This is a truly magical adventure into Nepal. A land of mystery and tradition, mystics and mountains, rivers and jungles. Join us as we explore the ancient towns and villages of the Kathmandu valley, spend time in hilltop villages with magical mountain views at dawn. Trek through the jungle searching for rhinos and tigers – on elephant back and on foot. Raft the whitewaters of primordial rivers. Chill out in laid back Pokhara surrounded by the most spectacular lakes and mountains. Take a mountain flight into the heart of the majestic Himalayan ranges, and spend a couple of days trekking through the spectacular Nepalese mountains. Above and beyond all of this, you will experience a unique culture with some of the friendliest people you will ever meet.
Wellness is an active, lifelong process of becoming aware of choices and making decisions towards a more balanced and fulfilling Life. We search for the appropriate ‘tools’ and methods, the right nourishment to experience this richness and feed our most precious asset in Life – our Health and Wellbeing. The truth is that nothing nourishes you like NATURE! Unfortunately we have managed to disconnect, divorce from Nature and the life-giving force Nature provides. Here is your chance to facilitate a marriage again – join us on this amazing trip to the Himalayas and remarry Nature!
During the 16 days of this Incredible Journey through Nepal, You will learn various ways to Energise with Mother Nature, Re-Vitalize You and Connect with Your Natural Power. Through some simple, unique steps for living incorporated into our daily routine whilst on tour, you will learn how to return to your daily life at home, with the knowledge and skills, the ‘how to’ live and Reconnect with Nature from home.
Each day we’ll take time out, be it in an ancient Hindu temple, out in the jungle or forest, on the side of a hill during a trek or in a Buddhist monastery to practice some form of reconnection. We might spend 10 minutes meditating. Perhaps we’ll use Shaitsu and Tai Chi principles to learn how to shift energy around our bodies. Working on various ways of enhancing your awareness and how to best facilitate a nourishing energy flow for you and Your Body, so that you experience pure Joy and vitality in being with Nature. Whatever we do, you’ll feel energized, harmonized and reconnected. And we’ll have the help of the energy of the mightiest mountains on earth – the Himalayas, abode of the Gods!
