This Aman Spiritual Healing Retreat is led by internationally renowned Buddhist Monk, Geshe Chaphur Rinpoche and will be in-house from 29th September to 7th October at the luxury resort Amantaka in Luang Prabang, Laos. Embark on a 6 night, healthy holiday experience with this revered Rinpoche to learn the Tibetan practice of Keksel Yoga.
The five elements of fire, wind, space, water and earth, are the foundation of Tibetan medicine, with the core belief that everything in this universe is made of these five elements and therefore they are responsible for the formation of each cell in our bodies. Expect group, morning breathing exercises, twice daily training sessions and evening chanting and mantra sessions with Geshe Chaphur Rinpoche.
