HIDDEN TREASURES OF BHUTAN – FALL 2017
DRUK YUL ~ The Land of the Fire Dragon
Let me introduce you to a country that has captured my heart a long time ago ~ lifetimes ago. Bhutan is nestled in the Himalayas between the two giants, China and India, and is also often described as a jewel in the Himalayas. It is roughly the size of Switzerland, with altitudes starting at 150m and rising to its tallest mountain at over 7000m. It is home to the snow leopard and the musk deer, as well as many other species, and even tigers have been seen at 4000 meters.
While most countries assess their wealth by measuring the Gross National Product (the total value of all financial goods and services), Bhutan instead counts its wealth by measuring Gross National Happiness. GNH means the creation of an enlightened society in which the happiness and well-being of all people and sentient beings is the ultimate purpose of governance, including a sustainable environment. Bhutan’s social and cultural fabrics are woven closely with the spiritual traditions. The majority of the population are either Buddhist or Hindu. Animist tradition has subtly influenced these two faiths. Spiritual activities are a day-to-day living culture in this kingdom. This expression dots the kingdom in the form of monuments and prayer flags.
The small country of Bhutan is undergoing a rapid transformation. Since 2008, the world’s youngest democracy continues to be guided by the vision of Gross National Happiness. Founded by the wise lineage of kings and spiritual compassionate leaders, honoring all living forms.

In fact, if you add together all the time she has spent there it would equal over 2 years of her life (not including past lives).
