In my heart I felt a deep urge of sharing these lines with you. They came recently to my mind like a sunbeam suddenly hitting the surface of a mirror. Sending the reflection of the light in various direction. This light reached a place inside of me where I expected void. I did not find void but a clear message saying:
Again through WorkAway I was lucky to find the TOTAL ART OASIS. A place that takes your breath away. Directly by entering the grounds you feel that this is not a normal camping or seminar ground. The source of the Moselle (deutsch: Mosel) with a lengths of 544km is the second biggest tributary of the Rhine which is flowing over the grounds of the TAO. The Col de Bussang is the home of the source on approx. 900m above sea level.
Kærlighed. Now you wonder what this funny looking word means. After I joined several Yoga Classes at the Anahata Yoga Retreat Center I wondered what Kærlighed is. They were mentioning it over and over again. It must be something very important worth mentioning very often. And what could not be mentioned enough? This word means Love in Danish. And all made sense.
Childhood dreams are there to be fulfilled one day. One of my big dreams came true. Work on a farm and live in a community. At least for 6 weeks. How does a day on a farm look like? Before I answer this question it might be important to mention that Bhumis Farm in the southern part of Sweden is not a normal farm. It is a farm with spiritual roots in the ancient Indian Vedic teachings.
On my day of arrival in Sri Lanka I felt that this country is completely different to India.
Coming down from a place located over 4.000m above sea level in the middle of the Himalayas was not easy. The elevation itself but also the ethereal atmosphere was not the same. We stayed one night in Rishikesh on our way to Vrindavan. A lively city famous for being a city of pilgrimage and Yoga, directly located on the Ganges. We took our last bath in the Ganges and after that I knew that I have to come back one day. (Who would have thought that this would be one year later). Preparing ourselves mentally for the arrival in Vrindavan. Diving into the practice of Bhakti Yoga.
When something is inspiring and shackling you so much – surrender. That’s what I did. To start something new you have to make room. Make room in your life, in your social environment, in your head and in your heart. Being on this journey means to confront myself with these topics of making room, letting […]
I realized that I am not going on holiday. I am going on a pilgrimage. Even when my colleagues at work wished me a safe trip and relaxing „holidays“ in India. End of September 2017 came and I found myself sitting on a plane to Delhi. Lovely memories followed me because exactly seven years ago in […]
Das Jahr nimmt ein aufregendes Ende, mit einer Reise nach Südamerika. Ein Herzenswunsch der in Erfüllung geht. Nach einem 14 Stunden langen Direktflug von Frankfurt nach Buenos Aires kommen wir müde aber glücklich an. Die Sonne scheint, 25 Grad Celsius. Der Urlaub kann beginnen. Am ersten Tag laufen wir noch recht planlos durch die Straßen, laufen […]
Mich hat das Fernweh wieder gepackt. 2013 war ich in Vietnam und für mich stand fest, es soll wieder nach Südostasien gehen. Da ich seit ca. 3 Jahren intensiver Yoga praktiziere, fiel die Entscheidung leicht. Bali. Am 29.04. bin ich spät abends in Denpasar gelandet, dort liegt der internationale Flughafen auf der Insel Bali. Neben mir im […]
