You’ve been on a journey my love,
To lands distant and different,
You’ve met people from races
and places, that loved you in an instant,
You left them behind, leaving a gap in their day, their hearts yearning for you,
you left them weeping and wishing you’d stay, but you never knew.
You felt their love, their smiles, their hold… but you won’t remember.
Maybe you’ll hold onto the feelings, but your memories will be the pictures that we treasure.

Annya Roy, she brings me so much closer to my sunshine.
Time away is not ever about escaping as such; More about reconnecting.
Reconnecting to the ‘me’ that I have forgotten, put on the back burner, who’s voice I ignore over and over again because now is not the right time, other people need me more, I haven’t achieved enough to be able to put myself first just yet. There is always tomorrow and after I have done this bit first.
There is never time for the child who’s voice you have spent years ignoring to the point that it’s hard to really hear what that child wants anymore or even ever again…
For me I’ve learnt that the truth of uncovering is much more powerful than discovering.
Our gold is beneath the surface. Scratch hard and see what glistens.
Ashram Ghandi is a beautiful ashram set on the edge of a mystical sea wall. On the other side a lotus pond, there is a nursery on site and you will be greeted by a few lazy cows.
Here we practise yoga, eat clean, chant and meditate under the moonlight.
We unplug and take time to breathe…it helps me get closer to my sunshine.
