Welcome to the Dharma Yatra website
Sorry the 2013 walking pilgrimage (yatra) in the beautiful French countryside is now full.
If you desperately wanted to come, you can send an email and be added on the waiting list. We’ll contact you if we have cancellations, but there is no guarantee…
We have friends organising “Other Events” in the same spirit before and after the Yatra, you can follow the links and change your plans.
And may be see you next year !
We are preparing for the 13th annual French Yatra. A Yatra is a pilgrimage. Men, women and children have gone on walking pilgrimages for thousands of years.
It will start on Wednesday afternoon of July 24, 2013, and end by noon on Saturday August 3, 2013.
This year the Yatra will be held in the Dordogne region of France. The start and finish location will be near the town of Thiviers. Thiviers has a train station on the rail line between Limoges and Perigueux. The nearest airports are Limoges and Bergerac. While Bordeaux has more flights it is about 200km away.
Teachers: Christopher Titmuss, Zohar Lavie, Denis Robberechts, Kevin Dancelme and Nanda Huneman.
As in 2012, in 2013 we have a maximum capacity of 130 people.
Our Yatra is run entirely on donations (dana), to cover all the running costs, along with donations for teachers and managers.
Parents are welcome with their children but the life style during the Yatra can be hardship. Please read the specific paragraphs before registering.
Do join. It is a wonderful event.
