Immerse Yourself in Traditional Ayurveda

October 2023

Considered the “home of Ayurveda,” Kerala is also called God’s own country for its lush, rich and extraordinary beauty. A place where for centuries international traders have sought its prized spices, Kerala is a culture of rich diversity, sophistication and color where people are warm, wise and welcoming.

 

Nourish
Our trip begins at a traditional Ayurvedic center right on the beach where you will be nourished, pampered, oiled and rejuvenated. There will be Yoga classes, ocean swims, classes with Ayurvedic doctors and chefs, nature walks and temple visits.

 

Spice
From there we head to the famed ghats, to wander through herbal forests where botanical medicine grows on trees and vines, and seemingly everywhere. There you will visit a large family spice plantation, hike or boat through a tropical wildlife preserve, enjoy a cooking class and meal with a local couple in their home, and in the evenings with our acclaimed Kerala chefs, enjoy cultural performances, and rest easy at our eco-friendly, traditionally inspired cottages in the Cardamom Hills. 

On our way up to the western ghats, we will spend one evening at

 

Float
We will spend one night on houseboats on the serene Backwaters, floating on these beautiful waters and canals where people have lived and farmed since what seems like time immemorial, while enjoying comfort and traditional Kerala meals in the evening under the stars.

 

Enlighten
Our final days will be in Fort Cochin, on the Malabar coast. Thanks to the spice trade, Cochin has received traders and merchants from China, Europe and the Middle East over its history and it shows in its architecture, art, and cuisine. In Cochin we will tour the historic quarters, allowing time for shopping, art galleries and museums. We will celebrate our trip on our final night with an exquisite cultural dinner.

 

Learn
All the while, you will be accompanied by Ayurvedic practitioner Laura Plumb, author of Ayurveda Cooking For Beginnerswho will be holding classes and sharing inspiration as we travel. We will meet wise guides, Ayurvedic experts and cultural historians, and get to listen and learn from them.

 

Delight
This promises to be a rich and vibrant experience with a lovely group of inspiring individuals exploring the magic of Kerala.

Please note this is an educational immersion into Ayurveda, for serious students of Vedic wisdom. Please email me of you have questions.

 

For the last five years I’ve been on a journey of self-exploration. In this journey I have been looking for the piece of the puzzle that made me feel whole. That piece that was my version of home and that made me feel like I belong. This Ayurveda Immersion trip was that piece for me. It gave the opportunity to connect with myself in a way that made me feel like I arrived… home.

Going on this trip with the vast knowledge Laura has of Ayurveda, meditation, yoga, and Jyotish was more than I could imagine. Laura connects to all people in a way that is caring and deliberate. I loved that there was constantly a new experience to learn or just enjoy all day, every day. Laura has a way of finding the awe in all. I am grateful to have such a wonderful teacher in Laura, to show me the way.

During this trip I experienced an expansion within myself… Every time I sat in stillness, or received a body treatment, or savored the delicious food, or chanted a mantra and felt its vibrations moving through me, I was expanding my understanding in Ayurveda… This awareness permeated in me and has freed me.
