I have been inspired recently by various writers, scientists and seekers who are questioning our relationship to the world, looking specifically at how we relate across species borders, and how, if we look a bit more deeply, how we can rediscover and mend our kinship with all life.
Holy Cow! I am going to India again. Back to the chaos, wonders, smells, insanity and opportunities! The main purpose of this trip is to volunteer in an animal shelter and hospital just outside of Udaipur in Rajasthan, to gain more experience with being with and learning from animals. The organisation I’ll be visiting is called Animal Aid Unlimited – they describe what they do as “[serving] fallen angels with tenderness, respect, and joy”, and work with ownerless street animals in a busy centre in Badi Village just outside Udaipur city.
The shelter is a charitable organisation that is always looking for more support, so if you feel like sending a donation, I’ll send more information on how to do that as I go on.
I hope you’ll follow me on this journey through my blog posts. And please, please feel free to comment on any of the posts. It’s always so supportive to know there are friends out there, following my movements in far-off places.
I leave on 10th April: 1st stop Mumbai!
