American Veda Tours offers transformative spiritual journeys in India guided by author/historian Phil Goldberg and spiritual teacher Swami Brahmananda (Brahms). Phil is author of American Veda: How Indian Spirituality Changed the West. Brahms leads spiritual retreats in Assisi, Italy and Rishikesh, India. Both have spent years studying with masters of India and share their unique experiences, personal connections and passion in this entirely unique and transformative journey.
Come with us and experience deeply sacred sites and participate in traditional Vedic rituals. Pay homage to the leading figures of this spiritual revolution: Vivekananda, Yogananda, Sri Aurobindo, Maharishi Mahesh Yogi, Neem Karoli Baba, Swami Muktananda, Srila Prabhupada and others. Walk in their footsteps, visit their ashrams and temples, learn about their lives and teachings from Phil and Brahms and from those who preserve their legacies today.
Throughout our time together Swami Brahmananda will guide travelers to internalize the great yogic teachings with yoga, meditation and sacred chanting. We'll attend classes, satsangs and discourses led by local teachers that are specially arranged for our travelers.
Get a true taste of India - its people and culture, its ancient spiritual tradition, its beauty and its joy. Whatever path you are on, an American Veda Tour is a powerful opportunity for learning and personal transformation.
