On a pear orchard in the Mountains of Tamil Nadu, outside the town of Kodaikanal, we will settle into India in a relaxed way. The days will be filled with nourishing food, kirtan sessions, astrology lectures, self led yoga asana, meditation, silence astrology readings and wandering about the nearby countryside.
The second week will include a visit to each of the planetary temples in the Kaveri Delta, in addition to the other worldly experience of a Nadi Palm Leaf Astrology reading.
This tour, co-designed by Edwin Bryant and Govinda Andriollo, will focus on perhaps the most delightful stories in all of Indian mythology, the legend of Krishna from the Srimad Bhagavatam. Vrindavan/ Mathura is the village where Krishna was born and enjoyed his childhood.

Highlights of the tour include visits to some epic temples along with Govardhan Hill, a boat ride on the Yamuna River and an excursion to Agra to visit the Taj Mahal.
