07 Απρ Magical Journey 2017 – Nepal & Bhutan
Lands of light & enlightenment
On the top of the world among untrodden peaks and staggering landscape beauty lies a primeval civilization that flourishes for thousands of years now.
From Nepal’s Pokhara to Tiger’s Nest in Bhutan, people have been living in harmony and in accordance with the Buddhist traditions in a minimal yet fulfilling way that transfuses awareness and plenitude in their daily lives.
This journey presents the opportunity to deepen into the ancient script “Dhammapada” under the guidance of Konstantinos Charantiniotis, who will lead our practice in yoga and help us unfold through meditation -with his rich and prompt teaching- the principles of this ancient text for a life based on peace, compassion and self-purpose.
For all seekers of authenticity, truth, unspoiled natural beauty and hunters of unique experiences, this trip to Nepal and Bhutan is nothing but the ultimate initiation procedure to a world where the boundaries between spirituality and mystery succeed to remain infinitely vague.
Truly a one-off chance that provides unlimited yet indelible scenes of natural beauty, sights, tradition, ethics, customs, people and culture as well as valuable life tools to heal the body and nourish the spirit.
