Why “dreams”? In dreams, we exist and do not exist at the same time. And just like a dreaming person, Baikal is a unique point in space and time. It is unique because it seems that time does not exist there. It is a space between spaces and a time beyond time.

Why “about something bigger”? Because there you can find answers to your personal questions. There you can hear the Infinity. The consciousness leaves everyday reality limits. We are left alone with the Universe.

This is a meditative journey. Are we going to make practices? Yes, and no. Each day of conscious living will be our practice. Sense of ourselves, motives of our actions, and observation of unfolding space around us. There will be small practices, but it is not so important. The most important part learning how to stop the flow of thoughts and finding an internal silence.

The purpose of this journey is to move our consciousness from the process of reflection to true feelings and self-consciousness. We have a lot of ways of perceiving this reality, but we have almost no chance of activating these ways in the big city. For that reason, we are going on our amazing journey.

We will get close to the secrets of various religious traditions and will be able to feel them from the inside, to accept the unity, the differences and shades. To feel our inner spirit, our personal experience. We will visit an amazing little temple on Olkhon Island, which is very bright and quiet, but has a very strong energy. We will meet with a real shaman and find out the mystery of this beautiful religion. We will see with our own eyes ancient petroglyphs, which are thousands years old! And over the Bolshoye More ice (Large Sea) of lake Baikal we will have a trip to the Buddhist center of Buryatia, Ivolginsky Datsan, where the body of Hambo-Lama Itigelov lies. Lama bequeathed to see his body in 75 years after the burial, which was done in 2002 year. Examination showed that the studied materials have the characteristics that are similar to a living person and Lama is in a state that science can’t explain.

And of course we will see a stunning beauty of lake Baikal! You can admire its beauty on photos and in movies, but you should at least once in your life see this incomparable miracle for yourself!

Travel together with Katerina Smirnova – the founder of the "Magic Women's Banya (sauna)" project, a practician of a special approach of human healing: body/ consciousness/ soul, researcher and traveler, the guide to sacred journeys for finding an inner strength (Altai, Baikal, Karelia and other amazing places of our planet).

We will be accompanied by experienced drivers, guides, captains, masters of their job.

Day 8 (March 17, Saturday)

A visit to the Ivolginsky datsan.

In translation from Buryat language “Ivolginsky datsan” means "monastery, where The wheel of Learning rotates, full of joy and happiness". Those who visit the datsan say that these are the feelings you feel - happiness and joy.

The main miracle of this datsan is Lama Dasha Dorzho Itigelov who predicted a revolution and popularity of atheism. He was born in 1852, and in 1927 voluntarily fell into Nirvana. He has written books on Buddhist philosophy (more than 50), wrote a fundamental work in Tibetan pharmacology "Jor" left a spiritual guidance to his people, followers and descendants. Also, Buryat scholars found a book written by Lama in allegorical manner in old Mongolian language with Tibetan and Sanskrit parts. In several years they managed to decrypt a small part of the message, and a full transcript promises to open many mysteries that were foretold by the holy man.

In 1927 Lama Itigelov voluntarily fallen into Nirvana. Being a very old man, he sat in Lotus pose posture and left his body, telling his disciples to bury him, but take him out the grave after 75 years. The disciples did as he asked and now, after so many years after "death", Lama Itigelov still sits in lotus pose in the main doogane (temple) of Ivolginsk datsan.

Also, in the Ivolginsky Datsan you can see the magic stone. It has an inscription: "According to the legend, this stone was touched by Nogoon Dari Ehe (Green Tara) who left an imprint of her hand. The back side of the stone was processed by the Masters of Ivolginsky datsan and in August of the year 2007 the gem was installed on the territory of datsan. Above it, in gugurva, there is a statue of Green Tara.

You can make a wish, while walking around the precious stone and touching it.

We can’t know for sure if we can get an access to the Hambo-Lama or not, but we will do our best, adhering temple customs and rules. The powers of heaven and the purity of our intentions is everything we can count on.
