Very happy to have had Samira and Yannick over at Talking Clay Studio in Dharamshala for a week. Samira found us through Google, while looking for a place in the Himalayas where she could pot and her friend Yannick joined the 7 day beginners course.
It’s our first time welcoming people to the studio. We have always envisioned sharing this beautiful studio space and hope this is just the beginning of such happenings.
We had some amazing conversations through the 7 days. About movies/books/news and their impact on our minds. If creating movies is predicting or defining the future? About living in a community space. The hierarchy, politics and religion of such living. Being choice full versus going with the unconscious heard or whatever flow is available.
Yannick shared that he is on a journey to gain more knowledge and inner wisdom. Samira can’t wait to open her own studio in Dheradun.

Touched by the stories told by the Dance performance ‘The Courtesan – An Enigma’ by Manjari Chaturvedi and the Narritive by Neesha Singh on the lives of well known courtesans (Gauhar Jaan ! :-)) http://www.sufikathak.com/
Also attended the Dhrupad concert by the Gandecha Brothers

Reminded me of the little interaction with Zia Fariduddin Dagar at the end of a small intimate gathering in IHC many years ago. Thanks to my friend Arjun for having invited me for both these events.
