himalayan mindwalks

himalayan mindwalks

himalayan spaces are of an extraordinary beauty and power

the transparent blue air of high altitudes carries the clarity of a crystal. the physical challenge of moving beyond your comfort zone invites you to explore your inner boundaries, to let go of whatever is moving your mind (because you simply do not have oxygen to waste on irrelevant thoughts). once you acclimatize well, there is a great power and clarity, which intensifies as you climb higher, bringing you to spaces of deep insight and personal transformation.

in recognizing the beauty & sacredness of the spaces we travel through, we reinstate individual & collective appreciation of their great global significance as sanctuaries of natural power and regenerative value.

the himalaya mandala

over a span of 4 years, in 8 individual stages, we will traverse the himalaya range from east to west. the intention is to symbolically lay a trace of light through this magnificent mountain range. thereby creating awareness and calling attention to the preciousness of these powerful sanctuaries of nature.

each tour is dedicated to one of the ashtamangala, the 8 auspicious buddhist symbols. an invitation and inspiration to reflect on our essential human values. open to experiencing the moment – inside and outside ourselves, we connect with nature’s beauty and the cultural depth of its inhabitants’ heritages.
