This is so beautiful, its what heaven must be like. Actually it's a photo of Arusha National Park in Tanzania. OK here is my offer to you. A. get up EXTRA early, get out a shovel, wrap up like Nanook of the north you bastard its cold out there! Start shoveling your car out of that ice ridden snow infused driveway or parking space. Make the commute from hell to work. B. pack light but durable clothing, bring a yoga mat, your camera, and Hemingway's The Snows of Kilimanjaro and bring yourself to Paradise. Linda Sama of Meta Yoga will be leading a yoga retreat in the acacia forest, in Tazanzia, February 26,27,28. 2010. Linda is an old soul, peaceful and living in the light. She really has a way of making you feel good and know that no matter what is going on everything is going to be OK. Check out her blog and you'll see what I mean.
In the meantime here are some details. Tanzania (United Republic of Tanzania) is located in eastern Africa between Kenya and Mozambique, bordering the Indian Ocean. With an area twice the size of California, Tanzania contains spectacular landscapes and abundant natural resources. To name a few, Serengeti, Ngorongoro Crater, Lake Manyara, Olduvai Gorge, Tarangire National Park, and Mount Kilimanjaro are famous tourist destinations.
The full details for the retreat can be found here. There is an option to extend your stay and safari or stay in a beautiful hotel by the sea. The fee is amazingly reasonable and part of the proceeds will go toward The Seva Foundation. Good travels while building good karma, can't beat that!
