Without question, RA MA Yatras fulfill the definition of “yatra” that Yogi Bhajan gave in 1997 – a yatra is “nothing more than a man going to his higher self”. I’ve been on a few RA MA Yatras at this point, and each one has been an accelerant for deepening into my soul.
It’s an inner excavation of sorts when we go to the most energetically rich power-places on the planet – and Guru Jagat, Harijiwan, and the RA MA Crew know how to give you the best opportunities to get the most out of your epic adventure.
Here’s what you can expect –
1. You get access to hidden temples and secret places of power…
RA MA Yatras are not your average “tour” group experiences, and because of this, you’ll get to traverse places outside of what is typically on an itinerary for tour groups.
In Tibet, we were able to meditate in Milarepa’s Cave – and the few hours that we spent there alone changed my life. The great yogi’s cave is not something that you can simply do a Google search for – and it required us to drive through tiny villages in rural Tibet as our guides knocked on locals’ doors to ask for directions to this secret place. We eventually found ourselves driving up a steep, winding road to then hike up to this magnificent powerpoint.
2. Speaking of itineraries, you won’t get one…
This is one of my favorite things about RA MA Yatras. Because the primary intention is always about getting you to the most sacred, energetic places possible, you’ll often go off-script and will get to flow with the poetic spontaneity of these trips.
The non-linear nature of these high-energy places often requires a different kind of fluidity, as many of them don’t operate on Western 9:00am – 5:00pm hours. In fact, (as was the case of Milarepa’s cave), many places aren’t even open to tour groups at all and will involve an extra amount of intuitive guidance from Guru Jagat and Harijiwan.
So be prepared to surrender to a flow that will lead you to the deepest, most sacred places along your journey. Plus, part of what makes a RA MA Yatra so special is that you’ll never go to the same place twice. So if you feel the call to join, do it, because the crew likely won’t be back!
3. The group energy creates an incredible energy field….
Without fail, every single RA MA Yatra group that I’ve been present for has been an amazing combination of people from all over the world who have come together to reach new realms of consciousness.
You’ll spend a week or more together transforming in ways seen and unseen – traveling through scenic landscapes, meditating at sacred sites, decoding ancient mysteries, and so much more.
