Full Description

Enstasy is a yoga and meditation confluence - an eight-day retreat gathering of like - minded souls from around the world to immerse themselves in the authentic study, practice and experience of yoga and meditation in the lush, gorgeous tropical surroundings of Kerala, India. You will practice yoga daily and learn an ancient way of meditation - a simple, practical and systematic process of calming the senses, and diving deep within oneself to experience the divine within you. It is structured with this philosophy in mind: the first 4-days are focused on diving deep into the study and practice of meditation, and the following 4-days are intended for practice, reflection, relaxation and excursions at thoughtfully selected hideaways from which you can choose.

Jasmine Grace will be leading the Arabian Sea – Sun, Surf, Yoga, Meditation and Ayurveda post-confluence retreat.

ITINERARY

Enstasy Confluence

Days 1-4

Enstasy will be held at the gorgeous Kumarakom Lake Resort. Kumarakom sits on the serene banks of the emerald backwaters of Lake Vembanad, India’s longest lake. Coconut trees sway in the warm breeze draping the reassembled 16th century Keralan villas with shade. The villas are luxuriously modern and were designed to celebrate the authentic and traditional architecture of the land. The resort is an idyllic representation of Kerala’s architectural and cultural heritage, making it the perfect location for the Confluence. It reflects our goal: to share that which is authentic and to dive deeply into the practices of meditation, practice yoga daily and be supported by this beautiful landscape.

After these first 4 days you will join Jasmine Grace for the post-confluence retreat for the Arabian Sea Escape in Kovalam. Enjoy the sun, sand, surf, yoga, meditation, and Ayurveda as you integrate your learnings. Take in the beauty of one of Kerala’s most charming beach destinations, Kovalam, during this rejuvenating getaway. Watch the local fisherman cast their nets into the ocean waves, soak up the sunshine and breathtaking views of the Arabian Sea from the hilltop pool of your lovely hotel, and indulge in the freshest and most delicious local cuisine. Practice yoga and meditation daily and learn the foundations of an Ayurvedic lifestyle that you can easily assimilate into your home life. Kovalam’s palm tree lined beaches and private coconut groves are a wonderful place to relax and reflect on and integrate your experiences at the Confluence.

There will also be plenty of time to sunbath and swim at the beautiful pool, pampering yourself at their spa, and indulging in the excellent local cuisine.

Local excursions will also be an option including a trip to a local Ayurveda Spa and Wellness Center.

Day 8

Here the tour concludes and you can arrange to continue your stay in India or head to the airport to catch your flight home.

A SANCTUARY OF LIFE AND TRADITIONS

Our Destination

Our meditation and yoga confluence will be held in Kerala, South India. Kerala has long been a home to ancient Hindu practices and is most well known for being the birthplace of Ayurvedic medicine. Life here is gentle, unhurried, and moves at the gait of an elephant. The tropical climate gives life to one and all. Tigers and elephants roam the jungle, monkeys swing from trees and scamper across rooftops, spices and tea quilt the hills and fisherman dot the waves and the soft sandy beaches along the coastline of the sparkling cerulean waters of the Arabian Sea. There are few destinations that are more idyllic. Kerala, is a sanctuary of life and known by its people as "God's own country".

A Spiritual Journey

The difference between a vacation and a spiritual journey, is that a spiritual journey always comes with a little challenge. If a spiritual journey was easy to plan and make happen it would be called a vacation, not a pilgrimage. It is also the case that when you overcome the challenges in preparation for your spiritual journey, you will enjoy the benefits of personal growth and the learnings that come with that growth. If you feel this Yoga and Meditation Confluence deeply resonates with you, then make the choice to come. If an obstacle arises, know that this is part of the process, don't give up, and instead make it happen. You will find that once you start taking charge of your life, everything will fall into place accordingly.

A spiritual journey is no ordinary journey. It is well thought out and planned. It is to be approached with respect and courage for it brings about change in a person. And change is the first step towards realizing the permanent divinity within each of us. Join me and other spiritual seekers on our very first Yoga and Meditation Confluence in one of the world’s most enchanting places, Kerala, India!
