in bringing energy toward manifesting those intentions. In addition to the guidance, the participants also get their personalized mantra and an energized meditation bead as well prepared specially for their intentions.
