Our Destination

The Emerald of the Indian Ocean

Sri Lanka is our destination for our 2017 Spiritual Adventure. From tea covered hill stations to sun-bleached golden sand beaches kissed by warm tropical seas, millennia old temples and monasteries, oodles of elephants and waterfalls, wildlife, cuisine to light up every taste bud… this only begins to describe this emerald island in the Indian ocean.

Our Itinerary

12-days of Spiritual Adventuring

Negombo

Our journey begins in Negombo, a beach town located close to the airport and just outside of Sri Lanka’s capital, Colombo. Here’s where our travelers from around the world will meet for our orientation gathering.

Ella

We head from away from Sri Lanka’s golden beaches to the hill country, long a respite for many a local resident from the country’s scorching summers. Ella is our destination. A quaint little town surrounded by rolling hills and valleys covered in tea plantations and embroidered by tropical jungles. The lush green views are gorgeous and are only broken by silvery waterfalls that flow year round.

Anuradhapura

From Ella we board a train that traverses the hill country in one of the most beautiful train rides in all of Asia. We arrive in Kandy and transfer on to our coach to head into the Central Province in the north to our next destination, Anuradhapura. Here we settle down for 3 nights to dive deep into our study. The days will be filled with classes and spiritual practices.

Trincomalee

We leave Anaradhapura and head northwest to the coastal town of Trincomalee that is perched on the shores of the Indian Ocean and is old almost beyond reckoning. Here we’ll visit the ancient Siva temple of Koneswaram that is over 2,500 years old and participate and experience traditional Hindu ceremonies.

Jaffna

We leave Trincomalee for our final destination, Jaffna, located in the northern most tip of this teardrop-shaped nation. Here we’ll spend the remaining nights and days of our spiritual adventure immersed in study, and an in-depth immersion in Hindu spirituality, rituals and experiences in temples and monasteries.
