“Tour Neykor” is suited for everyone seeking to use mindfulness and compassion in their daily life, including non-Buddhists. Khedrupchen Rinpoche will offer attendees advice on some of today’s most urgent issues, such as how to cultivate mindfulness at work and in intimate settings.

The itinerary includes stops in four cities: Thimphu, Bumthang, Trongsa, and Paro. Punakha Dzong, Kyichu Lhakhang, and the awe-inspiring Tiger’s Nest aka Taktsang Monastery are all must-sees.

Spiritual Immersive Retreat

“Neykor” mixes spiritual practice with the act of being in direct contact with nature, and it is the word for pilgrimage in Dzongkha, Bhutan’s official language. Many people think that certain locations on Earth have the ideal topographical and geographical alignments and settings. The landscapes of such places are imbued with restorative energy, making them ideal places to rediscover inner calm and happiness.

Overcoming Challenges at the Workplace

Can caring for others and achieving corporate goals coexist? When difficulties arise, how may grace be extended? Mini-workshops, Dharma presentations, and meditation sessions will teach participants about the practical applications of compassion in business, making this retreat ideal for business owners or executives who are striving to overcome obstacles at work. Neykor’s ultimate purpose is to help its followers achieve enlightenment by visiting holy sites associated with Guru Rinpoche and Yeshe Tshogyal, two of the most revered saints in Tibetan Buddhism.
