The Birthplace of the Ganges

India. It’s the St. Andrews for yogis. And it’s my pilgrimage in 2010, personally irresistible because Rishikesh is where the Beatles learned Transcendental Meditation from Maharishi Mahesh Yogi.

While Darren Main and Kimberly Wilson will lead the retreat, I am traveling alone. I resisted the idea of a solo travels for weeks, asking family and friends if they would be interested in making the trip with me.

Moi! She who explored Europe alone by backpack for six weeks, fresh out of college. There was the two-week escape to the luxury spa in the high desert of Southern Utah (admittedly, not such a big stretch). And earliest of all, my independent nature presented back in the day as I walked myself to kindergarden ... a solid mile from home.

Dites-moi, SVP, about your pilgrimages and solo journeys ... unintentional or by design.
