Come Alive in INDIA - Land of Yoga and Ayurveda

This is Living Ayurveda

Back by popular demand, I am so excited for us to go on another unforgettable journey in India.  The memories of our first trip still linger on for everyone who attended.

Travelling in India will shift you in ways that you may not have ever imagined.  If its' one country you want to experience, I say it is India.

Months of planning, talking with my travel agency back and forth, perfecting all the details so we make this adventure as seamless and as enjoyable as possible for all, I can't believe that we are ready to do it again.  Planning this type of trip is no easy task, but the experiences and the transformation is worth it.

The places, and venues we have chosen are with the intention of creating experiences that will transform and shift you but with a lot of fun, laughter, joy and adventure mixed in.

There is a mystery to India.  You will feel it.  The diversity, the richness, the raw authentic vibe is so astonishing and refreshing.  The food is to die for - my only regret everytime I am back in the plane is why did I not eat more.  Only if my stomach could handle.

So here we are ready for another adventure of a lifetime. Look at the dates and details.  We will have a planning meeting where we weill discuss the nitty gritty details and get excited.

**** We have limitation in the numbers.  So get your name in****

Wonderful accomodation and food.  Felt very comfortable and taken care of.  The sound healing experience was healing and rejuvenating. The host were very loving.

Retreat is a way to detach from your day to day life. By going to another location and be together with others creates space and time to be open to receive new information, to learn and experience new concepts, new ways to grow and heal.  Being in a group setting is perfect to learn from other’s experiences and the collective energy is invigorating.  A chance to reset and recalibrate.  Also enjoyed the down time alone and time to participate in the outdoor hikes.

There were so many aha moments and revelations during the retreat.  Meena’s teachings are deep and I benefit greatly from her insight.  Thank you Meena

The facility is very well designed and conducive for such retreats.  Beautiful view all around and very comfortable. Food was healthy, creative and full of Spirit (energy)

Meena’s work is so important and more people need to learn the teachings.  I was able to use my previous practices and experiences to combine in the retreat teachings and connect more from my heart to the world around me.

The retreat reinforced my belief in opening our heart to the abundance of blessings that every person is gifted with.

The retreat was a beautiful experience.  Being in a space that allows silence from the outer world and then allows me to experience the silence in my inner world. The importance of actually creating time and space for doing the inner work can’t be overemphasized.  Being away from the day to day of my life and being in the environment of retreat and in nature and being with others on the same path and same intention to heal, and having a teacher like Meena Puri who is passionate about supporting others to heal and evolve – all of this contributed to my learning and healing during the 3 days.


The retreat center is beautiful and peaceful.  The meals are out of this world. I am grateful for this experience and for taking the time to be here.  Thank you Meena.  This experience made me committed to attend future retreats and to continue to do my inner work, self love and heal.

The meditation weekend retreat is quite worthwhile. Although it’s hard to carve a full weekend out of your busy life, your meditation practice is so fortified, that it keeps giving back, every day of your life. Not only do you have to stop buzzing around with daily activities, your time at the retreat is of such high quality, it’s like gaining time. I leave feeling richer, smarter and a little more evolved. This is my fourth year attending the retreat and every year, more doors open to me, and I love the opportunities they supply. And, most people think (myself included, in my first year) that time is going to drag on, and how can you possibly meditate so much. But, time absolutely flies by and it is not all meditation. Most time we meditate for at a time is 30 min. There is discussion, Yoga and sharing of your experiences. It is difficult to describe, but it truly is enriching.

Attending the retreat was a great reminder of the importance of prioritizing meditation and connecting with my heart. I loved the fact that we had groups from across the country on the retreat as well, really felt the collative energy as well.  We have installed so many of your  suggestions in our lives.  I loved the chapatis and chai at the retreat – a good reminder of your book.

I realized that rest is very important mentally, physically and emotionally.  I re-committed to trying to get more rest in my day to day life, better sleep. I recommitted to putting more meditation into my life…I think it can be very restorative and calming

I think meditation can promote positive change in terms of self control, self love, self care and one success builds on the next success and so on and so on. I fell more calm and peaceful.  I felt less reactive.  The group itself (both in the room and remotely) also inspired me to continue practicing meditation.

Just “doing” the meditation, having a scheduled time that I join a group, forced me to commit to the intention.  Left to my own devices I do find it challenging to keep up a practice, but I am trying.  I’ve meditated 3 x in the last week after attending the retreat.

Loved the cauliflower and sautéed onion dish, the naan, the soup, all of it.  But the cauliflower dish and the naan was my favorite.  The food is another goal, its another example of healthy living and healthy eating.

I so enjoyed the winter 2020 retreat.  It was nourishing, challenging, enlightening, and heartfelt.  Thank you for tending each of us and for tending the process. I got much needed rest and new appreciation for a rested nervous system.  I appreciated the instruction and explanations from not only my teacher, Meena, but from her teacher as well.

I was inspired to continue to develop my practice.  The support of teachers and community is inspiring.  I was inspired by the presence of love and humor. There is such amplification and encouragement when practicing with a group!

Meena is nourishing literally and figuratively!   The aromas, the flavors, her attentiveness to each person at her table — all are fuel for the body and soul.   She created dishes from the pantry of her heart and soul.  Some of her recipes can be found in her cookbook (that is actually an “eating for life” book).  Eating with Meena is truly fulfilling.

I realized the importance of deep rest and relaxation. I have been more diligent about resting after my meditation.  Paul Dugliss is a great teacher and being with others was important as I learned so much from them.  The bonus was experiencing and enjoying food from Meena’s kitchen.

At the beginning of the weekend, my mind and spirit was full of all the troubles around me and I felt sick. Now, at the end of the retreat, I feel full, content and at peace. I feel strongly grounded and ready to live my life.

A wonderful experience to spend a weekend with like minded students learning and sharing. The weekend meditation allows me to fully immerse and have a deeper experience. It provides a wonderful opportunity to recharge and refocus on the meditation practice. Meena, as always, combines the learning with her wonderful insights.
