Our Experience

During our time at Life Maker in the beautiful village of Salig, Himachal, we experienced an environment that was both serene and invigorating.

This retreat offered us a unique opportunity to step away from the hectic pace of daily life and immerse ourselves in a setting where we could truly connect with nature and ourselves.

The People and the Place

The village of Salig is a gem in Himachal, filled with kind-hearted, welcoming people. We were deeply moved by their simplicity, warmth, and the sense of community that pervades every aspect of life there.

The breathtaking views of the mountains added to the sense of peace and tranquility, creating a perfect backdrop for our retreat.

Spiritual Conversations and Deep Dilemmas

One of the most enriching aspects of our stay was the opportunity to have spiritual conversations with Ayush Ghai. As the founder of Life Maker, Ayush brings a wealth of knowledge and insight into discussions about education and living.

His perspective on unschooling, self-directed learning, and the importance of aligning our lives with our true passions was both inspiring and thought-provoking. These conversations allowed us to explore our own beliefs and consider new ways of thinking about how we live and learn.

Community Engagement

We also had the chance to engage with the local community in meaningful ways. We spent time with the village children, participating in their learning activities and daily routines. It was heartening to see them learning independently, exploring their interests, and taking responsibility for their tasks.

This experience reinforced the idea that education can be found in everyday life and that children thrive when given the freedom to follow their curiosities.

Reflection and Connection

The retreat at Life Maker was a journey of self-discovery and reflection. It provided us with the space to think deeply about our own lives, our values, and our goals. The connections we made with the people of Salig and the other retreat participants were genuine and lasting.

We left with a renewed sense of purpose and a deeper understanding of what it means to live a fulfilling life.

In Love with Salig

Salig, Himachal, has left an indelible mark on our hearts. The beauty of the landscape, the warmth of the people, and the profound experiences we had at Life Maker have made us fall in love with this place. It is a sanctuary for those seeking to reconnect with themselves and the world around them.

If you yearn for a space to recharge, reflect, and connect on a deeper level, a retreat with Life Maker is where you need to be.

Whether you are looking to explore new educational philosophies, engage in meaningful conversations, or simply take a break from the rush of daily life, Salig offers a unique and transformative experience.

We are grateful for the time we spent there and look forward to returning to this beautiful village that now feels like a second home.
