NEPAL 2018

February 26th – March 18th 2018   “Drinking from the source”, a journey to Nepal with Jacomina Kistemaker with a course in tibetan singing bowls, voice, tingshas, meditations, concerts, sacred places and the beautiful nature in a trekking in the Himalayan region.

Jacomina is taking again 1 group of máx 12-13 persons to Nepal for a magic and initiatic journey full of sounds and music, meditation, direct contact with her Nepalese friends and visits to some of the projects of het NGO Mitrata Nepal Spain. We travel like pelgrims, the least possible like tourists, conecting as much as posible with the real life of the Nepalies in all their splendor and difficulties. As a touch of gold we go to Pokhara and do a trekking in the awesome nature of the mountains of the pre-Himalayan Anapurna region.
You’re very welcome to travel with me!!!
