In Just one week I make my pilgrimage to the Sacred Valley in Peru. I have always dreamed of going to this exotic destination, and I can hardly believe that I am finally going. The Time Is Right!
I discovered that there was an International Expressive Art Therapy Conference AND and Indigenous Education Conference happening in August. I heard the call. The nice thing was that I found out about the Arts Conference while looking at an orphanage online called Casa De Milagros (House of Miracles). Unfortunately they are not taking volunteers at this time as they are still coming to terms with the passing of their beloved Mamma Kia; an extraordinary woman who set up the orphanage to look after all the poor homeless children in Cuzco.
But the House of Miracles has set me on another path...
...and then its onto San Francisco and the Burning Man Festival out in the Nevada Desert. This incredible 25 year old festival has massive art installations that blow your mind, not to mention the culture of leave no trace and gifting - no money changes hands once you enter the week long festival. Quite a Transformational experience, this year's theme is Rights of Passage.
I'll be off in a week - for a true right of passage. Nothing will be the same after this.
