A journey in India with Thom Knoles

8 - 18 January 2020


In this year’s Rishikesh Retreat, Thom Knoles, my teacher and the world’s authority on Vedic Meditation and wisdom, will will awaken the truth about abundance and share techniques for breaking the hypnosis of poverty consciousness, allowing for the unleashing of affluence and maximum potential in our lives.

The village of Rishikesh is nestled in the foothills of the Himalayas, on the banks of the holy river Ganga and has been home to great saints and Vedic masters for thousands of years. It is in Rishikesh that Thom was trained by Maharishi Mahesh Yogi, at the ashram that we will have an opportunity to visit.

Ganga Kinare, which is located on the banks of the holy Ganga (Ganges) river, will be our modern “ashram” for the ten days of the retreat.

Each morning will begin with a group round (extended meditation programme), morning snan in the Ganga, followed by breakfast.

After breakfast, there will be an excursion or planned activity, followed by lunch and a knowledge session with Thom and special guests.

The afternoon continues with a group round, followed by dinner. The day concludes with an evening lecture with Thom and special guests.

There will also be an opportunity to follow a special high rounding program designed by Thom for those who would like to participate. Completing a rounding program is a prerequisite for Initiator Training.

Excursions include: Vasistha’s Cave, Maharishi Mahesh Yogi’s Ashram, Kunjapuri Devi Temple and more!
