Welcome to the Dharma Yatra website
On this site you will find all you need to know about the Dharma Yatra; a walking meditative "pilgrimage" through the beautiful French countryside.
A Yatra is a pilgrimage. Men, women and children have gone on walking pilgrimages for thousands of years. The Yatra operates without a fixed cost for participants, but rather in the spirit of sharing costs amongst all participants and with the invitation to make a donation to teachers and managers.
The only fixed fee we ask for is the registration fee that, much like a deposit, confirms your presence and assists us with some of the pre-event bills.
We hope you will choose to join a Dharma Yatra, it is a wonderful event.
The next French Dharma Yatra is planned for 2021.
Dear Yatra Sangha,
It is with a great sadness and a heavy heart that we’ve decided to cancel this year’s Yatra.
Although the Yatra was planned for the end of July, there are many things that need to be done in advance (ordering of food, finding trails and campsites, permissions from local authorities, and many more). This groundwork is usually done throughout March, April, May, June etc.
How it is now, we simply can’t prepare for the Yatra in the way that we feel would make it fun, safe and enjoyable for all.
I know for many of you this will come with a lot of sadness.
We thought to have one big virtual Yatra sangha party, including sharings, a dance etc, open to everyone who was planning to come, or has been on a Yatra previously. Please stay tuned for more information.
Denis, Kiet, Nathan and Zohar are offering online sessions, retreats and programs as well as recorded talks and guided meditations as a support to all of us living through these times. If you’re interested, see links below.
May everyone in the Sangha and beyond be well cared for. We hope to see you again soon.
The 2021 Yatra team!
Missing the Yatra Sangha? Especially after knowing we won't meet this summer?
Well then come to an online gathering on the 24th May at 16:00 (UTC), thats 17:00 in UK, and 18:00 in France!
We'll have a guided meditation by some of the teachers, and then we'll break into little groups to share how we are!
It won't be walking in silence in the beautiful French countryside unfortunately, but it'll be nice to see everyone, even virtually.
Who knows, we might even do a little dance together too, from our rooms!
To join, its simple - go to this page to register (only requires name + email).
This will automatically send you a Zoom link to join on the 24th of May.
