One step closer

I feel as if my training for India has officially begun! The excitement I'm feeling right now is indescribable. I'm thrilled that I've found something that so closely fits my passion. I just got off an hour and a half phone conversation with Shaun Parry, the president of Promethean Spark International, and during that conversation he painted pictures in my mind as he described the history of Promethean Spark methodology. I'm so moved to hear the success stories that have already happened using this program. I truly believe that there is power in dance. It is a universal language that we all speak, and it has a healing power. Our bodies are powerful tools that we have been given, and if we learn to listen to our body, we can be changed. I can't wait to get to India to start dancing with those children and the patients in the colonies who are effected by leprosy. I believe that I have a lot to offer, and this is what I need to be doing with my life right now.

At the same time, I have so much to learn! There are so many questions buzzing through my head. What will it be like when I get there? How do these organizations, Promethean Spark and Rising Star actually operate. What will I be doing from day to day? In future posts, I plan to provide more history on where I will be going and the organizations that I will be working with. We'll be learning together! Let me know what you want learn more about and I will plan a post for it.

In other news, I took another big step forward today in my preparations for India. I submitted my visa application! My passport is currently flying through the air on its way to Houston, so it can be stamped with the magical papers that will get me into India. Lets cross our fingers that the Visa application process will go quickly and smoothly.

Next big step.... finish vaccinations! I was a pin cushion last week when I received Hep A and Hep B vaccinations both in one day, but it turns out that I still need one more shot, Typhoid Fever. So bring it on doc.....I'm ready for ya.
