Each year Dr. Miles Neale curates a tour that attracts very earnest and like-minded participants to embark on a journey of inner and outer discovery capable of changing lives. 

The pilgrimage starts before we physically embark with preparatory readings, classes, and an orientation meeting so you get the most out of your experience once you arrive. Multidisciplinary in nature, the daily routine of pilgrimage includes site visits, guided meditations, group rituals, teachings, service, and embodied practices along with a host of cultural, leisurely, and spontaneous activities. Dr. Neale invites in wisdom keepers and expert guest teachers to provide direct access to the local traditions and cultures. Equally important, we only partner with leading licensed tour operators and guides as well as organize stays at stunning heritage hotels and authentic monasteries to provide a safe, ethical, and seamless expedition. Upon return expect a reorientation debrief and follow-up activities ensuring the continuity of your practice and emotional bonds with others endure for lifetimes.
