We began our last morning in Nepal watching the sunrise over the Himalayas. It was a clear morning and the Himalayan range was visible again revealing snow capped mountains that changed color as the sun made its way gracefully across the sky. Our first task for today was to dive into meditation. I led the group through a guided meditation practice that we have been studying. Surrounded by beautiful gardens and the Himalayas in the background with crisp mountain air, it was the perfect setting for meditation.
After meditation the group enjoyed a lovely breakfast on the deck. The views are amazing all around us and it is hard to imagine such a place. Then we gathered under a banyan tree to spend the next couple of hours in class. Today, the group learnt about the subconscious mind – how it works, how to clear it and how to impress it with positive patterns. The subconscious is the gateway between the conscious and superconscious mind. In order to access our superconscious mind we need to start by clearing our subconscious first of unresolved emotional experiences.
After lunch we said goodbye to this lovely resort and Nepal as we made our way to the airport to board our flight to New Delhi, India’s capital. We arrived in Delhi late evening and made our way through its busy streets arriving a kilometer shy of our hotel. So, we got the group into cycle-rickshaws and everyone enjoyed this ride through narrow streets and lanes (inaccessible by a bus) to our hotel in old Delhi. Our spiritual adventurers spent the remaining hours exploring old Delhi on their first night in India.
