Ales’ Article | Our Upcoming Trips at a Glance

Dear Friends,

WHAT’S NEW? Thrive! What on Earth Will it Take?


THRIVE is an unconventional documentary that states it’s goal is to: “Lift the veil on what’s REALLY going on in our world by following the money upstream – uncovering the global consolidation of power in nearly every aspect of our lives.

Weaving together breakthroughs in science, consciousness and activism, THRIVE offers real solutions, empowering us with unprecedented and bold strategies for reclaiming our lives and our future.”

It’s worth visiting the website and exploring the ideas for yourself. Radical, yes – true, who knows – but the concepts will get you thinking for sure!

Blessings and love, Sheri Rosenthal

Dharamsala, India: The Dalai Lama & Tibetan Buddhism in Exile
June 5-21st, 2012

On this special journey of the heart, Tibetan Lama Buga and Lisa Tully will be leading our group to McLeod Ganj, India to attend public teachings by His Holiness the 14th Dalai Lama, and to learn Buddhist meditation from teachers of his lineage.

Attending the public teachings by His Holiness will afford you the opportunity to experience the immense power of this man’s heart. He refers to himself as “a simple monk” but rest assured this is an incredible, albeit typically Tibetan, understatement.

Following our time with the Dalai Lama is a 10 day silent retreat run by the internationally renowned Tushita Meditation Centre. Nestled high up in the forests far away from any hustle and bustle, this welcoming haven is perfect for those who want to get away and explore their true nature.

This is a serious retreat that will provide the tools needed to begin or enhance a daily meditation practice and to learn more about Tibetan Buddhism.

Trip cost: £1750 or approximately $2750.00 USD per person, dormitory style occupancy, many meals included.

Details for Dharamsala here!

Mesa Stila – Your top destination spa & wellness resort in Central Java

Mesa Stila Retreat Center

I‘m always on the lookout for some of the most tranquil and pristine resorts around the world, places where you can escape completely, rejuvenating your mind, body and soul. Recently I found an amazing resort that definitely will be top on my list – Mesa Stila Spa & Wellness Resort.

With Indonesia’s long and deeply rooted spiritual history and some of the most breathtaking landscape on our planet, it is perfectly located in serene Central Java. Set in the middle of a 55-acre coffee plantation and surrounded by eight magnificent volcanoes, it was recently transformed from a charming estate (dating back to 1922) to a beautiful renovated wellness retreat.

The estate is dotted with 22 romantic Javanese guest villas of which each has an unmistakable colonial feel. During your stay you’ll be treated to some of the best meals Java has to offer. At the Mesa Stila the cuisine concept is focused on Javanese-fusion food with a healthy twist – using local and organic produce, healthy cooking techniques, nutritiously dense foods, masses of fresh fruits and vegetables, local and regional carbohydrate staples, fish, some seafood and a limited use of meat.

Mesa Stila Spa

There’s much to do here and your days will be carefully planned to give you the most beneficial experience for your mind, body and soul. Yoga in the mornings is a highlight and wellness retreats include, fitness, de-stress, cleansing and so much more.

If you feel up to something a little more adventurous; there are mountain-biking trails leading to hot springs, you can also work out in the resort’s Jungle Gym or hike to the top of one of the surrounding volcanoes.

After a day of adventure and discovery allow your body to be pampered in the resort’s spa, which has its own Turkish hammam and make sure to try one of the mocktails made of local watermelon, pear and carrot juices. Delish!

There are numerous retreats for you to choose from, ranging from a simple “Escape the daily routine” package to “Fitness and Weight Management” retreats. Your stay at the Mesa Stila can be as short or as long as you would like it to be and can also be combined with a visit to the world’s largest Buddhist monument – the Borobudur Temple in Java. Bali is the neighboring island of Java and just a short flight or exciting over-land trip away.

Options to make this a truly amazing journey abound and I would be more than happy to create an unforgettable itinerary to this magical islands. Are you ready for a truly unique mind-body-spirit adventure? Contact me today with any questions you may have and allow me to design the perfect experience for you!

May all your travels stir your soul and change your life forever – Ales.
