Namaste Himalaya "B",

Don't let the "B" lead you to believe that this program will be nothing less than inspiring and life changing!! In about 6 weeks you will find yourself amongst adventurous peers and seasoned instructors who contain pearls of wisdom to share as you traverse together through Himalayan landscapes. In all likelihood, this is a once in a lifetime experience, and I hope you are growing anxious with excitement. The possibility for introspection and cultural exchange is, truly, endless. Our invitation is that you open you arms, minds, and hearts to fully experience new ways of being in this world.

So, congratulations for stepping into the unknown and joining Dragons. You may not know it yet, but you have just joined a world widecommunity of deeply curious, caring, and passionate people.

Who am I and why am I writing, you may wonder. I'm the Program Director for your course, which means I work in the Boulder Office and am thus your point person. My journey with Dragons began in 2005 when I led a course in Tibet, followed the next summer by Sikkim, India, and then finally the India Semester. I was first drawn to South Asia in college, and have returned many times with Dragons and independently. I assure you that once you marvel at the Himalayas and the people who therein dwell, you'll be hooked for life.

Your instructors will introduce themselves soon; however, two of them are currently leading our Nepal Arts summer course. To remain fully present, I requested that they not turn their minds quite yet tothe fallbefore their summer course ends come August. Know that a ton of thought and over a decade of experience in the Himalayas has laida foundation to bring you to some of the most remoteoff-the-beaten-path places in South Asia. I will let them entice your imaginations with some of the exceptional experiencesthey have envisioned.

Until then... Who are you? Here and now is the time to introduce yourself and share your hopes, anxieties, quirks, etcetera. Who will take the first, bold step to say hello? One of my greatest joys is talking about this region of the world that awaits you, so please feel free to ask questions, too. I'm always on the other end of the Yak board!

And so, I look forward to following you through your time of anticipation, preparation, departure, arrival, shock, acceptance, inspiration, tribulation, revelation and all that looped over and over and over again. How good can it get??!!

All my envy,

Reed
