JAPAN 10 Day Tour
26th May – 3rd June 2018
I am very excited to be able to offer you this magical Tour to Japan. The Tour is crafted to allow you to experience every day, an explosion of ‘The Unique’. Our hosts in Japan have an uncanny ability to know what you need. Getting under the skin of a destination is something very few experience. We guarantee an exclusive selection of experiences unique to our Tour. Imagine being opened up to Reiki’s birth place at Mt Kurama and Miyajima, the ancient site of Shinto. As the secret training takes place in Danjo Garan, you too will have ancient secrets revealed to ‘you’.
We deliberately keep our party numbers limited. It will make you feel like an exclusive club, when the Hearts of the Group come together to share experiences that are never ordinary, seldom typical and always aim to excel even the highest expectations. My meditations are inner adventures, discoveries of your hidden self. Crystal Tones singing bowls provide the most incredible resonance to bring you Bliss and power up your Heart’s intelligence.
