Retreat and Teaching in Monastery

Retreat and Teaching in Monastery volunteering programs are conscious breaks that improve your spiritual, mental, inspirational, and physical fitness in the long run. A conscious holiday in Nepal will give you the possibility to relax comprehensively. Taking time with yourself and for yourself is an essential part of your itinerary. The retreat and teaching in the monastery program effectively help in dealing with stress and dissolve clutter and chaos from your mind. The strong ties Nepal has to Buddhist and Hindu traditions make it an ideal location for meditation retreats. Whether your interest in meditation is casual or you are a committed practitioner, the retreats in Nepal cater to both long-term and short-term needs.

From the unforgettable pilgrimage sites to the elegant ancient temples, Nepal will capture your heart. The country has a serene and mysterious atmosphere that can’t quite be put into words. This deeply spiritual nation gives you an opportunity to meditate in peace and quiet in different places.

The purpose of the retreat is to deepen the understanding of Dharma through intensive contemplation and integrating it into one’s mindstream, in a quiet place. Undisturbed by worldly activity, the mind has the opportunity to turn inward and explore our inner world.
