Awakening to Freedom: Yoga and Buddhism in the Kathmandu Valley

Mar 27, 2014 02:57AM

Are you ready to take off on the journey of a lifetime? Join Yoga Nepal from October 27 to November 7 for pilgrimage and practice in the sacred Kathmandu Valley. Tucked away in a fold of Himalayan hills, the Kathmandu Valley has long been a “power place” for pilgrims and seekers from India, the Himalayas and Tibet.

The journey will be led by HawaH, the creator and visionary behind the Poetry of Yoga Project. HawaH is known throughout the District of Columbia metro area as an artist, author, educator, yoga instructor and community organizer. He is also the co-founder and executive director of the nonprofit organization,

Participants on the journey will enjoy daily vinyasa yoga, pranayama and meditation classes with HawaH, guided pilgrimages to unforgettable Buddhist monasteries and temples throughout the spiritual heart-center of Nepal and teachings from Tibetan masters.

By participating in this journey, participants will see the world from a whole new perspective and connect with the sacred in the world, and within themselves. They will be encouraged to draw inspiration from the wisdom of ancient, living traditions, as they re-energize the body, open the heart and settle the mind in peace, within this community of like-minded yogis.
