Ever dreamed of traveling to India but don’t want to do so alone? Perhaps you would you like to attending public teachings by the Dalai Lama in Dharamsala and learn meditation to bring real change into your life? Or maybe you would prefer to explore the shamanic side of Tibetan Buddhism where you can witness a completely different belief system of oracles, shamans, healing and divination? We run two specialist tours, the Tibetan Path Tour to Dharamsala and our most recent addition the Mystics of Ladakh Tour to Leh which give you all of this & so much more. Let us safely take you into this incredible land where you will find freedom from the norm to answer the spiritual calls of your heart…
We specialise in SPIRITUAL TOURS to India that have been designed to not only give you the best external experience but the best internal one also. Our Tibetan Path Tour takes you on a journey where you attend public teachings by His Holiness the 14th Dalai Lama and then onto the wonderful Tushita center where you learn to meditate. Our Mystics of Ladakh Tour takes you to attend festivals of future predicting oracles and healing shamans amongst so many other magical experiences and interactions with this ancient and partly hidden culture.
By joining our Tibetan Path Tour you will not only learn from the Dalai Lama, the great compassionate Tibetan master, but you will also experience first hand the immense power of this man’s heart as he heals you just by simply being around you.
You will then have the opportunity to learn Buddhist meditation techniques from monks and nuns of the Dalai Lama lineage at the globally renowned Tushita retreat center. Bringing home with you the sacred skill of meditation, a souvenir that will last and enhance many things for you in this lifetime and beyond! We will take you to attend sacred Tibetan rituals and an English speaking tour host will be there to guide you every step of the way ensuring your safe passage.
Ladakh is a place that is dripping in culture. Up until 1974 it was closed off from the outside world which means its traditions are still a living breathing part of everyday life. Before the arrival of Buddhism they practiced a more shamanic type of religion called Bon. Both belief systems fused together which resulted in the tradition of oracles and shamans.
Oracles give assistance by becoming vehicles for particular spirits, during which they speak with the very voice of the spirit. The most famous ones in Ladakh are those of Matho Gompa, one of the festivals we attend during our tour. We also attend the Stok Oracle festival as well as attending a more local shamanic session with a female lay oracle where the opportunity for personal healing should you want it is there.
We will also spend time in the homes of the local people praying, eating and simply enjoying their unique way of life as we relax and let our woes melt away. No doubt coming back from it all deeply changed.
The souvenir of the Ladakh trip is a Green Tara mantra. We will meet with a Rinpoche or high level monk who will give us a Green Tara blessing so that every time we say the mantra it has more power to heal. We will also pay a visit to a Tara temple in the Tibetan Quarter of Delhi where repeating the mantra there or making even a small nominal donation to her statue will reap greater results for our prayers if they are for the highest good.
Both destinations of our tours will give you a taste of Tibetan culture that is fast becoming a rarity in Tibet itself. We will educate you about these displaced people and you will learn from them first hand what they have experienced. And should you wish the opportunity will be there to help them.
We are as concerned about our sacred planet as you are and the local community we work in. Therefore we aim to work only with local partners who share the same ethos as we do of RESPONSIBLE TRAVEL. We also make sure we give back to the local communities by donating time and money and creating employment and awareness around any issues they may have.
Sign up soon dear friends and join us for this precious life we have is so so short.
