Schedule of Events

Learning
& Connecting

Learning and Connection are at the heart of a Mastermind Adventures experience.

Learning experiences are structured for maximum benefit (with scheduled talks, forums and workshops with your peers).

Connection with your fellow entrepreneurs happens organically - through adventure, downtime, and deep conversations.


LEARNING COMPONENTS OF AN MMA EXPERIENCE:

Small-group forums: You’ll be placed in a small forum with 7 of your fellow entrepreneurs. Over the course of the forum sessions, you’ll have the opportunity to share and get feedback on some of your biggest life and business challenges (and provide feedback to others).

Workshops: Workshops are peer-delivered and cover a variety of topics including lifestyle design, marketing, finance, relationships and family life, and much more. They are designed for immediate insights and takeaways.

Evening Talks: After dinner, TED-style, informal fireside chats offer you an opportunity to go deeper on various life and business topics.

THE LODGES

Zhiwa Ling Heritage and Naksel

 

On MMA Bhutan we will be staying at two spectacular, award-winning lodges: the Zhiwa Ling Ascent outside of Thimpu and the Zhiwa Ling Heritage near Paro.

The Ascent is a beautiful 4-star resort that we have booked out entirely for ourselves, while the Heritage is a stunning 5-star lodge on a beautiful piece of property overlooking the Paro valley, with views of Jumolhari (Bhutan’s highest peak at 7,300 m) and the famed Tiger’s Nest Monastery.

Zhiwa Ling Ascent

Zhiwa Ling Ascent


Nestled in the hills outside Paro, Zhiwa Ling Heritage is an architectural gem that unites Bhutanese culture and heritage with 21st-century comforts. Its main lodge and cottages—each hand-decorated with intricate carvings—are set in a lush landscape of weeping willows and fruit trees. This is the first five-star Bhutanese-owned hotel, and its beautifully appointed suites look out over the emerald foothills of the Himalaya.

In the spirit of Bhutan’s Buddhist tradition, guests can join monks at the Meditation House, soak up the tranquility of the Tea House, and enjoy a unique selection of spa treatments imbued with spiritual symbolism.

The town of Paro and its magnificent dzong (or fortress) are a short distance from here, and the iconic cliff-hanging Tiger’s Nest monastery is within view. A variety of nearby hiking trails lead to age-old monasteries and typical villages.

Zhiwa Ling is a work of art, painstakingly constructed, carved, and painted by Bhutanese artisans over five years. It is not an old hotel—it first opened its doors in 2005 and is equipped with all the modern amenities you’d expect—yet the stunning architecture conveys an atmosphere of timeless tradition that fits right into Bhutan’s cultural landscape. The hotel’s temple exemplifies this emphasis on the authentic: it was built using 450-year-old wood from the original Gangtey Goemba monastery, one of Bhutan’s most cherished sites.
