A Journey That Connects & Reconnects

Modern lifestyle with conveniences has resulted in a disconnection with the natural science and beauty. A Pad Yatra helps us to return to the basics. The physical assertion requires for the daily walk, the individual team cooperation needed for the entire group, and the mental discipline can pose a challenge. However experiences from the Pad Yatra would often become solutions in one's own journey in life.

On one hand, cars, buses, trains and airplanes have no doubt reduced our physical traveling distance; on another, they have disrupted the connection between us and reality, and created a complete blindspot about our environmental hazards, and about how little steps, taken collectively together, can make a positive change.

Everyday Enlightenment

When we slow things down it turns out we have more time to do the things that really matter, we can look around and appreciate all the details, we feel connected with our own body, our own mind, with all the people in our life and with the world around us.
