Travelling first to  the state  of Rajasthan, to the beautiful small and humble town of Nawalgarh,  followed  by Jaipur the ‘Pink City’ to celebrate the Sufi Music Festival.  From here we  will travel to the state of Uttarakhand, where will be based in the yoga capital of the  world – Rishikesh. Nestled in the foothills of the Himalayas on the river Ganges – (Ganga Ma is the correct name meaning Mother Ganga), Rishikesh has a long history of spiritual practice in yoga and meditation – optional for those who wish to participate.

A bit about our presenters:

 catherine and tripathi 1

After 23 journeys to India since 2005, India is my favourite second home..always welcoming, she continues to gift me with pearls of wisdom, inspiration and love.

A professional artist and Art Educator I have spent the last 20 years travelling, teaching and painting. I am dedicated to showing you the ‘real’ India full of heart, creativity and joy.

Catherine has a B.Ed in Visual Arts from The University of Melbourne, Australia and is represented by Spiro Grace Art Rooms in Brisbane. Her next solo exhibition of works influenced by her many journeys between East and West It’s (still) a Beautiful World : 22 August – 12 Sept 2015 www.sgar.com.au 

Mr Ajay Tripathi

Mr Tripathi is one of my oldest, most wisest and loyal Indian friends. A guardian angel to me since 2005 when I first arrived in India. Of the 23 journeys to India he has only missed 1 pick up from the airport! And only because he was away at the time. A dedicated spiritual being to higher causes, an advocate for womens’ rights, the education of young girls in his native village to ensure they can survive, is truly remarkable. A follower of Gandhi, a joyful and ever optimistic being, I am truly delighted to have him accompany us. He will personally collect you all from the airport so that you arrive safely and with celebration for the 2 weeks ahead…
