I'd like to share with you the trip I'm organizing with my friends/partners in India, as part of our efforts to establish Soham, our non-profit organization...
This trip will be wonderful for those who are interested in having an authentic experience of the place they���re visiting, witnessing alternative lifestyles, and learning about alternative and holistic healing modalities. Please see the message below for more details.
I am available to meet and/or speak by phone if you like to learn more about it. Email me if interested!
Thanks a lot and best wishes!
TRAVEL TO INDIA AND SUPPORT A NON-PROFIT!!!
Do you fancy a memorable visit to the magic Indian Himalayas this summer?
Do you dream of regenerating your mind, spirit, and body - without spending a fortune?
Are you a responsible traveler and wish to support the locals instead of big tourist agencies?
AND you'd love for your participation to support a great Non-profit??
If you answered "yes" to any of these questions... keep reading!
The trip you will be taking this June (last 2 weeks of the month) will be a wonderful escapade from the Western world and a plunge into a beautiful area of the world, still pristine and peaceful. You will be traveling to Nainital, "The glittering jewel in the Himalayan necklace", blessed with scenic natural splendor and varied natural resources. Nainital, popularly known as the Lake district of India, is situated in the Indian state Uttranchal.
You will explore alternative lifestyles, delving into the world of people who have a different way of living, thinking and relating. You will be staying 2 weeks in proximity to a local family - Shruti Kher (dear friend and co-founder of "Soham") and her parents, who own cottages next to their home. The Kher's lineage is very fascinating, tracing back to Indian mythology, and they will share with you much about the myths, traditions, and stories of the place.
Moreover, Shruti is an extraordinary healer and teacher, whose life philosophy and understanding is like no one else's I've ever come across yet (and I've been around the world quite a bit!). She will be available to do healing to anyone who is interested and/or hold group healing/discussions. Shruti is also a wonderful jewelry designer who works with love and joy - so that these qualities are transferred to the wearer - and with environmental consciousness (http://picasaweb.google.com/itsme.celine/ShrutiSJewelry#). She has a deep understanding of the stones��� properties and which stones one might need depending on specific issues/imbalance.
During your 2-week stay, you will also be taken on tour of the major attractions in the area, and will have the opportunity to do yoga asanas, body & energy work with Shruti in a dedicated cottage. This trip will be wonderful for those who wish to relax, meditate, ease into the feeling of the place they're experiencing, and value developing genuine relationships.
Shruti and I, along with other partners, are establishing a non-profit called "Soham", which will initiate work in India and Nepal. As we don't have a website yet, you can find out more about Soham here: http://docs.google.com/Doc?id=dmbqw35_5hn9gwqhq.
Information on Nainital and the project we seek to kickstart there is also found in this document.
The all-inclusive cost per person for this 2-week trip is about $2,900 per person for a group of 12 people or around $3,900 for a group of 6 people (depending on the final Denver-Delhi airfare); these are minimum-maximum number of people we would take.
Your participation in this trip will enable us to significantly move forward in setting up the project in India.
