Since at least 3500 BC there is a culture called Indus Saravasti that was present in an important civilization until 1500 BC of the same name. Also known as the Indus River Valley Civilization or Harappiana.
There are numerous archaeological sites of this civilization between the regions of the Indus river today in Pakistan and the former Saravasti river in India.
As suggested in the seal above approx. 2350 BC, with a person in meditation position and various symbols that we find in the image of the god Shiva today, and dates from the oldest scriptures of Hinduism, the Vedas (approx. 2000 BC), the knowledge and methods of training our minds emerged in these regions a few millennia ago and are still available today.
Along with the oldest scriptures of the Vedas, we have access today to the most recent texts and traditions, such as the Upanishads, Vedanta, Bhagavagita, Hatha Yoga, as much knowledge of Hinduism and later traditions as the Buddhism, Jainism and the Sikhism. Available in translations into our modern languages such as Portuguese, Spanish, German, English, among many others.
Travelling in these countries inevitably means coming into contact with cultures where this knowledge has been present for a few millennia. We have contact with different traditions through the customs of each person, ethnic groups and temples with countless approaches to these philosophies and trainings.
There is a very rich dialogue and exchange of knowledge today between Western sciences, such as psychology, Neurosciences, quantum physics, and the ancient sciences of India, Nepal, Bhutan and Tibet.
Thus, we have access today to a series of books, lectures and courses on topics that can be of great importance and support in our days, such as meditation, emotional intelligence, emotional balance, lead, non-violent communication e peace culture, with a direct relationship with the knowledge of these countries.
When we set up your travel program, we'll talk about how we can combine their experiences in these countries with those subjects that are of interest to you, through:

We think of the most special opportunities and experiences in our travels, the conversations we have with people we meet along the way. Whether they are guides, drivers (often even if we don't speak a common language) and, above all, those who are not part of the formal structure of the trip, that is, people who found in the streets, temples and trains very often they will be the ones we keep the best memories.
