The Right Livelihood & GNH Program

A 7-day learning journey in Bhutan

13-19th October, 2023

USD $3990*

About the Program:

Join us for an exciting 7-day learning journey in Bhutan with the GNH Centre from 13-19th October, 2023. You will have the opportunity to experience first-hand the beauty, vibrant culture and pristine natural environment of Bhutan and learn about the application of Gross National Happiness at personal, organizational, and national levels. Come and explore the relationship between our personal journey of inner transformation and the wider social change we would like to bring into the world.

Our explorations will take us to Thimphu, Punakha, and Paro, and will include meeting with local GNH experts and youth, staying in a charming rural heritage home to experience Bhutanese family life, pristine nature hikes, guided meditations and conversations with Bhutanese spiritual teachers, and a pilgrimage to the sacred Tiger's Nest monastery.

* Program fee includes: Interactive sessions on GNH and wellbeing with facilitators and guest speakers, shared accommodation, meals, local transport, including airport transfers, Bhutan visa and $200 SDF (Sustainable Development Fee). Single room supplement available. Does not include flights to/from Bhutan.

Program Themes:

How can the vision and values of GNH translate into individual and collective action that promotes the well-being of all life? And how can we cultivate the inner qualities or “happiness skills” that ancient wisdom traditions (and now scientific research) indicate can be enhanced through regular practice?

  • Exploring Gross National Happiness in Bhutan and its applications at a personal, organizational and national level
  • Meeting with local Bhutanese experts, staying in a local farmstay, visiting inspiring projects, people and sacred spaces, connecting with places of highest potential.
  • From inner transformation to social change: Transforming the “poisons of the mind”, generating Loving Kindness, Compassion, Joy and Equanimity as a basis for a healthy inner life and social organisation.
  • Cultivating personal and collective happiness skills: mindfulness and compassion; deep listening
  • Connecting to source through solo time in nature, including Mountain pilgrimage to explore how to manifest your Right Livelihood
  • Case clinics – deepening peer to peer support in addressing emerging opportunities and challenges as participants develop their Right Livelihood plans, projects or prototypes
  • Sharing, celebrating and supporting each other as our aspirations begin to take root and take shape in the outer world.
