FORM + FOCUS
We are so excited about another special collaboration with Julian Hyzler from EASEL&LENS to combine a look at creative focus with art projects in sketching and "ifonography" (smartphone photography) throughout the week. Yoga and meditation classes will be held daily to prepare our bodies and minds to find the 'calm in the chaos' of the sensory-overload that is India - and then these art projects will help us find news ways of seeing - both yoga and art working together to find FOCUS in the many layers of smells, sites, and sounds that abound in exotic Goa. *NO PREVIOUS ART OR YOGA BACKGROUND REQUIRED. All levels are welcome, and participation is voluntary. Projects and classes will be offered as a completely exploratory, unintimidating and personal experience.
GIVE BACK RETREAT
This retreat is part of our GIVE BACK initiative, where EPM will donate at least 10% of profits to a humanitarian partner in the community where each retreat is held. Our partner in India is MAGIC BUS who "steers children towards a better life with better awareness, better life skills, and better opportunities, in the journey from childhood to livelihood."
We'll be staying at an award-winning private luxury boutique villa in Goa. Set in an amazing tropical garden with freeform jungle swimming pool and private jet plunge pools, these gorgeous villas are the finest in comfortable luxury. They have been designed in complete harmony with the landscape and cultural milieu giving guests a glorious retreat from the bustle of India. The architectural balance offers the sophisticated international traveller a place of privacy and nurture where a sense of balance can be found. Named by Conde Nast Traveller as one the best villas in the world for small groups, where outstanding service is top.
