Yoga and Meditation
Trekking and Meditation is a new and highly effective Concept, to achieve in short time a deep relaxation, which creates the ability to take advantage of ones own way to permanent joy and contentedness, while one is trekking through the magnificent mountain world of the Himalayas.
By that we fall back on the since centuries experienced Buddhist techniques of Tibet and Nepal, which we combine well-directed with our trekking- programs. Beside of that you will have the opportunity to gain a deep, personal impression into the probably last ancient wisdom-culture of this planet, which remained in the remote Himalayan valleys unchanged in an unbroken tradition up to our age.
The Tibetan term for ‘meditation’ is gom, which signifies something like “to get used to…” This means, to make the mind used to contents, which are leading to lasting happiness and at the same time to recognize through experience the ones which will bring misfortune on oneself. We distinguish between ‘concentrative meditation’, which will provide the basic tools and ‘analytical meditation’, which is examination or analyzing the contents of the mind in diverse ways. Both techniques we will pass on you by a more than eight hundred year’s old Tibetan system, which we slightly modified to this age and our trekking-tours.
To experience the benefits of this program you don’t have to be a convinced Buddhist. People who are interested in the functions of ones own mind of all traditions can benefit, particularly also ones, which already practice yoga or other meditative techniques.
The whole meditation-program will be arranged as agreed with you at the beginning of the tour, according to your personal needs, wishes and previous experiences. This concerns the contents as well as the durations of the combined teaching- and meditation-settings. To have a rough idea you should count with three settings a day of 30-60 minutes each, which is embedded in the daily trekking-program. Because some meditations should be extended into the walking-times, there will be some times of silence and other exercises as agreed. Whenever possible we will meditated in free nature, but, according to the tour, also at specially blessed places, which are connected to famous Buddhist sages of ancient or present ages. Our experienced meditation-teacher will be also available for your personal questions between the meditation-settings. As agreed in advance, there are also special retreat-programs for experienced Buddhists possible.
The experiences you gain during this unique and unforgettable journey will be helpful in your daily life too, to achieve more joy and contentedness and you can use the techniques you learned at home as well.
