Meredith asked Elizabeth Gilbert:

Elizabeth what is your advice for a 25 year old writer who is looking into Ashrams retreats or stays? Stay in the states or go abroad? Volunteer more or less during the stay? Etc. I watched your Ted talk on the creative process and it was beyond helpful. I really look up to you Lovingly, Meredith

Elizabeth Gilbert Hi Meredith! Get your hands on a book called FROM HERE TO NIRVANA: THE YOGA JOURNAL GUIDE TO SPIRITUAL TRAVEL. It will tell you all that you need! All I can say is this: If you are being called to go on a spiritual journey, go. :)
