Profound Encounters With The Spiritual Essence of India, and Yourself

“There’s no moment of delight in any Pilgrimage like the beginning of it” Charles Dudley Warner

JOIN US ON OUR NEXT TRANSFORMATIVE JOURNEY

15 - 29 November 2024
15-day journey

India Calling journeys are healing and transformational. They are imbued with a sense of Pilgrimage – one of returning home to your spiritual Self. Through breathwork, a mantra-based meditation, yoga, Ayurveda and the Sudarshan Kriya, you are provided with the tools to heal and transform, and all against the beautiful backdrop of a chaotic, heavenly and divine Mother India. 

These journeys are not for the average tourist – more for those on the road less travelled. While you will experience an incredible diversity of human life in this extraordinary country, perhaps the most profound encounter will be with yourself.

Those drawn to India Calling journeys may well be at a crossroads in their lives or navigating their way through challenging times. These are often an opportunity to take stock of what’s really important to you and create new priorities and boundaries, so that you feel more aligned with a sense of purpose.

“A journey becomes a Pilgrimage as we discover, day by day, that the distance travelled is less important than the experience gained.” Ernst Kurtz

ABOUT INDIA CALLING

India Calling was conceived from Stefanie and Ivan’s shared love of India, and respective, strong family connections to this sacred land. “We share the same spiritual teacher, Sri Sri Ravi Shankar, and on His UK visit in 2023, we talked with Him about bringing groups to India. With His blessings to proceed, and His idea to imbue the trips with a strong Ayurveda focus, India Calling was born”.

Our intention is for these beautiful times to forever echo in your soul, just as the evocative sights, sounds, textures, exotic tastes, and heavenly aromas will long dance in your memory.

“Are you a tourist, or a Pilgrim? Both are on a journey. While the tourist satisfies the senses, the pilgrim is on a quest for truth.”  Sri Sri Ravi Shankar.

1. Get A Visa

For simple online application: https://indianvisaonline.gov.in/evisa/Registration Select 1.e-Tourist Visa
All you need is to fill out an application form, upload some documents, and pay the fee.
Check your passport expiry date is at least 6 months beyond the date of arrival in India.
12 month E-Tourist Visa processing time: 3-4 working days. Cost: £75.

2. Consider Vaccinations

Entry to India does not require you to have any vaccines, however the normal courses or boosters advised are: Diphtheria, Tetanus, Hepatitis A and Typhoid Fever. We would advise you to contact your local GP surgery as they should be able to arrange DTT (Diphtheria, Tetanus and Typhoid) free of charge.
We have been advised by a travel clinic to recommend Rabies as there are a few cheeky monkeys in the Ashram. That said, we have never known anyone to be bitten. Rabies is administered in 3separate vaccines starting no less than 21 days before travel. Other vaccines to be considered are: Hepatitis B.
For any other vaccine requirements, you can book an appointment at a private travel clinic of your choice. Lauren at Lyneham Travel Clinic is very helpful: https://lynehampharmacy.co.uk. Vaccines are £35 each here.
As of 23 Jun 2023 it’s no longer necessary for travellers to have a COVID-19 vaccine to enter India, nor to have a negative COVID test result before travelling.

3. Get Travel Insurance

While not required by Indian government for visitors to have travel insurance, if you choose not to have it, you will have to pay out of your own pocket to deal with a problem while you’re away. India Calling will have Tour Operator Insurance, however this will not cover you for anything personal where India Calling is not at fault.

4. Book Your Flight!

Ivan will be in India a week before and Stefanie leaves the UK on 27th October, and we will meet you at Bangalore Airport.
We have found reasonable fights on 1st November with both Etihad (EY12) and Air India (AI162) arriving early morning 2nd November.
We request you book one of these flights as transport will be arranged to collect as many of you as possible at one time. India is waiting for you!
