Winter 2015

I returned from India with gratitude and love.  This trip was sponsored by Feathered Pipe Ranch, Helena, MT, one of the oldest centers for conscious living and yoga retreats in the country.  The tour was led by Baxter Bell, MD, RYT 500. We visited Delhi, Haridwar, the Ganges River, Rishikesh, Jaipur, Bharatpur, Agra, Khajuraho, Varanasi, and Sarnath.  I heard noise like never before, saw filthy cities, and poverty that is unimaginable to many in the United States.  I also saw  an abundance of wealth and beauty.  There were communities of love and ceremonies of light and faith that touched my soul.  I am humbled.
