I am back, And hey I did not die people. But yes had been through hell. And being a veteran loved it. I left Army some 11 years back, and then got my post grad from the best business school in the country. Then on been a banker, not very exciting (nothing can be as exciting as the Army) but yea you got to get bread on the table! may be a little cake and pastries etc. too if you know what I mean. My art, my journey through the labyrinths of the mind, was somehow on those heavy chains, which drag and make those sounds, those ominous sounds.
But hey it was time to reinvent. Routine is boring. 11 years of routine, I mean why did I even thought I could live like that. That was not me Man I must say its past ! I chucked it. Started on my own. A new beginning. I feel like a flower in fresh bloom now. Doing what I always wanted to do .
I Started a company and we design experiences. Wild ones. Dreamy ones. And now spiritual ones too.
We also did design some Bush craft stuff and some really tough wilderness survival trainings in the toughest of terrains, and then I remembered of this really forgotten place I had in the foothills of the Himalayas. With pristine white sand beach of its own on the banks of the river Ganges.
Turned it in to beautiful campsite for retreats and what the hell, threw open a Yoga retreat . It was amazing. The whole experience.
How do you quantify and explain in words when physical wellness come and sit down with the spirituality and then stare you in the face.
When breathing is therapy and the mind is one with the body.
We had these wonderful Anviksiki sessions, combined with meditation and Yin Yog in the evening on the white beach which went on till late in the most beautiful moonlit evening.
Jammed till late at night post dinner with flutes and claps and around the fire.
I had the most wonderful of instructors on my retreat , and they were such beautiful souls too.
That’s my son with his friends, he is responsible for designing the activities , apart from making movies and drone coverage of the event.
I must say I am hooked , so people this is very much a part of me now. I will throw many more retreats open. And in a lot of beautiful locations. Maybe a few yoga studios with Art and Yog as theme. Internationally.
Bless me people.
And do tell if what I need to do more to make it exciting.
