Lovely! I wish I could retreat with my mother. What an absolute blessing for the both of you to have this special experience together!

Thank you for the updates. It's wonderful to get to "spy" on your trip.

Loved, loved, loved Rishikesh and hope you have a beautiful time. Don't forget to seek out the hidden treasure that is the Beatles Ashram, where they stayed with Maharishi Yogi
