The true care and heart showed by you set the stage for a journey that could not happen otherwise. I cannot imagine better "leaders", and you have set the bar quite high for any further group adventures - no wonder you have so many repeat customers!!

Come experience India as it was meant to be experienced. This is an extensive 16 day exploration and gay vacation of some of the best that India has to offer. From Delhi to Haridwar, Rishikesh to Jaipur, Pushkar to Varanasi and so much more! Visit sites of incredible historical, architectural and spiritual significance, while staying at some of the finest hotels available. Even more importantly participants will explore and experience the spiritual roots of this magical land and culture. As with all Spirit Journeys' adventures, participants will combine the joys and benefits of being on a vacation but with a "stop and smell the roses" kind of attitude. Conscious travel in this manner allows ample personal time for play, reflection, relaxing and appreciating the surrounding beauty. This adventure holds the possibility for travelers to reconnect to, or discover, their own spiritual roots and at the same time experience all the flavors and fun of India.
Throughout this journey there will be daily optional yoga practice (usually in the mornings) led by David Moreno (see David's bio below). David has studied extensively in India and he will share his in depth knowledge and understanding of India, the Hindu spiritual traditions and mythology, as well as Ayurvedic medicine. These times with David are an invaluable addition to this vacation in India!
