Full Description

Join us at Basunti for an unforgettable and life-changing holiday. Basunti is an idyllic private lakeside retreat centre, set on a promontory in a nature reserve nestling in the foothills of the great Indian Himalayas.

It is situated in the state of Himachal Pradesh in North India and surrounded by the waters of the Maharana Pratap Sagar. It sits at the heart of a wildlife reserve and has been developed in harmony with the local environment. As well as the chance to swim in the lake, there is also a first-class swimming pool and beautiful, landscaped gardens.

“So laidback, it’s almost horizontal” is how Harpers & Queen described the rural atmosphere at Basunti.

Aligning with Purpose will have you:
- examining yourself from another angle
- defining your essence, and sense of purpose
- defining where you are heading in life
- getting in touch with layers of emotions, memories, compulsive thoughts
- observing our thoughts and reactions through the day
- getting in touch with your body, its messages and its needs
- learning about Yogic, Buddhist and Ayurvedic approaches to transformation
- encountering and learning from stimulating, like-minded people

Individual and group support will carry the work of exploring where you want to make changes in your life, with specific exercises and guidance for doing just that.

You will also benefit from an insightful and inspiring one-hour astrology consultation with Susan as a part of this course (a €120 value), which you can arrange as of September 1st either before, during or after the retreat, either in person or via Zoom depending where you live.

A 75-minute individual follow-up session (a €75 value) is also included to help sustain your transformation, to be scheduled after the retreat up to February 28th, either in person or via Zoom.

For some of you this will be a first step on your journey towards true self-expression, and for others, it might be one of many more that are already underway. For others still, this can be a step back into a process that was begun years ago but was interrupted by personal events, like having children or a demanding job.

Midway through the retreat, we will take a day trip to Dharamsala/McLeod Ganj, the home of the Dalai Lama, as well as a major centre of the Tibetan community in India, and the seat of the Tibetan Government in Exile. We will also visit the wonderful Norbulingka Institute on our way back to Basunti. (This trip will require a 3-hour drive each way, and is entirely optional. If you think it would be too much for you and you would prefer to spend a day resting at Basunti, please let me know and I will discount the excursion price.)

You can extend your trip on either end with a visit to Amritsar and the magnificent Golden Temple, or Dharamsala/McLeod Ganj. Both are about 3 hours' drive from Basunti.
