Ladakh - Workshops
Life, Learnings and more from there.


This trip is what changed many things in my life. It was my sister's idea to travel as voluntary teachers in Ladakh. We had the opportunity to visit a number of different schools and regions where we worked with children, conversed with monks and also painted a few walls. 

There is something about the atmosphere and people that makes you connect to them at once. There pervades a type of slowness in their day to day life, which disperses a feeling of calm and peace. The locals radiate happy vibes and their constant dealings with the forces of nature, both beautiful and brutal has resulted in them in being united and trusting of each other. 

This journey was about giving and consequently about getting some of the best things that life could bring my way.
