Wisdom Health Retreat

28.06 / 03.07 2024


Under the guidance of Tibetan lama and scholar Khenpo Samdup Rinpoche, we host The Compassionate Leadership retreat designed to introduce participants into the theory and practice of Tibetan Buddhism as a powerful tool to radically shift our perspective and deepen our toolkit to become the aware and compassionate leaders the world so urgently needs. This immersive retreat provides in-depth training for leaders, using a powerful framework for advanced self-awareness and compassionate decision-making based on the millenary wisdom and practice of Shamata, Vipassana and Mahamudra.

This transformative retreat is co-crafted in collaboration with Álvaro Guirao López, the visionary founder & CEO of Optimal XR AG and Wisdom Health.
