If you have the opportunity and it calls to you, traveling to a retreat no matter where in the world it is, with Hemali Vora will lead you to answers you didn't even know you had a question for. Her understanding of such a wide breadth of topics, modalities and experiences gives her a unique position of leading you into better understanding of who you are and the path you were meant for in this world.

It was the trip of a lifetime and will in exorbitantly change me and how I see the world and myself. In a different, beautiful way. Take the leap and know all will be as it should. I did and it was the best thing I could have done.

Preeti Singh

This was my first experience traveling with people I had never met before. But I knew I would be okay from the get go because I trusted Hemali fully and to be able to be in her company was enough for me. She has this ability that makes me feel comfortable being me.

My big takeaway from this trip is to be myself, even if I stand alone, I stand in my truth. The confirmation of being on the right path, introducing ideas of oneness, the meditation technique, the importance of movement and breathwork. This trip had it all. Everything that I could have ever asked for.

Polly J. Stadt

Overall, my experience on this retreat was transformational. This trip validated for me that the space I have been living, is where I want to continue to be. It enabled me to be present in the moment, allowing me to heighten my intuition and deepen my meditation practice.


If you are considering this retreat, I would recommend coming with an open mind and a willingness to let go of control, as it will allow you to fully embrace the experience. Hemali offered a perfect balance of guided activities yet options of downtime, rest and reflection.
