Hinterland Village and Bodhi Center offer Detox and Rejuvenating retreat if you are looking for a relaxing and peaceful holiday amidst the tropical greenery of Kerala. This retreat offers you the perfect guidance and space whilst being held in the embrace of a deeply supportive and restorative detoxification program. Harmony with what you think you are, and what you are really. For most of us, life is a bundle of ever-changing bodies, thoughts, emotions, fancies, day-dreams, goals, people, circumstances, and plenty of unnecessary mental baggage, including boredom. If you really read your own life-story, you might be surprised to find that, the only thing missing is: You.
