Good morning

Varanasi 28th March

Good morning all. It’s getting ever hotter here and thank
goodness for fans and air conditioning! Hoping you’re all well.

Apologies for not being in touch with blogs for a while.
There’s been so much going on and there is so much to tell. I’m now finally in
Varanasi, a place that’s called to my soul for several years…probably

I flew in yesterday from Dehli Airport – you’ve truly never
seen anything like it. I gasped at ...

Jaipur 14th March

Good morning from the capital of Rajastan.

In these last few weeks I have been struggling with lower backache.
I simply bend over and lifted – unwisely, a bucket filled with washing and

Pain is a funny thing and the worse it has become, then it
has meant I have had to rest and just BE. The root chakra indeed needs to be
re-established and re-connected, even re-rooted?

Many of you know that I love to ...

Jodhpur 8TH March

Well, sorry there has been an absence of blogs for the last
few days.

Pushkar proved to be everything and more than I had initially
expected. Both my heart and soul were on fire for 48 hours leading up to our arrival.
I had NO idea why. It certainly wasn’t just because Mumbai was so busy and
crazy, noisy and smelly! Neither was it that I knew there was a beautiful   Sacred
Lake which was truly sacred indeed. ...

The Healing Of India

The learnings here have been and are many! An interesting fact
is that we need to buy bottled water daily, which is very humbling in itself. Many
of you know my feelings on recycling and plastic bottles!

It’s the difference between survival and the possibility of
serious illness here. We simply cannot drink the tap water. Watching the locals
pull water from their wells in their homes – albeit Shanti towns, is true
testimony that we need to respect our ...

Healing Of India


Well, another day in paradise. The experiences here have
been both plentiful and enjoyable on the whole. Duncan has been a great teacher
and has given me the confidence to go out alone, cope with haggling and bartering
and SO much more. I have tried a huge variety of different foods and we have
visited many weird and wonderful places too. The beaches here are so lovely
although I’m aware that there is so much more ...

Another day in paradise. SO, we have been here almost a
fortnight here now. What have I earned? What have I experienced? How has India
changed me? If at all. Would I rather be anywhere else? Was it what I had
expected? What do I love about India? Do I have any regrets?

The weeks leading up to coming here I was too exhausted and
otherwise too busy to think about India. My last day in the UK was spent with ...

Healing Of India

Healing Of India 7th Feb

One of the major changes in me that India has brought about
is that I have found is that it is ALL very humbling.

I feel a complete sense of deep peace here and a deep
connection to EVERYTHING-especially nature. We are staying in an eco-farm where
the owner grows bananas, pineapples, coconut, herbs and other foods. NO
pesticides, nor insecticides are ever used.

When we arrived here there was a monkey on the roof and as
we ...

Healing Of India 4

I do hope that you’re enjoying
these blogs, maybe some of you are finding my sense of humour a little weird!
Poor Duncan’s not much choice!

We arrived in India a
few days ago and I’m using the blog to share my story, well our story.

Here’s a copy of the
text I sent to my loved ones back home. “Just been out on the moped, a
wonderful feeling with the wind in our faces and a mouthful ...

So, upon
arrival we were greeted by the owner who was rather lovely and treated us to
some savoury rice and a cuppa. We were completely cabbaged. We had agreed that
we would rest for a few hours to hopefully adjust to Indian time and get over
the jet lag.

hours later Duncan was still shattered, so I walked down to the local bridge
over the river. I felt both comfortable and safe. To be honest I ...

Good afternoon

Thank you for the lovely comments yesterday as so many of
you seemed to enjoy the blog I wrote.

My dear friend Phill asked was India what I expected. To be
honest with the stress of selling my house, sorting out change of address,
seeing friends and family; not to mention being absolutely exhausted on all
levels – mentally, physically, spiritually and emotionally, I truly wasn’t
expecting anything. I was too busy keeping my eyes open and breathing!

Duncan ...
