India 2017

This August, we are offering you the opportunity to participate in a 2 week guided tour of India, for less than 1000 euros.  The journey will have three sides: cultural/historical, spiritual, and social.  We have designed the tour for those who are interested in an authentic experience of Indian life: in the villages, homes and streets of India.  There will, most probably, be cultural challenges, adventures and discoveries.  The tour will start in the desert state of Rajasthan, where will will explore the cultural, historical and artistic treasures of Jaipur.  From there, we will pass through Jhansi, the famous city of the warrior queen ‘Rani of Jhansi.’  Then we will visit the spiritual centre and rural development project of ‘Ananda Nagar’ in West Bengal, where we will pass some days exploring village life, meditating and practising yoga.  We will also organize some social-service activities in the local village schools.  Finally, we will go to Kolkata, a city of hospitality, art and music.
