The Next Chapter

We finished our classes at Vaidyagrama today. It is amazing the time has passed so effortlessly. We are off tomorrow to Bangalore as the first stop on a few weeks’ tour. Coincidentally, “the President” and his wife completed their treatment here today and leave tomorrow as well, so a farewell gathering with a traditional Indian dance performance by Dr. Harikrishnan’s daughter and chocolate cake was held tonight. Three of us students sang an anthem to Vaidyagrama that we wrote under deadline last night… And now, a few more items to pack, and a chapter has closed. I am even more grateful that I am returning here in just a few weeks. I know months of integration of information and experiences lies ahead….

Dr. Om, Emily, Dr. Ramdas and Ivy

    What a wonderful treat to discover your blog about your experiences of being here. It was so delightful to hear your Ode to Vaidyagrama. Could you please post the lyrics? They were delightful!

    Thank you for everything while I’ve been here. I’m leaving VG with a deep appreciation of Pacha Karma, the doctors at Vaidyagrama, and everything else (which is spelled out in the Ode to VG).

    I look forward to staying in touch, and hopefully being able to read about your experience of being on the table!

      Hello dear Damcho! So sweet to have you reading along. We have just returned from our month of travels, so I have started spending a bit of time on the table, as you say. So far, it’s been lovely and I am anticipating more of the same. I too look forward to keeping in touch! Much love, ivy
