You will be staying at the Tse Chok Ling Monastery in the suburb of McLeod Ganj, which is often referred to as ‘Little Lhasa.’ The monastery is nestled in a refreshing deodar and oak tree forest, where 50 Tibetan Buddhist monks live onsite. Built on December 15, 1985 by Tashi Gyalsten Lama, the monastery is within walking distance to the home of his holiness, the 14th Dalai Lama, and the Tibetan government and community in exile.
The newly-built guest houses on site are clean, neat, and simple, with two twin beds and attached bathroom and balcony. Beautiful mountain views and sunsets can be admired from your balcony. Cleaning service will be done daily.
The self-healing mastery program is designed to identify the needs of your mind, body, and spirit in order to establish a new foundation from which to experience a better quality of life.
During the course, you will learn how to release ego deﬁciencies, emotional blockages, re-calibrate your cellular memory, and activate dormant DNA potentials. You will receive accessible skills that enable you to become self-sufﬁcient in improving your health, vitality, clarity, focus, careers, and relationships in life.
The retreat will take place in the beautiful Tibetan village of McLeodganj, Dharamsala. It is nestled in the lush green Kangra valley of Himachal Pradesh, India. It is known as “Little Lhasa” because of its large population of Tibetans. Many travelers find themselves enchanted with this Tibetan community and stay for a long time. Just strolling the streets of this village is an experience in itself.
Industrious Tibetan vendors set up their stalls along the narrow roads each morning, selling everything from antiques, jewelry, food, to prayer beads and handmade paper books, created by the children at the Tibetan Children’s Village. Tibetan women in their colorful aprons walk through the chorten in the center of town, turning the prayer wheels.
The people are so friendly each day with their warm greetings, stopping each other on the road as conversations flow easily. Even engaging in friendly conversation with the monks is a common occurrence. Mcleodganj is very safe and one of the cleanest, more westernized villages in India due to the Tibetan influence. Being the Dalai Lama’s home, Mcleodganj is the official abode of Tibetans in exile, where you can have a true Tibetan experience.
Just the vibration here will mesmerize you, opening your heart, expanding your consciousness and knowledge. The retreat will be held at the Tse Chok Ling Monastery hidden within the forest pines below Mcleodganj. This retreat will be an experience of a lifetime, one you will never forget!
If you are a first time visitor to India, you may experience cultural shock from just how different India is from other parts of the world. Be aware that it may be very emotionally overwhelming upon arriving in India, especially if you are beginning your journey in a big city like Delhi.
Universal aspects of the Indian culture include adorable cows wandering around the and streets, extreme poverty and street beggars (not too visible in Mcleodganj, but still some), a lot of color everywhere you look, monkeys making mischief among the trees or on the side of roads, sacred sites, temples, and monasteries.
Holy cities do not sell meat products or alcohol. Also, Siddhas, who are holy men who have renounced materialism and devoted their life to Shiva, usually wearing orange clothes, walk the streets of India. There are also fake siddhas, who are beggars in disguise. If they ask for money, they are usually not true siddhas.
