Program Overview

SET IN THE CROSSROADS OF ANCIENT HIMALAYAN TRADE ROUTES AND PERCHED IN A REMOTE NOOK OF NORTH INDIA


The land of Ladakh is home to the confluence of a myriad of spiritual systems.  The landscape, stark and awe-inspiring, reflects the profundity of these Buddhist and earth-based traditions.  From the towering peak of Stok Kangri to the fertile upper reaches of the Indus River, Ladakhi culture and worldview is one that continues to honor outer and inner worlds.  In this journey across the Tibetan Plateau, we contemplate these rich Himalayan traditions and traverse the convergence of landscape, human experience, and that which is sacred.

Our sojourn takes us to monasteries, cave hermitages, remote villages, and storied geographical sites.  We engage with Buddhist teachers, village elders, and shamanic oracles who carry the traditions that have captivated Western Psychology in recent decades.  We explore Tibetan Buddhism and examine how this 2,000 year old ancient wisdom informs modern psychological ideologies.  Through teachings, discussions, and experiential practices, we live universally human questions and examine the innate desire of our own psyches to connect with a form greater than self.
