Haidakhan Babaji ashram, Gufa side, divine mother temples

The focal point of the retreat is Haidakhan Vishwa Mahadham, an ashram where I have spent much time in recent years. It's been such a gift in my life, I'd like to share this with others who would like to go with a group, be supported in their inner process by experienced transformation facilitators and have all the organisational hassle taken care of.

Haidakhan is located in a remote part of the Himalayan foothills on the bank of the river Gautami Ganga. It is a very special place at any time of year: the home of Shri Babaji, an incarnation of Sambasadashiva, the aspect of Shiva which is always in union with the divine mother. When Babaji was in a physical body, his teaching was ‘Truth, Simplicity, Love and Service’. We will be there for Navaratri, the festival of nine nights in honour of the divine mother. 

The sense of grace and peace in Haidakhan is so tangible you can almost touch them. This energy is a huge accelerator for connecting deeply with who we really are and stepping out of habitual thought, behaviour and physical patterns into more presence, choice and open energy flow. This natural growth and renewal cycle is even more pronounced during Navaratri, with ancient vedic fire ceremonies and special pujas being held every day. A day during Navaratri can seem like many years of personal growth in ‘normal’ life! Plus, you will have the support of a group and skilled facilitators. I’m co-organising and running this retreat with my dear colleague Ola Kopplinger, a wonderful spiritual coach, who has been taking groups to India for many years. So you will be in double safe hands!

Goa (optional)

In order to ease into India and get the most out of the extraordinary experience in Haidakhan, we recommend you begin the retreat with us in Goa. Five days to unwind and relax in the middle of lush Goan nature, just minutes away from the sun-drenched sands and warm waters of Mandrem Beach.

We will stay at a The Mandala Yoga & Art Resort which offers delicious, nourishing food and juices, as well as Ayurvedic treatments. It’s a perfect setting for the acceleration of the inner journey, further supported by daily retreat sessions of different transformational practices to open up the subtle energies, emotional and physical body.

Transformational retreat sessions with me and Ola

Our approach to the transformational work we offer is deeply informed by our own healing journeys and trainings. Regardless of the specific techniques or modalities we tried or trained in, and the teachers we’ve been graced to learn from, at the core of what we learnt is the importance of the connection to our inner self, the voice in our hearts which guides and speaks with wisdom and unconditional love.

The purpose of our work is to support others in finding or deepening the relationship with their inner self in order to lead inspired, authentic lives in full knowledge and embodiment of their divine essence.


On this retreat, we will tailor the facilitated retreat sessions to the needs of the participants, drawing from a rich repertoire of healing and transformational modalities, including energetic constellations, breathwork, fire ceremony, guided meditations and creative work.
