I have surfaced here in Mcleodganj-Dharamsala after 2 survival days in Delhi and an night train/epic taxi ride up into the mountains.
I feel like Ive lived 100 days in the past week. 25 hours of flying and a complete reversal of day and night, can really mess you up!
Where do I begin with the story telling?
I will start with the current situation. 1st full day of yoga course, up at 5:30 for a cowgirl shower, and morning pages (journalling)... meditation class starts at 6:30 sharp! Chanting , and silence for 1 hr, then 2 hours of asana (what we call yoga), then break for breakfst. After, 2 hour philosopy, then meditation academics, then more asana... finish at 6:30 (with a break for lunch in there too).
all this in a setting of rugged Himalayan foothills, steep green valleys dotted with temples and prayer flags. The town in a mosaic of Tibetans (monks, nuns and townspeople, Indians, and a lot of tourists!... some of whom are also monks and nuns.)
I have to get going as the internet shop is closing... will return soon!
Health is good, hope also with you!

You sound great Amber
Hi Amber. Your Mom gave me this address so I could catch what you were 'up to'. Your trip sounds so fabulous. You are a very brave woman. The days sound very long and very full. WOW. Keep healthy. I am just so happy for you. What an adventure.
Take good care.
Namaste
