Trip at a glance

Join us for a meditative seven-day experience of this naturally gentle country that sits in the heart of Southeast Asia. Led by meditation master and facilitator Michelle, we will be guided on a journey to mindfulness while we take in the best of Northern Laos. The slow pace and laidback charm of Laos welcomes us in Luang Prabang, a UNESCO World Heritage City, nestled between the Nam Khan and Mekong Rivers. Here we are offered a special mix of gleaming gold temples, colonial French architecture, traditional disposition and pockets of pristine nature. Take in the best of this quaint city’s history and culture before we move on to explore the surrounding natural beauty at Kamu Lodge, a private eco wilderness retreat accessible only by boat. We will trek to the cool pools of a waterfall, meditate in the sanctity of a local temple, take in the thousand Buddha states of Pak Ou caves and visit social and environmental initiatives. With an emphasis on low-impact travel, this trip supports the efforts of the Lao Friends Hospital For Children and their Outpatient Pharmacy which provides diagnoses and medication to rural children in the Luang Prabang area.

Laos is very much a developing country and local children still commonly die of diseases that have been eradicated in other parts of the world. Many preventable and treatable disease such as pneumonia and diarrhea have deadly results in Laos, meaning that access to quality health care and education about disease prevention practices can have a huge positive impact on local communities.

 

With the special mission of helping the rural children of Laos, the giving people at Lao Friends Hospital for Children (LFHC) believe that every child has the right to a healthy and loving life. The LFHC provide consistently high-quality and compassionate medical care. Creating and running community health education programs to train to local healthcare professionals. They apply a triple-pronged strategy of treatment, education and prevention in running their emergency, inpatient and outpatient services for children from the local communities.

Your donation will support a full day of the program, providing medicine and treatment to between 40 and 50 rural children a day.

 

As always, by participating in responsible tourism that respects and honors the people and places you visit, you are helping to support the local communities in maintaining their way of life.

    Belinda from Soulful Concepts ensured I had a lasting impression of Laos, having lived their she knew we needed to be amongst the people to get a better understanding of their culture and land. Being up at dawn to see the Monks brighten the streets of Luang Prabang with their magnificent orange robes, watching farmers with their water buffalo through the rice paddies, visiting ornate temples, staying at remote villages along the Mekong River and mixing with the village people along the way to see the children who loved our presence and interaction, viewing the specatular waterfalls, the majestic elephants, attending cooking classes to get a better understanding of the cuisine opened our minds and hearts to an amazing country. Thank you Belinda.
