our journey begins in Kolkata, where you will be greeted by an Anahata representative. After a day of resting, we travel together to Rikhia in time for Diwali the Festival of Light, (27 October). Diwali is an opportunity to connect with the inner luminosity and experience the joy of India aglow with thousands of flickering lights. Here you will participate in the festival alongside guests and ashram residents.

Take your practice and understanding of the Pranic body deeper by participating in the Prana Vidya Retreat (1-7th November). Prana (energy) Vidya (knowledge) is an ancient and powerful meditation that deals with the system of prana for healing and spiritual awakening. Knowledge of Prana is knowledge of the universe. Everything moves because of Prana, it is source, means and destination.
During this 7-day course you will be introduced to the pranic system through daily asana, pranayama, mudra, bandha and Prana Vidya meditation sessions, including practical techniques for awakening the fields of energy present in the human structure.
Throughout your daily theory sessions, you will deepen your knowledge of this vital life force, discovering how the aspects of prana within the physical body and through regular sadhana can help you to develop the sensitivity required to feel and experience the nature of prana as a living flow of energy within one self. And how it can be directed to improve health and vitality.
