Since before the beginning of recorded history, people have consulted oracles. This is a practice common to both western and eastern traditions. Oracles solve problems, give advice and foretell the future. But if you think oracles are only a thing of the past, you are wrong. They are still an important part of the Tibetan culture that is very much alive in Ladakh, India, where miracles seem to be performed. How can a monk who is blindfolded make acrobatic leaps between the rooftops of buildings? Are they really guided by spirits? You can experience these ancient traditions yourself in an up-coming tour from Body Mind Spirit Journeys. Watch this short video by the tour host, Lisa Tully… The “Mystics of Ladakh” Tour is slated for March 6 – 19, 2014. This 14-day program gives you the rare opportunity to witness the oracles, shamans and other ancient cultural traditions of Tibet that still exist in Ladakh, India.read more
The dates for our Buddhist meditation retreat in India have now been set for March 6 through 24, 2012. The dates were selected to coordinate the tour with a very rare public teaching His Holiness the Dalai Lama will be giving. After serving for such a long time as a spiritual leader, it is understandable that HHDL should begin to cut back on his schedule. He gave three days of teachings in Dharamsala last month, but next March his teaching will be limited to only one morning, which our group will attend. As time passes, such opportunities to be in the presence of this great spiritual master become more and more rare and important.
The majority of the program will be a ten-day silent retreat at the Tushita Meditation Centre in Mcleod Ganj. The tour is hosted by Lisa Tully, who is originally from Ireland, and Buga Tire, a Tibetan lama.
