Meeting Indian Culture
We will visit the surrounding countryside and enjoy meeting local people in the villages.
Delicious Indian Food
We enjoy delicious vegetarian food prepared specially for us in our own kitchen according to Western standards of hygiene.
We finish the retreat with a goodbye ceremony to celebrate the moment and always remember who we are.
You can get a taste of the magic of India by watching John David’s film Indian Masters - Blueprints for Awakening.
When John David lived in India with his spiritual Master Papaji he felt an inner message telling him to go and catch the great Indian Masters on film before they passed away. He interviewed sixteen Masters, asking each of them the same twelve questions based on Ramana Maharshi's teachings such as 'Who are you?' and 'Do you have a mind?'
The resulting Blueprints for Awakening archive, consisting of a Book, a Film and a Video Website, contains modern dialogues about ancient truth. John David's familiarity with this subject, combined with his many years of experience guiding spiritual seekers, create fascinating, lively interactions with each of the Masters.

John David's love and spirit is reflected in the wonderful people around him. I love them all.
I met John David in his deepness, honesty, generosity and lightness. I am very grateful for the retreat and for what is happening inside of me.
I very much enjoyed the mixture of the silent and dynamic energy. The cooperative and supporting nature especially of the organizing makes this retreat very special and memorable.
I took in John David's teaching and love, which traveled through the whole group. I am very likely to come again.
I love Arunachala, love John David, I am love.
It`s my second time and I just feel love and gratefulness which cannot be expressed in any words.
An unforgetable time, wonderful, intensive, deep.
I'm back at "normal" life and it's not so easy. I took John David's advice about not getting pulled into a story ... I'd like to ask John David if he would accept me to be my teacher. I feel I need him to continue this
When I came back to Paris, I felt so good. I realized how wonderful the retreat has been for the body, the mind and soul ...
I came the third time and again it has been magic again. I feel so enriched and content with myself and hope this will stay.
