The Ananda Pilgrimage Experience

Get into a profound state of flow and upliftment

Certain places in the world have a divine power that can bless and transform you. In such places, even the soil vibrates with higher consciousness.

To make the most of your visit there, it is best to eliminate distractions, to travel with uplifting and like-minded company, and to follow a wise and experienced guide.

That’s why we’ve been leading pilgrimages for almost 50 years—to take care of the details and help you have profound, unforgettable spiritual journeys.

Relax and focus on the inner experience

Our carefully curated itineraries allow our guests to be in a gentle state of flow, supported by our hosts, helping you connect with the holiness of each site.

Travel with supportive leaders and guides

Our experienced Ananda hosts as well as the in-country guides serve with joy and focus to inspire you to further deepen your inner spiritual life.

“Thank you for the great leadership you provided during our pilgrimage. Meditations in the morning, chanting and selected readings as we approached each destination helped us to prepare for deeply spiritual experiences.”

More Pilgrimages Hosted by Ananda Partners

In addition to our Ananda Pilgrimage Upcoming Programs, we are happy to share about other Ananda hosted trips around the world which bring guests to places of high spiritual vibration, including many not available to individual travelers.

Outstanding Ananda hosts and in-country guides offer joyful support which reinforces the spiritual power of all the facets of a pilgrimage journey.

Imagine being in places of high spiritual vibration where you can relax and open your heart to receive the blessings.

Since 1986, trips to meditative power points in India have included tracing the River Ganges up to Badrinath, following in the footsteps of Paramhansa Yogananda and his line of gurus, and visiting Babaji’s cave. Haridwar and Rishikesh also are spiritually charged destinations.

The Heart and Soul of Italy: Sept. 9–23, 2024

Italy is one of the most heart-opening places to go on pilgrimage. Commune with powerful saints who left their mark on the world—Saint Francis, Saint Clare, and Saint Catherine of Siena.

Enjoy a visit at the Ananda Assisi community, and travel with Nayaswami Nischala and Nayaswami Nakula to scenic Umbria and Tuscany plus visit Rome, Assisi, Perugia, Cortona, LaVerna, Florence and Siena. Free online classes before you travel.

Join us to experience the divine blessings of pilgrimage.

“The benefit of pilgrimage to holy places is not because of their rich history, but for the fact that divine blessings can be experienced when visiting them.”
