GesheLa Teaches at Amangani, USA ‘ Meditation in the Mountains’
October 11 - October 15
OCTOBER 11-15, AMANGANI (USA)
5 Nights, Meditation in the Mountains Retreat
Perched on East Gros Ventre Butte with awe-inspiring views of the Grand Tetons and Jackson Hole, Amangani blends the serenity and strength of its pristine natural setting into its wellness concept and is designed for all seasons – to support skiers in winter and those exploring nature in summer.
This unique spiritual retreat reflects humankind’s search for peace – the main pillar of Aman and the meaning of its Sanskrit-derived name. A profound journey to this elusive state, this five-night retreat will be led by renowned Buddhist monk and mindfulness coach, Geshe YongDong.
He will share the ancient lessons of the Bon Tibetan Tradition, gently teaching participants to find peace within. Based on the belief that peace is an internal state of consciousness that promotes true happiness without external motivation, this retreat will be a true journey, with Geshe YongDong guiding individuals through the different stages to achieving this enlightened state of being. These include changing perceptions, letting go and acceptance, as well as achieving the union of compassion and wisdom, healing anger and living mindfully.
Born in Tibet in 1969, Geshe YongDong became a monk at just seven years of age. A gifted scholar and musician, he was awarded the Rajampa Geshe Degree – the highest degree in Tibetan monastic education – in 1992. He also studied and practiced under H.H. the 14th Dalai Lama, receiving numerous empowerments. In 2001, Geshe YongDong moved to Vancouver Island in Canada, from where he has taught philosophy and YungDrung Bon Buddhism – one of only a handful of masters in the tradition worldwide – ever since.
The retreat will include twice-daily meditation including breath work and Tsa Lung practice, as well as a 90- minute therapeutic spa treatment, and one hike.
