About the Course
A thousand year old village inviting you to walk through its quaintly winding lanes. The fascinating play of light & shadow among the earthy Warli houses. The fragrance of Nature permeating the fields of medicinal herbs & healthy grain. An immense variety of birds calling out for your attention in birdsong.
Eat delicious food cooked on firewood with simple ingredients & a pure heart, in the company of the village folk at their homes. If you’re up for it, you could even lend a hand with the cooking! Exchange life-stories with the group over tea around a bonfire. Sing. Dance if you feel called to move to a more primeval rhythm. And for dessert - the utterly beautiful Milky Way. Lie back on your charpai and take in the eternal dance of the stars & other celestial bodies as they waltz through the night sky.
