Into The Woods

A Himalayan Meditation Retreat

6 nights/7 Days

6th April to 12th April

Location Binsar, Uttarakhand

Beginner and advanced meditators are welcome.

“I went to the woods because I wished to live deliberately, to front only the essential
facts of life, and see if I could not learn what it had to teach, and not, when I came to

die, discover that I had not lived.”
Henry Thoreau

Are you ready to take a walk into the woods? Dive into the deepest parts of yourself?
Explore the landscapes of the psyche; Amble along the quiet streams; Discover wild

hidden terrain. It’s time for a joyful adventure!


The intention of this retreat is to create space for deep meditation as well as self-reflection. To offer you guided inward journeys as well as outer voyages. A time for solitude as well as camaraderie.

In each moment to be where you are, to feel fully alive. This is an immersive retreat, with a spacious itinerary to help you practice intuitive living. Where meditation is not just a technique, but a way of life. It is to help you come home to yourself, awaken to your heart’s wisdom.

It’s meant for those who would like to have a meaningful pause for rest, enjoyment as well as self-awareness. Bathe in the grace of Mother Nature, meditate in the lap of the Himalayan forests and listen lovingly and deeply to your mind, body and spirit.

About the Setting

Binsar Wildlife Sanctuary

As winter unfolds into spring, the mystical forests of Binsar turns into the canvas of the Divine. The red rhododendrons arrive as a reminder that there are cycles of blossoming under blue skies, the mighty Kumaoni ranges silently appear and disappear through the clouds, revealing its stillness through every passing moment. On the hiking trails, acquaint with what nature is ready to reveal to you. A variety of birds, rich flora and fauna, the distant growl of a leopard and if you are lucky the magnificent peaks of Trishul, Nanda Devi amongst the mighty Himalayan range. This region has been the mecca of legends, for centuries gurus, writers, artists, philosophers and seekers have been attracted to this space. It is also said that close by is the Van Allen’s Belt that has an enormous geomagnetic field, endowed with the cosmic energy like that of UK’s Stonehenge and Peru’s Machu Pichu. Swami Vivekananda to Timothy Leary and Bob Dylan, Cat Stevens, Babaji, Lama Anagarika Govinda, Ram Das are the earlier explorers of the energy this space has to offer.
