Rishikesh – Haridwar – Dharamshala – Delhi
Dear friends, We are happy to share with you the spiritual beauty of India, in a 12 day group tour in Northern India.
We’ve chosen this track because Northern India and the Himalayas are so rich in spiritual culture and encompass so many places blessed by Shiva. We’ve felt ourselves the energy of these places and the way it has worked in our lives.
We’ve created this beautiful journey with the desire to take us all deeper into the light of our hearts and connect with our real space and to experience a different way of living.
By Shiva’s blessing, everyone will receive the energy of these sacred places and touch the real peace in their heart.
With love, Amit and Yoli Om Namah Shivaya
