For some of you, filling your cup doesn't come in the form of sitting by the pool with a cocktail and about a hundred other tired, overworked people, it means getting outside, seeing something that blows your mind and doing things that leave you feeling empowered and enlivened. Sound familiar? Yea. Let's do something amazing with the time you have, and let me tell you, Nepal is amazing.
The trip starts in Kathmandu, exploring a culture steeped in history and spirituality, touring the religious relics, temples and stupas of both Buddhist and Hindu traditions. Yoga and meditation will be offered each day to unwind from the intensity of a bustling city.
We will then journey into the Himalayas to the Khumbu region to bear witness to the greatest mountains on earth. This land is full of magic- surrounded by idyllic mountains and countryside, free from technology and the intensity of modern society clarity of mind and spirit quickly set in, reconnecting with our soulful side and tapping into strength and power never even imagined. Each day's trek will be challenging but far from impossible, giving us the opportunity to prove to ourselves how incredibly strong and capable we are. Spending our days in the presence of the Earth's behemoths will both humble and inspire, connecting us back to the roots of who we are and what makes us tick.
