Richard Masla: The Himalayan Tour takes us to the top of the world as we travel up to the Himalayan landscape visiting sacred places dear to many spiritual traditions. This tour will be dedicated to your personal healing and inner exploration. In early spring 2012 I researched to find a Ayurvedic Center in India where I could support my health by doing Ayurvedic Panchakarma treatments. I ended up spending 7 days with Dr Mahesh and his wife, Dr Shivani in Dharamsala at their clinic. I was impressed by their knowledge and guidance during my stay.
I have been an Ayurvedic Practitioner for over 16 years and am a firm believer of the importance of preventative medicine in supporting good health. Ayurvedic Panchakarma is beneficial to your overall mental and physical well being and longevity of life. Whether you are in excellent health or have a chronic or acute illness the rejuvenative and detoxing Ayurvedic treatments will add years to your life and life to your years.
We will have our Ayurvedic meals at the clinic, stay in a simple clean hotel nearby and have plenty of time after treatments to rest, read, journal and explore the sacred Himalayas that will surround us.
This tour is for persons that want to heal deeply through Ayurveda. If you have digestive disorders, arthritis or other chronic health disorders this is the trip for you. Under the care of Dr Mahesh and Dr Shivani we will follow Ayurveda procedures for detoxing and rejuvenation.

Dalai Lama- “I believe that Tibetan society is an example of a peaceful and compassionate culture; that’s why it is worth preserving, and I am pleased to see that in its work to keep Tibetan culture alive, the Norbulingka Institute is actively contributing to that task”.
The Tibetan settlement of Dharamshala began in 1959, when His Holiness the Dalai Lama had to flee Tibet. The Dalai Lama’s Monastery is in Dharamsala it is the real heart of Tibet’s exiled community offering travelers a unique opportunity to experience the vibrant Tibetan culture firsthand without the persecution and difficulties of the Chinese presence.
