    The Inspiration:

    We are a group of 15 - 25 international musicians, peace & joy activists and supporters - accompanied by a film- and foto-crew. We join for a unique adventure of love, connection and togetherness. We are dedicated to share our gifts and to have a positive impact to the people we meet, to society and to the world as a whole. We are in a joyful service to the Win-Win-Wins.

     

    Duration:

    You can join the journey....
    >> for the full length of 2 months

    >> or for any duration you wish

    >> the minimal commitment is 1 week

    >> join: you can join us at any one of the defined HUBS (see itinerary below)

    >> leave: you can leave wherever you want
     

     

    Short:
    We go India, we go love, we go joy, we go connecting with high vibe and we go sacredly crazy.

    That’s it. The rest will be history.

     
     

    Mission:

    We love life and we share the love.

    We bring peace, joy, connection to the people we meet and to the world.

    We co-create & realise ideas to make this JourneyTo☆theStars a unique venture with positive impact.

     
     

    Impact: Win-Win-Win

    Our aim is to create positive impacts and Win-Win-Wins along the way.

    How to do so? Singing, dance and art alone is a means to connect and create moments of beauty and togetherness. But there's much more. I'm curious to hear about your tools, ideas and inspirations. I have a few of those myself....;-)

     

    1. Win: for us, for myself. Through this journey we fly, we nourish and inspire ourselves. You will gain visibility, network and experiences - for whatever you are doing and in whichever field you are active.
    2. Win: for others, for whoever we meet. We bring joy, attention and inspiration to the people and friends we meet along the way. We connect....and offer a plattform to gain visibility and possibly support from a wider audience.
    3. Win: for the world. We plant positive seeds of joy, peace and inspiration that grow. We try to be role-models and sources of inspirations for others to follow the example.

     

    Rough itinerary & timetable

    See below.

     
     

    Media, social Media:

    As a means of impact & communication I would like to have
    > a fotografer
    > a filmer
    > a FB, Insta, Tiktok-afficionado/a
    on board. Please connect. :-)

     
     

    Transport:

    We rent (or buy) an indian passenger bus for us to travel. No upperclass-aircon-thing. Let’s go rustic and really indian. The bus will have a driver and about 50 seats. This allows some space. And allows us to take along local farmers, market-women, families…whatever we meet along the way and needs a lift. Let’s make this a journey of joy to whoever we meet, let’s share good-vibes and give a hand wherever we can.

    Accomodation:

    In guest houses and hotels along the way - to be chosen individually according to your budget.

     
     

    Costs, contributions:
    Ideally this peace & upliftment venture is funded through sponsors, foundations and socio-spiritual change angels. An intelligent Win-Win-Win business model is to be implemented.
    >> Fundraisers, connecters, good-doers & sponsors with heart & spirit: PLEASE ON BOARD.


    As long as complete funding is not assured a personal contribution from each participant is needed to cover the basic costs.

    We also will talk about a eco-social impact compensation to make this journey a positive contribution to the Win-Win-Wins.

    All details are in the pipeline. Stay tuned for further details.

     
     

    Selected individuals, friends and supporters

    If you don’t consider yourself a musicians, juggler or active peace-worker...

    Namaste

    My name is Kilian and I'll be happy to tell you more about me once I'll find the right moment....;-) For now in short: I work as a Speaker & Master of Ceremony - Group facilitator - Social enterpreneur - Socio-spiritual activist - Musician - Dance, Yoga, Meditation-teacher.... and much more.

    As a young adventurer I left for my first long trip to Asia in 1991. I was thirsty for the wisdom of the East. And I was looking for a radical contrast to my tiny, well-organised homecountry of Switzerland. As I arrived in India I immediately knew that THIS IS IT: Wild, crazy, colorful, blissful, cruel, chaotic, full of wonders, full of magic, full of delusion, tricksters & cheaters, beyond comprehension and far from common-sense all together. I was in awe. I was in heaven. I was in hell. And I returned again and again. Since 2003 I support several schools & homes for the destitute and children in Kerala, mainly through networking & fundraising. All together I spent over 3 years of my life in South Asia. And I just can't get enough...

    I feel blessed to open you the doors to some truely breathtaking treasures & hidden pearls of the subcontinent. Join me on this JourneyTotheStars.....and back down to our beautiful Mother Earth.
