Looking forward to welcoming you soon in Rishikesh.

Warm regards and Namaskaar from Mumbai where we’re in the midst of a very inspiring Immersive.


A pioneering happening. A revolutionary body of knowledge. A life changing transformation. An energized field of action. A revered transformational guide.

For eleven days immerse yourself in an unparalleled process of self-mastery and self-knowing. Awaken to the all-knowing Source within you. In the presence of Maharishikaa Preeti (Preeti Chandrakant) – the mystic who dares to demystify – receive answers to your most challenging questions.

Learn how to master yourself. Learn how to empower others. And above all, learn a process by which to tune into the Source within, to receive precise answers, and… to know… what Love is.

The Location

Known since time immemorial to be the himalayan home to seers and knowers, Rishikesh is also known as the Yoga capital of the world. Indians and visitors from around the globe visit Rishikesh throughout the year to attend retreats of revered spiritual masters, to learn Yoga, and to take a dip in the pristine holy Ganga river and experience her beauty and power.

The Itinerary

Participants must arrive at Swargashram, Rishikesh latest by afternoon on February 10, 2020. Dinner will be served at the venue. The Immersive will begin on Tuesday, February 11 and conclude on Friday, February 21, 2020. There may be one day of rest and relaxation during this week.
Those under 18 will not be permitted to attend the Transformation sessions. They will be permitted to participate in other activities like the Dindi Yaatraa and the Ganga Aarati.

Immersive Participants Share

Where is the shower? Often one searches for the shower in India, without much luck! And soon it became the morning ritual. A special experience – pouring warm water from a bucket over oneself to wash oneself. – Martin, Bonn, Germany

Enjoying good food is one of the most satisfying parts of my existence. My experience of the food cooked by Rajesh in the Presence kitchen was simply delicious, he cooks from a place of presence and love, which is felt when that food is consumed. – Ruby, Melbourne, Australia

Of all the places around the world, magical Rishikesh is the one place where my inner journey went deeper, faster, clearer. Maiyaa’s very precise answers on all facets of living, and the powerful exercises expanded my consciousness. I became aware of the universe outside and inside and could tap into the matrix of perfection. And suddenly I could love more, give more and feel really alive. – Mitesh, Bangalore, India

I was blown away by the Ganga Aarati ceremony, experiencing a powerful facet of ancient Indian culture – to venerate a divine river, and thus get a glimpse of the Divine within me. I have had many retreat experiences in my life, but this was like no other. I can’t ever forget it – it was the first time I experienced pure love, and woke up to a much greater force at play, beyond time, beyond space, beyond words. Truly remarkable. – Rebecca, Devon, United Kingdom

After experiencing the Preeti Yoga movements, I felt so energized and was able to remain more centered throughout my day! Very simple exercises that one can build into the daily routine, even on very busy days. – Sefora, Zürich, Switzerland

I’ve been very very lucky to have been a part of the Rishikesh experience with my husband and my child, for 4 years now. We’ve always felt so safe, protected and guided while on the journey, that we long to be there each year. – Payal, Bombay, India

The guest house rooms were simple yet clean and had a balcony. Some rooms had a view of the Ganga. That was a real joy. I miss those mornings on the balcony. – Simon, Zürich, Switzerland

My first trip to Rishikesh was well organised. I was sent a very useful packing list well in advance so I had enough time to purchase what I needed and prepare myself. In Rishikesh everything was taken care of, and even though things were not according to western standards, what was more important was that I felt cared for. – Beatriz, Madrid, Spain
