I recently joined Jim Hagan and Wisdom Tours on a trip to Eastern Tibet. Jim’s leadership, expertise in Tibetan Buddhist culture, philosophy, and psychology, as well as his passion for Tibetan art was a hallmark of this tour and I want to highly recommend it to anyone wanting to explore Tibetan Buddhism, and Tibet in particular. Jim finds extraordinary places to explore, which truly present the culture and the richness of Tibetan Buddhist philosophy and art. The monasteries we visited, and other experiences such as visiting a Tibetan orphanage, attending Tibetan horse races, being exposed to local Tibetan villages and pilgrimage sites were all unforgettable. Having the opportunity to receive teachings and meditating in these sacred places was something that impacted me immensely. Jim’s organization and his experience in living and traveling in Asia, allowed for a sense of security, comfort, and ease, as one navigated a very different culture, in a rather exotic part of the world. I would recommend this trip to everyone eager to learn about this fascinating and deeply spiritual culture.
