Instructors

Ramabuddha
Ramabuddha is famous for his uncommon approach to helping people open to themselves in a new and genuine way. He knows that it is not possible for an effort to bring you to a real meditative state. It is relaxation in the moment that you must discover. If it cannot be found in the moment, it cannot be found anywhere. This approach is the path of mysticism, the awakening to the eternal flower. His focus is not on a certain technique. In fact, the technique may change at different stages of the process.

Retreat location

This YTT course is happening in the beautiful Himalayan mountains of Dharamsala. You will find the teaching hall at the lovely place of Upper Bhagsu (10 minutes by rickshaw from Mcgleodj) which is welcoming with wonderful mountain view and a variety of cheap accommodation, handicraft shops, restaurants, and course canters.

The town is surrounded by woods of pine and deodar and below it, is the wide expanse of the plains. This is the base for a variety of excursions and centre of pilgrimage during the main season from March to July.
