Tripadvisor review of Walk your Talk Retreats
Quite Simply Magical
When I booked to go on the retreat, nothing quite prepared me for just how magical the whole experience would be. From the minute I arrived to the minute I left I have never felt so at peace in every way. Vanessa and Mano could not have done more to make my first walk your talk retreat journey more beneficial, I wish I could put into words just how big an impact this has had on me, both during my time at Chera Rocks, and since I have come back home. Thank you so much to you both for helping me make changes that I needed to make, and I'm already looking forward to returning. Read more

Free pick-up information
We advise people to fly into Calicut airport (CCJ), North Kerala; we provide free pick-up from there on the morning of the retreat start date.
We ask people to arrange their flights to arrive on the morning of the retreat start date if they want to book the free pick-up, otherwise you can get a pre-paid taxi from the airport or we can arrange one for you at the usual local cost, which is around £50 and takes around 2-3 hours depending on traffic.
Etihad and Qatar airlines do good deals on flights via either Abu Dhabi, or Doha respectively. To find flights to Callicut (CCJ) also known as Khozikode we recommend http://www.skyscanner.net. It is a reliable website which gives you lots of choice.
Please note Kannur airport (CNN) has just been built and is only half an hour from the venue. At the time of writing the flights from Heathrow to Kannur were few and far between. Do check Kannur airport as they may have added more flights. Also an e-visa might not be accepted at this airport, be aware of that, please check it up before your application please.
You will need a tourist visa to come to India. You can either:
Please check your arrival airport before applying for the e-tourist visa. At the point of writing you can fly into Callicut airport on an e-visa.
You can apply for the e-visa between 30 days and up to 4 days before departure to India. It is probably easier to apply for than the regular tourist visa because everything is done online. Remember that you will need to print out your visa form and take it with you.
