Summary

The first week we settle in beautiful locations surrounding the Kathmandu Valley and visit some of the most revered Buddhist pilgrimage sites in the world. The second week we hike in the foothills of the Himalayas, walking in the footsteps of fully realised yogis and yoginis, as we visit monasteries and nunneries that are nestled inside a ‘pure-land’.

The yoga and meditation theme will be weaved into our days, both in the Kathmandu Valley and in the Himalayan foothills, as we embark on an inner and outer journey through Nepal.

We start the day by exploring the inner experience of awakening in ourselves, as well as grounding our awareness into the body through yoga in the afternoon sessions we enhance the experience by becoming pilgrims and yogis. We explore the outer element of sacredness and the culture of awakening by visiting, and paying homage to the many sacred temples and shrines in the Kathmandu Valley. Evening meditation after dinner.

There is no prerequisite for joining a pilgrimage, nor is it required to have any knowledge or experience with the practice of meditation. Simply, to have the wish to go deeper with one’s mind, and to have curiosity regarding its functions is enough. There is nothing religious about the practice of meditation or in visiting sacred places. In fact, there is nothing even Buddhist about it! The idea of pilgrimage here means that while we are exploring sacred sites, we are also investigating ourselves with a ‘tried & true’ internal/contemplative process called meditation. The practise of meditation is simply a tool to bring your mind back to a place of naked awareness, to a place of basic space with yourself and the environment.

What's included in the package

  • Healthy, vegetarian meals
  • Daily Dharma talks & introduction to meditation

Teachers

Lisa Mikoscha
This yoga & meditation journey in Nepal will be jointly facilitated by yoga instructor Lisa Mikosch and an experienced Himalayan Hermitage facilitator. Originally from Germany, Lisa first stepped onto a yoga mat in Argentina in 2007 and was introduced to Ashtanga Yoga and fell in love with the practice.

The Yoga practice quickly became a big part of her life as she began to recognise the ability to transform, nurture and heal body, mind and soul. For Lisa, teaching comes from a playful and heart-centred perspective where she aims to inspire her students to move into a place of loving empowerment and to create a sacred space and willingness to feel everything there is to feel.

Lisa currently shares Yoga, Reiki and Craniosacral therapy in Kathmandu, encouraging her students to go deep, to live in service, and to be free from systems that don’t serve us.
