Last summer I wrote about a trip to Spain that fed my spirit (and ego- a tad) and how important I think travel is as a means for instigating a state of presence. Click here to read the first installment of Spanish Holiday: Part of the Boys of Summer Series.
This summer I have been working on a book about Ayruveda, the yogic path for health and long life, incorporating Ayurvedic practices into my daily schedule while participating in Depak Chopra and Oprah’s 21 Day Meditation Challenge: Miraculous Relationships AND I checked off a bucket list item by traveling to Tibet. All of these activities have been feeding my spirit and helping me grow in the understanding of the abundance of love that surrounds me in my life. The better I learn to love myself, the better able I am to be compassionate towards, patient with and loving of everyone else. I am better able to love myself through the self-care techniques I am learning from Ayurveda and by calming my mind with yoga, mediation, pranayama (breathing exercises) and eating healthfully. The world is becoming an eternal summer of 1969 where I am finally emerging from the fear and anxiety that has prevented me from truly connecting with people for most of my life. Every person I come in contact with of late seems to be an opportunity to connect- even if it is just for a fleeting moment.
It is all very exciting.
I feel like I am finally ready- REALLY ready- to look for a lifelong love partner.
I promise to write about the Tibetan adventure in the coming months. It was an amazing journey of self discovery, surprising and stimulating on so many levels. I left Charlottesville alone and returned with seven new best friends, my new tribe.
But I wanted to share information about a dream trip to India hosted by my Guru, Valma Brenton as soon as possible. If you have ever wanted to go to India or just want to experience what I am talking about when I say traveling is like being in a constant state of mindfulness, you may want to explore this trip further. Valma is a remarkable woman, teacher and leader. Oh, and before I forget this trip is for women only (sorry guys- that is the way Valma rolls. She feels that some women simply feel safer in a group of women).
Here is the information about her trip to India:
Feel free to pass this along to everyone you know.
