Years ago I visited India as a young woman and the experience permeated my soul in a way that I can’t quite put into words.

This retreat is all about celebrating each woman’s heart, dharma, creative gifts and joy.  I can’t think of a more perfect way to visit this country together. A once in a lifetime opportunity.

Only 12 spots to keep the connection and container in harmony. Choose from a private king-sized bedroom or share a room with one other woman (two beds). All levels of experience welcome.

What’s Included:

~ Accommodation at the 5-star palace Lakshmi (goddess of prosperity) hotel whose intention is inclusivity and pure love!

~ Breakfast and dinner (a plethora of choices from delicious Indian cuisine). You can choose your own lunch from a variety of options at the hotel.

~ All workshops with Alena, including intuitive painting, breath-work for vitality and clarity, meditation, movement, and abundance/joy circles.

~ A variety of culture explorations including visits to the local art shops where they paint with natural materials, local palace, Saree fittings and shopping, sunset boat ride, henna-painting, and more surprises!

~ One facial or coconut body scrub/wrap at the hotel’s spa. You may add on spa services if you wish.

~ Transportation to the hotel if arriving within a certain time frame (otherwise reasonable transportation can be arranged).

~ Bonus offering of Riddhi (a beautiful student and artist from India who now lives in London) and her mother who have generously invited us to their lake resort for a few nights after the retreat. This is an incredible blessing to visit India in a more intimate way from a lovely family who lives there!
