The seminar

Nepal is one of the richest countries in the world in terms of spirituality and happi- ness. This is so, at least in part, not despite the country’s poverty but because of it.

This amazing country where inner rewards are valued more highly than material ones offers lessons, both in personal growth and in leader- ship. Here the two are always intertwined. Thus, Nepal offers an almost perfect opportunity to discover and make use of your untapped potential of body, mind and soul.

In a more and more economically and socially challenging environment, 2018 is just the right moment to participate in this training. It is YOU who can learn again how to use your untapped potential in body, mind and soul.

Stress management, staff motivation, cost pressures and communication with and within companies stand right at the top of the agenda of your every day activity.

In the real world of business, you, as many other managers, are often stretched to the limits (or beyond?) of your physical and mental capabilities. This has a major impact on your leadership behavior and also on your job satisfaction.

And in the same way it has a tremendous impact on the way you are leading your personal as well as your professional life.

Would it be valuable for you to learn practically how to bear all of these factors in mind, body and soul amidst ever new and daily challenges?

How would your life change if you preserved and developed a sense of joy in creating when torn between work load and a desire to achieve?

How would your life change if you focused even more on the change of negative stress into positive stress?

Why don’t you consider a different way to make use of your untapped potential and thus achieve your goals?

Nineteen days in Nepal combining vigorous trekking, daily workshops, amazing mountains, great power places, staying in Serang Gompa – a Buddhist monastery at high altitude – and quiet time for introspection will lead you to reach again the peaks of yourself. Enjoy the lessons in leadership from the Himalayas. Enjoy a different life.

The programme

Day 1: 6th Oct. Arrival

Morning-Arrival in Kathmandu. (Recom- mended Turkish Airlines via Istanbul) Airport meet-n-greet and hotel check in; Annapurna Hotel / Shanker Hotel /or equivalent

Day 2: 7th Oct. Kathmandu

In Kathmandu. Morning initial program, afternoon free for sightseeing.

Day 3: 8th Oct. From Kathmandu (1.300 m) to Soti Khola (700m)

Travel from Kathmandu to Arughat by local bus – an eight-hour drive west on roads which pass through hills and cultivated valleys. From Kathmandu (1.300 m.) the drive goes over the Valley rim to about 2.100 m., then descends on a fairly good road to Trisuli (540 m.). From here the road is rougher. Finally 1 hour trek to Soti Khola. Overnight in town.

Day 4: 9th Oct. Trek to Tatopani (990 m)

Head to Machha Khola (930m) but pass it by on a lower trail (800 m) and then follow the river north, first through an impressive gorge and then above the river, to Tatopani. Enjoy an evening shower at the natural hot springs. The first part of the day is easy going, but the last hours are always somewhat steep… (approx. 8 – 10 h walking)

Day 5: 10th Oct. Trek to Jagat (1.440 m)

Heading to Jagat means enjoying a phantastic landscape seen from long suspension bridges and down into deep valleys, impressive gorge and very old and still inhabited houses…

Day 6: 11th Oct. From Jagat to Deng (2.560 m)

Follow up the valley all day, past the disused Tibetan refugee trails. This means walking up and down for almost 2.000 alt. meters! Next to the Ganesh Himal snowy massif (5.800m), always guiding you towards the beginning of the “hidden valley”.

Day 7: 12th Oct. From Deng (2.560 m) to Bhi Village (2.500 m)

From this point you are in a glacial valley rather than a water-cut valley as lower, and the gorge rises abruptly on both sides. To the north the Manaslu massif looms. Once you cross the border of the land of Serang you are in “the holy land of the hidden valley” once taken from the Tibet side in 12th century AC. (approx. 8 hours walk)

Day 8: 13th Oct. From Bhi Village (2.500 m) to Serang Monastery (3.200m)

Since hundreds of years the land is cultivated by the monks and nuns of the two monasteries being built here in 15th & 16th century AC, with even older retreat centers in rock caves. Only the first part of the day (approx.12h walking in total) is easy going, but the last hours are a really hallenging pilgrimage… You may have some mild altitude symptoms here. The pilgrims consider it a sign of Shiva’s blessing.

Day 9 – 11: 14th – 16th Oct.

Be a special guest and have a rest in Serang Gompa at 3.200 m. A world of peace and dedication to Buddha and teaching of "abandoned" children.

Be guest of the “abbot” Nuptul Tenpei Nyima Rinpoche with whom I have been working for 10 years. The importance of basic education is self-evident in the modern world as the effects of globalization continue to be far-reaching. Unfortunately, education remains a privilege of the richer families in Nepal, where public schools are limited in number and generally poorly managed. In the region near Nuptul Tenpei Nyima Rinpoche’s hometown, 20 villa- ges share 3 humble schools. To fill the need for basic education and make it accessible to underprivileged children regardless of their gender, ethnicity, caste and religion, Serang Primary School is established. With some finan- cial support, construction for the school has begun on the compounds of Sangchen Rabten Norbuling (Serang Monastery). Recently, a ground breaking ceremony took place.

Day 12 – 16: 17 th – 21st Oct.

Trek to the pass (3.800m ) and down to Ghap village (3.000 m) and all the way back to Soti Khola (last night on the trek)

From Ghap to Kathmandu, the trail is a rather exciting visit of rain forest, then descends into the valley through oak and rhododendron forests, with some pine at lower altitudes. Visit old villages and agricultural sites (wheat, corn, rice and barley).

Day 17: 22nd Oct.

Drive back to Kathmandu by local bus.

Day 18: 23rd Oct. Kathmandu

In Kathmandu; closing program.

Day 19: 24th Oct. Departure

Depart for home in the afternoon /evening.

Programme may be subject to changes due to weather conditions /force majeure / acts of god without prior notice.
