Authentic Retreat

 David Ederer (@David-Ederer)4 years, 9 months ago

You know how in the beggining of Batman Begins, Christian Bale/Bruce Wayne goes up to the league of shadows “dojo” on top of a mountain somewhere in Tibetan Himalayas or of such?  There’s been tons of examples in pop culture or old tales of a wanderer seeking enlightenment or training by going to such a place and setting.

I’m curious if anyone has had a similar experience through traveling and coming across a place of worship/retreat/knowledge or what have you that is close to what I’ve stated above.  Obviously I’m not talking about a place like in Batman Begins, but more so a monestary, buddhist temple or retreat center that isn’t bombarded with tourists or Westerners mimicking the traditions of ancient Eastern culture and practices – or wherever it is geographically.  If not, does anyone know of anything that may come close?  I’m looking for an authentic retreat for spiritual growth and experience, or something close.
