The essential self-care package
The Art of You Retreat in India takes you on a seven day heart-opening journey to balance, nourish and align your mind, body and soul.
The Art of You programme has been carefully crafted to listen to, tend to, and integrate the needs of your mind, body and soul, supporting you to see and love ‘all that you are’.
You will be guided through a deeply nurturing, heartfelt and transformative journey to reconnect with the three Cosmic Powers of Nature, Energy and Beauty. Nature feeds your sense of belonging, Energy feeds your quality of life, and Beauty feeds your soul. Together they sustain your wholeness, power and growth on the planet.
"The Walk Your Talk Retreat is a cleverly structured, multi-disciplinary programme to enable self-examination, self-expression and change, in a safe and supportive environment." Jackie B. - Western Morning News

Free pick-up information
We advise people to fly into Calicut airport (CCJ), North Kerala; it’s the closest to the venue and we provide free pick-up from there on the morning of the retreat start date.
We ask people to arrange their flights to arrive on the morning of the retreat start date if they want to book the free pick-up, otherwise you can get a pre-paid taxi from the airport or we can arrange one for you at the usual local cost, which is around £40 and takes around 2-3 hours depending on traffic.
Etihad and Qatar airlines do good deals on flights via either Abu Dhabi, or Doha respectively. To find flights to Callicut (CCJ) also known as Khozikode we recommend http://www.skyscanner.net. It is a reliable website which gives you lots of choice.
Please note Kannur airport (CNN) has just been built and is only half an hour from the venue. At the time of writing the flights from Heathrow to Kannur were few and far between. Do check Kannur airport as they may have added more flights.
You will need a tourist visa to come to India. You can either:
1. Get a regular tourist visa to India here.
2. Or get an e-tourist visa here
Please check your arrival airport before applying for the e-tourist visa. At the point of writing you can fly into Callicut airport on an e-visa.
You can apply for the e-visa up to 4 days before departure to India. It is probably easier to apply for than the regular tourist visa because everything is done online. Remember that you will need to print out your visa form and take it with you.
