Ayurvedic Healing and Yoga Retreat In Kerala, India

Ananda Travels' Ayurvedic Healing Retreat in Kerala is nestled in a tropical 5 acre garden set in the heart of the exquisite Malabar Coast with direct access to the sea.

Built in traditional southern India style, most of the Kerala cottages afford a view of the sea. This highly acclaimed Ayurvedic center won commendation by the State government for its quality of service.


Israel Pilgrimage

Join us on a sacred 2-week journey. Share an experience of the Holy Land with spiritually-minded people. The itinerary includes many shrines but the pace will be relaxed with time to meditate. Mount of Beatitudes Church still maintains the vibratory joy and power of Christ's presence.

Led by Diksha, a native Israeli who lived in Jerusalem for 10 years, and Gyandev who went on pilgrimage to the Holy Land with Swami Kriyananda.


Spain Pilgrimage

On this extraordinary trip, experience the deep vibrations of early monasteries, ancient convents, museums, opulent palaces, and antique castles—places of spiritual, historical and cultural inspiration. Walk the streets of centuries-old cities steeped in history—and the birthplace of many great saints.

Led by Mantradevi and Krishnasdas plus native of Spain Maria Antonia


Himalayan Adventure Pilgrimage

Explore some of the most sacred spiritual sites in India. We'll ascend the Himalayan heights to visit Ladakh and it's ancient Buddhist spiritual heritage. The highlight of this pilgrimage is the rugged ascent to Badrinath, a spiritual destination of great power.

You will visit saints and sadhus along the banks of the Ganges in Rishikesh, and meditate and chant your way through the holy lands of Mother India.
