I arrived after an easy journey to Cochin, Kerala. I so appreciate Anne’s Residency, quiet, beautiful gardens, air conditioning, and a soft bed. Oh so happy! A wonderful group of women are en route, and soon the empty chairs will be filled; the air punctuated by laughter, excitement, and awe.
After finishing three weeks of intensive practice and living in Goa, my needs have shifted to coolness, rest, Ayurvedic massages, and meditation.
Last night I treated myself to a nice restaurant after living sparsely in Goa. My bank card did not work there, so two meals a day and thankfully Mama Bhakti fed me lunch. My bank card works here.
I want to describe the magic that happens here in this way. My intention was to deepen my meditation practice and yes, after the meal, I met a woman who teaches right beside the restaurant. We made arrangements for me to come at 5 am this morning and I did a little yoga, then skillfully guided by Sitar and being fanned to keep heat and mosquitoes away, began to work with mantra and third-eye vision. Will be back for a second session at 4 pm.
Thank you, India.
