Urban, touristy India can overwhelm you with stimulation. And the Himalayas can be calming and deeply spiritual. At our retreats we strive for balance. In our all-inclusive retreats, we meet you at the Delhi airport and take you on a day-trip to the Taj Mahal. Then we take you to a quiet getaway, the Himalayan Writing Retreat, a muse to writers from all over the world.
On a clear day you have an unparalleled 270 degree view of Himalayan peaks 5000 ft taller than Denali. In this serenity, you channel India and all its chaotic vibrancy into your writing. In the Himalayas, you continue to discover a sliver of India everyday but in a calm, rural setting with time on hand. Experienced mentors and like-minded writers nourish your writing, as does the popcorn on Kitschy Bollywood film night. Short outings and wilderness hikes enrich your experience while leaving you enough time to write. Yoga completes the experience with sessions offered every morning and evening for you to choose from. The yoga instructor Kavitha Elango is a well-respected professional with her own studio in the city.
We have two retreats coming up in the spring of 2020 : The Fiction Writers Retreat, and the Memoir Writers Retreat . To keep the experience rich and personal, we limit participation to ten in each retreat.
From your arrival at Delhi airport to your departure, our retreats include all transfers, food, sightseeing and stays (twin shared), Yoga and even tips for your 10 days here. International flights are not included.
Paula Younger leads this retreat, and Chetan Mahajan supports her. Paula is an award-winning teacher and writer from the lighthouse Writers Workshop. To learn more about the retreat, and to apply, click on the Learn More button below.
