Leaving India!

I know you wondered if these blogs on India would ever end.

Well, our trip, this great adventure comes to an end after visiting the Taj Mahal. It is heart wrenching to say goodbye to India and to leave the group. For two weeks, we have been a solid group, supporting each other from one incredible experience to another, supporting each other throughout the intensity that is India.  We have grown together.

It was especially hard to part with Carla who stayed behind in Varanasi to study yoga with yogini  Smriti,  as the rest of us took off to see the Taj Mahal.  Hers was the first goodbye. Then it was hard to part with those who stayed on one or two extra days in Agra as half of us headed to the airport for our US return.  It was hardest to say goodbye to Halina, Karin, Julia, and Arvind. They don’t  live in Seattle which means I won’t be able to see them regularly.  The power of community is so strong!  We came to India as seekers, students of life, individuals exploring a fascinating place, India.  We left a garland of marigolds, forever connected by the golden thread of love.

      I miss all of you too! My mind is still with the group. I hope all of you are making a good recovery from jet lag. I know Carla and Sarah aren’t home yet but wish them a good flight back.

      I am missing the daily yoga too!

      with love,

    It was a privilege to take this journey, both the literal one and the figurative one, with this group. A friend of mine told me that no one who goes to India comes back unchanged and he was so right. With all of your support and your openness, the trip was truly transformational.

    And I too, as night-owlish as I am, really miss 7am yoga!

    Love and namaste.
