Mindful Journey: Love and Letting Go

October 3-9, 2010 | Workshop 20 hours

October 9-17, 2010, Himalayan Trek

This program, which takes place in the beautiful and inspirational Kathmandu Valley, is designed to integrate mindful awareness with heartfulness to transform relationships, optimize happiness, and heal the body. We will utilize both theory and practice to explore self compassion, forgiveness, and letting go and also examine the impact of fear, avoidance, thought fusion, attachment, loss, and intimacy on brain structure and neurochemistry. An emphasis will be placed on the application of Imago techniques, grief literature, and Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT).

This workshop will empower you to help your clients live and love more mindfully in all of their intimate relationships.

This will take place against a dazzling backdrop of Hindu and Buddhist Temples, medieval town squares, and wonderful, warmhearted people. For those who wish to continue their travels after the workshop, we will be leading a six-night teahouse trek in the Annapurna Region.

We hope you will join us on this journey.

Oct. 3-9 We arrive at in Kathmandu and transfer to the Vajra Hotel, a lovely oasis above the bustling heart of the city. Participants will come together that evening for a program orientation and the workshop will begin the next day. Interspersed with the seminar will be tours throughout the Valley, from the great Stupa and Monasteries of Boudhanath to the ancient town centers of Patan and Bhaktapur, from the ghats of Pahupatinath to the craft shops of Thamel
