India – November 2 – 12, 2018

Join us for Diwali in India:  A very special group of men and women are coming together for this incredible journey!

If you look up the definition of “enlightened” it means to be awake.  This trip is designed to guide you in waking up to the true divine light that resides within all of us through many different experiences, and to support you to shine more brightly in the world.  Incredibly, our trip coincides with the Hindu Festival of Lights, Diwali, which happens once a year in India.  For many, this is a lifelong dream to be able to experience this beautiful holiday, that also pays homage to Lakshmi, Hindu Goddess of wealth, fortune and prosperity.

Imagine a sea of lights, floating down the Ganges, in Rishikesh, India. Tiny boats made from leaves, cloth wicks burning ghee and dancing in the current. This November you can be placing your own prayer boat in the river.  Register HERE.
