Head to Heart retreat

Sahaj Foundation


In today’s era of cutthroat competition, we are seldom left with any time to think for ourselves, rather we are mostly lost in the worldly rat race that leads us to unfulfilled materially rich lives. Even when we wish to follow our hearts' calling and live meaningful lifestyle, the fear of insecurity, peer pressure, parents’ expectations come in between. In the end, all we get is a life full of bank balance but no time for leisure, a life full of technical gadgets but no time to truly connect with our fellow beings and a life full of machines that save time but no time to spend with our own self. Moreover, high level of insecurity in getting a job and blind race for accumulating more and more money has taken us far away from what can be called a purposeful life. 

Head2Heart retreat is an initiative that aims to take young professionals away from worldly rat race for a period of seven days and help them to find time for connecting with themselves. The retreat comes with an objective to take its seekers on a journey from their Heads to their Hearts so that they can not only identify their heart’s calling, but also gather courage to follow the same in the real world.



In the midst of Himalayas, our seekers would be facilitated to make a shift from their Heads to their Hearts in order to reach their heart’s purpose through-

  • A sharing of the powerful stories of common individuals who have made a choice to follow their hearts in spite of all the obstacles
  • Purposefully designed indoor activities to make seekers reflect on what their heart truly is
  • Day-long adventurous outdoor challenges to make seekers gather courage and clarity on what their heart longs for
  • Reflections/sharing of experiences by seekers to bring out the synergy of the group
  • Introspection sessions by practicing guided meditation and silence
