Stepping into Presence

Himalayan Meditation and Hiking workshop

20th April to 25th April 2022

Recently, have you had a conversation, a moment where you were fully aware?  A walk where you were not thinking of other times and other places?

Today many live a multitasking life. We manage several things without being fully present.

Do you feel yourself pulled in multiple directions and not being happy with anyone of them? Do you want to break free, to feel lighter, more joyful, clearer?

Come hiking with us in the Himalayas. Meditation will teach you to live with awareness in the present. Allow yourself to be, to have authentic conversations with likeminded people.

5 days of learning new tools for a healthier and more aware way of life. Join Unplugged Trails for this retreat.

HOW?

In a non-judgmental environment learn how to meditate or deepen your practise, hike in awareness, enjoy silent walks, explore open dialogue, authentic expression, enjoy the company of seekers, connect deeply and spend time in contemplative writing and reading.

All this amidst Himalayan peaks, in a secluded village in Parvati Valley.

A 5 day escape in April 2022. This retreat is for those dedicated souls inclined towards challenging their minds and bodies and who enjoy the simple life of living in tents and mountain Homestays without phones.

WHEN AND WHAT?

Your preparation for the retreat begins the moment you register with us. We will provide you with an exercise schedule and training hikes in Pune (optional). We meet online for discussions and introduction to meditation. After 2-3 months of training you join us at Pulga Village in Parvati Valley( 2500 m).

The training is very important to build up your stamina for a stress free trek/hike.

THE DAYS:

We start the day with an hour of morning meditation. We do local day hikes with periods of rest, self-enquiry, meditation, pranayama, writing, discussions and reflections. (Detailed itinerary will be shared once you register)
