Yoga and meditation retreat with a cultural tour in Sri Lanka
The trip begins with a 3 days-visit of the country to discover the cultural, touristic and spiritual scene, enjoy the life in the mountains and by the sea, the kindness of Sri Lanka inhabitants and the typical « rice and curry » meal as well as discovering the fauna and flora of Sri Lanka, elephants in sight !
We will then spend two days/nights at Embilipitiya buddhist monastery with Ven. Omalpe Sobhita Thero where we will meet with monks and novices (little monks). We will take part in spiritual activities with the monks including the monthly Poya day celebration on February 11th, 2017, day of the full moon which is a public holiday every month in Sri Lanka.
We will then stop for 7 days for a yoga and meditation retreat in a meditation centre in the mountains south of the island. You will receive teachings of the Buddhist way of life to be happy. You will practice yoga and meditation and use that time to find and replenish yourself. Ven. Omalpe Sobhita Thero, boudhist monk and founder of the meditation center, will be our guide and teacher for that stay.
After the retreat, we will travel to Adam’s Peak (Sripada) to discover Sri Lanka from the mountain tops and then, we will go to Kandy, the capital, to give offerings to Buddha at the majestic Buddha’s Tooth Temple.
All transportation will be in minibus with air conditioning. We will stay in pleasant and simple hotels. We will eat local meals which are mainly vegetarian.
