“A smile is in the same language”
We did done so much in our 9 days in Kolkata. Visiting the Hope childrens’ homes, hospital and lifeskills centre, where there is a wonderful shop and cafe, teaching craft, clothes making and restaurant skills.
We are also lucky to be here for Diwali, the festival of lights, which is akin to our Christmas in importance.We celebrated this in the home of our pranic healing teachers and their family.. such a privilege.. beautiful food ‘ fireworks and company!
Kali puja’ was happening too..worship to a blue goddess with 4 arms’ who killed her husband’ and went on to do great things..awesome!
A profound experience for me happened when I reluctantly attended mass in. Mother Teresa’s hospice. A place where men and women come for their last days. Those few who were well enough to sit were opposite us in the small chapel area. I caught the pained and sad gaze of one of the men opposite me, I smiled and amazingly he managed to give me a radiant smile back… for a few moments he gave me the deep privilege of feeling completely connected to him. The power of a smile is wonderful indeed.

A Passage to India!
I have always loved to travel, and I have visited over ten countries in almost as many years. Apart from the States on two occasions in recent times, these countries have been in Europe close to home. I have yearned to travel further afield. Earlier this year I visited a Psychic, and was delighted when she told me I would travel to India! I was even more delighted, when the very next day, the opportunity presented itself via a friend I had done my yoga teacher training with!

So here I am in the mid years of my life ready for adventure.

I leave Ireland for 6 weeks on Sunday to travel to India. Starting with 10 days volunteering with The Hope Foundation in Calcutta, then a week or so of Yoga in Goa, then on to Kerala… and then who knows? a couple of weeks in an Ashram and a visit to an Ayurvedic centre perhaps? The true traveller does not plan too much, for then he becomes a tourist!

I would love to have you on the journey with me. Enter you email below to join me!henna hands
