How is this offline onsite retreat any different from all the other trips that are organized within India?
The Soulful Exploration is a venture that curates events and presents them as experiences for you. It has effectively managed to associate with soulful people from India who are experts in their own field of arts, craft, music, dance and a plethora of other rare, lost Indian art forms and who also want to share their passion with you
Other Travel formats focus mainly on a local experience and with what is locally available and present that to you in the best possible manner.
What does the term ‘immersive’ mean?
When you start doing something, you first engage in it as an activity. Slowly as it starts to grow on you, you become immersed in it and the activity starts to become an experience and this helps you connect better with yourself in an almost meditative state.
What can I expect from an on-location retreat?
As soon as you become a part of this Retreat/Program, you transition from merely being a Tourist on guided tours to a Soulful Explorer travelling an experiential path that is exciting yet revealing of many new facets through the curated event. You can expect to connect with yourself and the external world better and also learn new and rare art forms to take back as a treasure with you. You also experience the culture of the land which has been home to you during the Retreat.
How was The Soulful Exploration created?
The belief of the co-founders is: Disconnect to Re-connect!
This fuelled in them an urge to push their boundaries and find something that you could easily identify with. Everyone loves travel with an experience and when we decided to infuse this travel with myriad components like people, activities, food, venue all coming together very consciously to magically create a safe space The Soulful Exploration for you to explore and create and experience harmony within a holistic travel experience.
