This review is based on my 1 day experience with Rahul and Elefantastic on May of 2016. I had been looking for awhile for an opportunity to be up close and personal with elephants. When I knew that I was going to India, finding an Elephant that was in good care was my most important task. I found Elefantastic from reviews I had seen on tripadvisor. After reading them carefully, I knew that this was the one for me.
Rahul introduced me to Shaku, the 28 year old wise elephant of the family. She had been out all day playing with the herd and they were giving her a bath. In the first few moments, I grabbed my camera and was taking photos and video to capture this experience. Elephants have always been in my mind and heart, a spirit animal, one with very big and deep thoughts and their whole body is carried into their language which is a low vibration that carries for miles and miles. The language of elephants is beautiful and mystical and I am completely enchanted with their sound and structure.
Rahul took his time to be mindful about all the different aspects of elephant care and attention. He gave me special instructions on how to communicate with her especially being sensitive to her eyes and rubbing her under her chin. I am and for always grateful for this experience. She is a guide and a teacher and I hope to see her again soon! <3
I am lucky enough to have had the opportunity to go on this retreat last September 16, 2016. My dear friend, Arun decided to join me last minute and it made for a great and magical tour of Peru. Journeying through time and space, we made our way into the unknown land of the Sacred Valley. We both learned about Ayahuasca and how the plant is a very potent teacher. Journeying with many others from different parts of the world, we climbed mountains, tended to sheep, stretched, rested, wrote, photographed, danced, ate a lot of wonderful food and drank a lot of herbal tea. The journey of Ayahuasca is a deep one and rooted in sacred spirituality. I felt exhilarated and contented with the great expanse of land available to walk on, the beauty of the nearby river, the building with its incredible paintings and designs throughout the entire structure. We saw an abundance of wildlife, including hummingbirds, frogs, condors, dogs, cats and horses. So much to take in. I felt that I was breathing for the first time. Something changed in me so that I could feel again. Love was moving me.
