Make Your World Bigger
Pilgrimage to India
For thousands of years India has been a powerful spiritual magnet that has attracted some of the most influential minds that have shaped human consciousness. India’s spiritual depth and power had a profound influence on spiritual luminaries such as Ramana Maharshi, Sri Aurobindo, Swami Vivekananda, Fr. Bede Griffiths, Swami Abhishiktananda, Fr. Anthony DeMello and many others who helped bridge the eastern and western spiritual traditions. You too can enhance your vision of life by going on a pilgrimage to south India. It is an opportunity to make your world bigger!
A pilgrimage is significantly different from a tour. Our focus is not primarily on tourist attractions, but on experiencing the spiritual vitality and daily life of India from within. We will live in an urban Hindu ashram and a rural Christian ashram, meet resident spiritual teachers, explore exotic temples, connect with Passionist ministries in remote villages, visit local families, and dine on regional foods.
This journey is an opportunity to experience and participate in the rich and diverse cultures and traditions of south India. It is for people who want to get off the beaten track and breathe the spiritual air of an amazing and unique country. Participants must be able to climb at least two-flights of stairs and walk up to one mile without challenge. Accommodations are simple, clean, and safe. However, this is not for those envisioning 4-star hotels.
