Event Description
Return to the Sacred: India Tour 2024

Trip Overview


2 nights Delhi
3 nights Jaipur
4 nights Vrindavan
3 nights Benares


On this trip, hosted by me, Adam Bauer, we will explore four magical regions in North India, and I’ll take you to some of my very favorite temples, street markets, and sacred places in both town and country. We will combine the best of luxury and location, experiencing Heritage Haveli accommodations wherever possible–and always clean, safe and comfortable places when luxury is not available because we will be in the heart of rural devotional India.


I’ve been going on pilgrimage in North India for 25 years–and I’ve personally crafted this trip to share some of my most beloved places here. We’ll be a very small group–max 12 participants–sharing an intimately curated journey, with ample time for rootsy cultural explorations. Daily chanting and devotional practice. Temple darshans, pujas, and meetings with remarkable souls. We will walk together in the timeless footsteps of saints and sages 


Benares is older than history, older than tradition, older even than legend, and looks twice as old as all of them put together.
