Some say Tibetans are the most religious people on earth. Certainly their spirituality dominates their culture. You cannot visit Tibet and return the same person. It is not for the faint of heart. A Journey to the Gateway to Heaven on Earth will change your life forever.

Join Maureen for this amazing sacred journey to Tibet.

Maureen’s mission is to provide opportunities for individuals to travel and experience their history alongside their future in the present. You will be with many kindred spirits, everyday men and women who demonstrate a keen desire for their own spiritual mastery. This will be a very special journey.

We will be arriving along with the spring season. We can expect sunny skies most of the time. Although daytime temperatures may be as warm as 80-85 degrees Fahrenheit, the nights could be very, very cold.

TEI is pleased to work with the foremost American guide in Tibet, Mr. Gary Wintz. He and his former partner were the first westerners to live in Tibet after Communist rule. He has worked with such luminaries as Gregg Braden and escorted thousands of tours since 1985. With his intimate knowledge of Tibet and Tibetan culture, Gary has lectured at many universities, including Harvard and Yale, and at organizations such as the National Geographic Society. Gary is the International Guide used by both Gregg Braden and Power Places Tours. Gary will guide your Tibetan Journey with Maureen.

Join TEI for a phenomenal journey to the Gateway to Heaven on Earth.

Although this will be a fun journey, all Sacred Journeys with Transformational Enterprises, Inc. should be considered pilgrimages and contain many opportunities to grow, not only in your personal knowledge, but your spiritual experience as well. This trip will be challenging due to the extreme weather conditions we may encounter at high altitude. Many make this trip by preparing physically as well as mentally and spiritually.

Video from the Tibet Sacred Journey in 2007

Maureen inside Sakya Monastery, Tibet

The outside is surrounded by hundreds of prayer wheels that are turned daily by monks and visitors alike. Near to Shigatse, the first monastery of one of the major traditions of Tibetan Buddhism was built in 1034.

Sakya is the former seat of Tibetan Government. A very special place, the Sakya tradition developed during the second period of translation of the buddhist scripture from Sanskrit into Tibetan in the late 11th century.

The following scenes are our visit to the Duprang Monastery, then a beautiful view from the roof of the Duprang Monastery, the room full of Colorful Thankas – Tibetan Prayer Flags, and a close-up view of a shrine called the Sacred Mountain, and finally a scenic stop as we drive over the final pass leaving Tibet.
