Everest himalaya

Gain professional development through experience.

We would like to invite you on an adventure where the grace and beauty of the mountains will be poured into your soul. You will experience mindfulness and professional development unlike any other. You will enjoy the meditation and understand the cultural context of mindfulness.

A life changer is the most common response from others.

All proceeds helps educate kids in remote Nepal.

Who is this trip for:

This is NOT a tourist trip. It is professional development for helping professionals interested in deepening their practices and understanding, e.g. psychologists, social workers, teachers, coaches. Email us if you are unsure of your suitability.

You can claim CPD but the number of hours will be a personal decision.

The journey:

  • Will allow you to experience a mindful adventure as we walk each day in the Himalayan mountains. Your task is to put one foot in front of the other under the shadow of the highest peaks and in doing so you will experience challenge and psychological practice. 
  • You will participate in professional development that includes groups discussions, meditation centres, and mindfulness practice.
  • We show you the tallest mountains in the world up close, e.g. Mt Everest,
  • We show you UNESCO heritage sites in Kathmandu, including by staying in Boudha near the UNESCO Boudhanath Stupa — the greatest stupa in the world where Buddhism comes alive each day.
  • You stay in TiSe Guest House in Kathmandu and experience our rooftop gatherings overlooking Kathmandu.

Not for profit venture:

All profits will go to helping needy children in remote villages. So far we have:

    • Supported children who otherwise could not go to school
    • Provided education materials, books, pens, computers
    • Paid for teachers
    • Provided warm clothes to the children in remote villages

Your group trainer:

Dr Louise Hayes travels on each trip.

Louise has engaged in long term humanitarian in Nepal. She attends these trips as a volunteer. Her personal value is to help professionals be more open, aware and engaged and to help children in poverty.

Everest ‘Ama’ — The Mother Mountain

  • Beautiful views of Mount Everest and many of the world’s highest peaks. We walk to ‘Ama Dablam’ base camp at 4800 metres, where you will take in a silent basin of hanging glaciers, glacial moraine, and the beautiful peak of Ama Dablam. Ama means mother, and this mountain is a beautiful symbol of mother and child, nestled near Everest. From our spectacular vantage point we gain a breathtaking 360 degree mountain panorama that culminates in the distinctive summit of Everest looming above the Nuptse-Lhotse wall.

  • Mindfulness from the inside out, in the peace of the mountains, a way to learn what mindfulness is and how to practice as you learn to care for yourself and care for each other.
