The lamrim or the “graduated path” is a presentation of Shakyamuni Buddha’s teachings that details the stages in the complete path to enlightenment. In the single-pointed Lamrim meditation, you will focus your mind on one single object at a time and walk through the various stages to liberation. Lama Zopa Rinpoche has recently given new advice suggesting that students follow a lamrim outline and meditate on each subject for two weeks or one month until all subjects have been completed.
Rinpoche advised “The amount of time for meditation is up to the individual, but the general advice is to finish the lamrim in one year”. Depending on the duration of your stay, you will be introduced to one or various meditations and teach you how to continue this beautiful path.

The Ayurvedic massage is a key part of the Ayurvedic therapy. Just as a machine needs to be oiled, the body loves to have its largest organ, the skin, soothed, which is the reason oils are used in this massage. Whether the Ayurvedic massage forms part of a more comprehensive Ayurveda programme or is merely undertaken for the sheer pleasure of a deeply relaxing, indulgent body massage.
The Ayurvedic massage is one of ancient India’s best-kept secrets. Over 5,000 years of empirical research has refined Ayurvedic massage into a sublime art and yet it is still unheard of by many. However, combining skilled knowledge of the body with the knowledge of oils and bodywork techniques has resulted in a profound art for balancing the body and the mind through the medium of oil massage.
Its calm approach means that the recipients are not only induced into a relaxed state during the massage but they also often report an improvement in their sleep patterns and a general sense of wellbeing. In an ideal world, Ayurvedic massage would be carried out daily to help keep at bay the effects that everyday stresses and strains can have on our minds and bodies. Carlos, a great Ayurveda therapist, studied these techniques in India and Barcelona and practices for many years.
Reiki is a Japanese technique for stress reduction and relaxation that also promotes healing. It is administered by "laying on hands" and it is based on the idea that an unseen "life force energy" flows through you and is what causes you to be alive. If one's "life force energy" is low, then you are more likely to get sick or feel stressed, and if it is high, you are more capable of being happy and healthy.
The word Reiki is made of two Japanese words, Rei, which means "God's Wisdom or the Higher Power" and Ki which is "life's force energy". So Reiki is actually "spiritually guided life force energy". A treatment feels like a wonderful glowing radiance that flows through and around you. Reiki treats the whole person including the body, his emotions, the mind, and spirit creating many beneficial effects that include relaxation and feelings of peace, security, and wellbeing.
