Travel with us to travel within.

Unparalleled, unforgettable, and soul-changing retreats in the heart of the Indian Himalayas.

Gypsy Atman offers a travel experience unlike any other:

Our eco-friendly retreats in the ancient mountains of India are all meticulously curated by our founder and travel aficionado, Riri Patel. India is known as the Land of Faith and will offer you deeply spiritual, life-altering experiences. From the chai sellers to the taxi drivers, to the flower children, to the dogs and cows, every being here is imbued with a spiritual depth that is unparalleled by any other land. Merely being here will alter your perception of the world and – more important – how you fit into it as an individual. Through Riri’s curated retreats you will have an authentic experience that a commercial organization can’t provide for you. Since she has spent years living in and traveling throughout India, she can handpick the places that are the most conducive to creating altered perceptions of your true self (ātman) as well as the world around you. If you take part in this search with sincerity, under a knowledgeable guide such as Riri, you will gain everlasting benefits that you can bring into your day-to-day life. The essence you will soak up from this land will continue to help center and guide you through your days, imbuing them with deeper insight.
“We are ‘a gypsy’ at the core. All of us are travelers on this planet. Here to stay for a short time. So let’s go on a journey. Travel with us to travel within;  to reach into your atman.”

– Riri Patel

If you want to get away from the daily grind, look no further than our road trips and retreats – which will bring you to the sacred waters of the Ganges, the iconic and rustic villages of Kumaon, the adventure valley of Kullu Manali, and the unexplored mountainside of Lahaul and Spiti. You will practice yoga, and study ancient philosophy and Ayurveda with qualified teachers. You will explore ancient spiritual sites and taste locally sourced food straight from the farmer’s market.

If you want to make a change in your life and get in touch with your spiritual self (ātman), there’s no better way than to tour with us. Grab your ticket, pack your bags, and join us on the adventure of a lifetime.

Interesting Himalayan Facts

  • At Gypsy Ātman, we are gypsies. We travel. We travel to the mountains, along rivers, and across oceans. We travel without an itinerary, aim, or goal. Only once we get completely lost, do we find ourselves and our bliss.

    – Facts Legend
  • Although we are gypsy travelers, we also believe in the ancient idea of sama, evenness. Only when you are completely balanced in your own self, in your ātman, can you truly be free to experience the bliss life has to offer.

    – Facts Legend
  • As a high-profile wedding planner, our founder, Riri, knows firsthand the exhaustion created by a go-go life. After studying with different masters in India, she learned there is more to our precious time here than glitz and glamour.

    – Facts Legend
  • Through our specialized intuitive healing & lifestyle planning regime, we have curated the best of what Riri discovered in India. Our dedicated and unique teachers will guide you on your inner journey within the comfort of your own home.
