This evening was a group dinner with all the people from around the world staying at Vaidyagrama. It was a beautiful evening that started with dinner served on banana leaves.
This was also my day of silence, so yes I participated and did not speak the entire day or at dinner. It was an incredible experience to be in a lively social setting to be a participant without talking. It was amazing how all honored the space and also the music and dance that followed was exceptional.
This is my last evening here and as I reflect on the week I can’t help but be inspired by all the wisdom here and the sense of caring and friendship that is taken by all who work and live here. I have yet to upload the photos of the wonderful staff who worked with us this past week, but will add to this post shortly to share those memories.
