Sri Lanka Wild Elephant Eco-Retreat

February 15, 2019 - February 25, 2019

JAI GANESHA !
Sri Lanka Wild Elephant + Yoga Eco-Retreat

 

New Dates***** February 15 – 25, 2019****

This November, join me for a once in a lifetime eco-adventure as we head to beautiful and mystical Sri Lanka. I am partnering with my friends at The Ganesh Project ~ ElephantsNow.org ( formerly Saving Ganesh) to offer a very special Elephant Ecology & Yoga Retreat. Elephants are a sacred and essential part of the yoga wisdom tradition and are vital to the ecology for all species, including humans. Our intimate group will interact with wild elephants and other animals in their natural habitat, along with experienced rangers who protect them and the veterinarians who treat them. We will be helping to map out wild elephant herds and weather permitting a small boat ride out to sea to interact with whales. Both Elephants & Whales are majestic wisdom keepers that are being threatened by the activities and arrogance of mankind. During this retreat, we will learn how we can work together to spread awareness and how we can make a real difference for the survival of these incredible animals. 50% of the retreat proceeds will go directly to supporting the work of ElephantsNow.org ~ The Ganesha Project 501(c)3 and their mission protecting the Asian Elephants in their natural environment.

This really is a once in a lifetime opportunity to experience sacred elephants in the wild. We will be guided and protected by a team of native and international experienced elephant activists. We can only take a small group so that we have special access to many wonderful opportunities in the bush.

Space is limited to about 12 participants for this retreat.
