NOV 2021 — BHUTAN — Tantric Journey Through the Inner and Outer Worlds 

Connect with your highest self, learn ancient wisdom teachings, and be immersed in the culture and spiritual depth of the Himalayas…this journey combines personal discovery with day hikes, monastery visits, Buddhist teachings, a village homestay, a mask dance festival, and more! The days will blend regional exploration (the outer world) with activities to explore the inner world: guided meditation and relaxation, writing & reflection, small-group sharing, somatic practice, cultivating intention, etc. Both the inner and outer explorations will incorporate the rich traditions and iconography of Tantric Buddhism.

We will visit famous sights such as the Tiger’s Nest, along with more off-the-beaten path temples and towns, deep in remote corners of the country where tourists rarely reach. Throughout our journey, you can also enjoy a traditional hot stone bath, archery, Bhutanese meals, village visits, local markets, and a relaxing massage.

Prior experience with meditation or Buddhism is not required. What is most important is that you bring a willingness to explore yourself, explore Bhutan, and be open to the experience. This is a journey of personal exploration steeped in the rich spiritual heritage of the region, while welcoming and accepting your personal faith and beliefs.

17 days, 7 days trekking, 6-10 people
