We will spend 6 days together, keeping a mindfulness practice, having discussions, taking walks in the Rhododendron forests, getting an exposure to Tibetan culture and society, appreciating the natural beauty of the area surrounded by the white mountains of the Himalayas. All this while living in the guest-home run by His Holiness's brother and sister-in-law and/or the home/hotel of the local Maharaja.

We have an opportunity to travel in the company of a practiced guide, who will accompany the group.  We will spend 6 days together, maintaining the spirit of attentiveness. We will try to meet teachers and Rinpoches (including HH the Karmapa and HH the Dalai Lama if they are in their monasteries). visit the arts and cultural centre set up by His Holiness, the monastery of the ‘Oracle’ (if available), visit the nunnery in Palampur or the monastery in Bir, get an exposure to Tibetan culture and society, and soak in the natural beauty of the area surrounded by the white mountains of the Himalayas. All this whilst living in the guest-house run by His Holiness's brother and sister-in-law.

We are sure it will be a wonderful and fulfilling immersion into the living Dharma and an opportunity to visit a beautiful part of the Himalayas.

The journeys begin and end in Dharamshala. If you would like us to make arrangements for your arrival and departure, we are happy to assist.

NOTES:
A few points to take note of before you arrive for the Dharamshala Retreat. It may be useful to have this paper with you when you arrive in India:

His Holiness normally gives teachings everyday between 9 a.m. to 11:30 a.m. and 1:30 p.m. to 4:30 p.m. The teachings are given in Tibetan. However there is a simultaneous translation in English and we can pick it up on an FM radio with headphones. This is easily available in Dharamshala for a small sum.

 

*Forced single room supplement (in case we are not able to room you with anyone else) will be 40% of the single supplement)
