For many, life has become a tireless race towards a big goal that they think will transform their lives. Those who believe that the journey is long and uncomfortable never reach their destination. They key is to tap into your higher self and unleash your full capacity for success and happiness.
WHAT IS A MASTERMIND TRIP?
A Mastermind trip offers a combination of brainstorming, education, peer accountability and support in a group setting. Participants may challenge each other to accomplish their goals.
A mastermind group helps you and your mastermind group members achieve your trip’s goals. A Mastermind can be business, self-development or spiritual oriented or a combination of them.
Through a mastermind group process, first you create a goal, then a plan to achieve it. The group helps you with ideas and decisions-making (nobody is forced to share, though).
The group requires willingness to both give and receive advice and ideas, and support each other with honesty and respect.
Mastermind group members act as a sort of catalysts for growth. This is the essence of a Mastermind trip.
A Mastermind is not a class, group coaching or a networking group.
THE LANGTANG VALLEY TREK, NEPAL
The Langtang Valley trek is a moderate trek that takes you to the valley surrounded by mountains without gaining any strenuous altitude level. Langtang is located 20 miles north of Kathmandu and is one of the lesser spoiled national parks of Nepal. The park boundary extends all the way to the Tibetan border.
The Langtang Valley trek can be can be a perfect place to experience the Tibetan life style and culture as is home to ethnically diverse people: the Tamangs, Yolmus and Bhotias, who originated from Tibet. Throughout the trail towards Langtang valley, one can witness several Buddhist monasteries, brightly painted Chhortens, Mani walls, fluttering prayer flags and Tibetan styled houses scattered at a little distance.
The peaks that can be seen in this trek are the Langtang Himal, Dorje Lakpa, Langshisa, and Ganja La pass. Yala peak stands out and Tibetan ranges can be seen from its summit.
HIMALAYAN MASTERMIND TREK on SELF-DEVELOPMENT
Our Mastermind trek in Langtang will focus on self-development.
This 9-day retreat is a highly experiential once-in-a-life-time opportunity. You will not learn “how to” become your best self, you will practice being this.

COLLABORATION with VEDA STUDIO by LOURDES PEREZ:
For this trip we have as Mastermind partner the amazing Lourdes Pérez, the founder of Veda Studio (www.veda-studio.com). Lourdes' willingness to contribute to make this world a better place moved her from a successful international career in the corporate sector to the humanitarian sector. After studying and practising with the greatest Masters in India for more than six years in the arts of yoga, meditation and self-realization, she discovered the true essence of life. Today she combines her humanitarian management roles with her work as speaker and teacher, sharing all her knowledge of eastern wisdom and modern science in her retreats and seminars around the world. It is for us a great pleasure and honour to have Lourdes coming along as an expert guide to our Himalayan Mastermind trip!
The Mastermind sessions will take place two times daily (morning and evening) during our LANGTANG trek and will include various topics and practical exercises such as the power of your thoughts and emotions to shape your life; managing your energy; handling stress; quantum physics; unconditional self-love; overcoming limiting believes; healing meditations and Tibetan singning bowls concerts to name but a few!
HIMALAYAN MASTERMIND TREK'S EXTENSION OR ADD-ONS
If you have a few extra days in Kathmandu before or after your trek and would like to extend your trip, why not spend a day or more exploring the historic sites of Kathmandu, Bhaktapur or why not pay a visit to the UNESCO World Heritage Chitwan National Park. Likewise, it's also possible to extend your trek to link it with other treks in the same Langtang area like the Holy Gosaikunda trek or the Tamang Heritage Trail. If you look for a different experience, though, we can recommend the Everest Base Camp trek, the Gokyo Valley trek (both in the Everest region. Or, alternatively, the Annapurna Sanctuary trek or the Annapurna Circuit trek (in the Annapurna region). Have a look at the Trip Extensions tab or contact us if you need more details.
