After returning from Nepal, one day, I decided to clean out the pantry in my house. There was so much food in there, more than three people could possibly need, and it felt wrong--after a semester of immersing myself in and learning the beauty and peacefulness of simplicity, I couldn't sit with a home that so often felt excessive, cluttered, and wasteful. At first, I had only set out to separate the amount of food that I felt my family and I didn't need, in order to donate the rest to a food pantry... but I soon realized that so many things were expired, that I could eliminate so much of the inventory just by following the sloppily printed "Use by" dates on the sides of cardboard packages and plastic containers. Each time I eliminated an item, a jar of oil, a box of crackers... Waste. Waste. Oh, more waste. We save Chinese food leftovers, and then never eat them. Gone. The fresh fruit we bought last week begins to rot. Thrown away. I accidentally leave a smoothie on the counter instead of returning it to the fridge. My father comes along and pours it out. These photos depicts a mountain of food, all expired, which previously lived in my pantry. It makes me wonder how many days it could feed a small family (in America, let alone anywhere else). Or how many hours went into making this food, the packaging, the labels... how much money my family could have saved, or little units of carbon emissions we could have saved the world. Who else might have been able to use these resources, had we not wasted them. A jar of peanut oil had been expired for so long, 12 years, that I was seven years old when it passed its date. So what do I do with this? Well, I'll empty out all the old food--maybe this might be the beginning of a compost pile I've been wanting to start for a few weeks now--and recycle all the packaging that I can. But more importantly, what does this mean about my lifestyle? My "standard of living," the energy that I'm used to consuming? And how can I change it? My travels abroad inherently remind me of how fortunate I am to have such an upbringing, but what makes this better than a hut along a creek in Guatemala, this feeling like I’m part of a really big problem? Maybe this is one of the first steps in a big process for me, and maybe my family. I certainly just hope I haven't just made room in the pantry for more stuff. [post_title] => Wasting, and why?

Dear Friends and Family, The final part of the Dragons adventure is typically called "Transference". It's the time when we reflect on all of our learnings and explore ways to integrate everything we've absorbed in the semester into our lives back at home. Our students have renamed this phase "Transcendence," when we move above and beyond -- ever-growing, ever expanding. We have spent the last few days at a small organic farm on the outskirts of Bhaktapur in our Trascendence phase. We have reflected back, looked forward, celebrated. We have connected the dots between our learnings about Nepal, and taken time to reflect on our individual growth. We've also discussed the challenges we might face upon our return home, and ways that we might work with those challenges. For the final ceremony, our CIDL Ladies led us in a beautiful sharing which revealed the tightly woven fabric of our group dynamic. After our final day exploring Bhaktapur yesterday, we ended in Boudha, where we did kora together and then lit butter lamps -- coming full circle from the first days of our semester. Tonight we say goodbye as we part ways -- geographically, at least, but not in our heart connections. We wish Riley, Jesse, Bee, Alison and Sam safe travels for the flight home, and we wish Kendall, Lili, Simon, Anisha, Catherine and Adea all the best in their continued travels around Nepal and beyond! To the Sangha of the Rising Sun: We will miss you!   [post_title] => Transcendence!

    [post_content] => to nepal 
thank you for these past three months
for opportunities to see, explore, and learn at every turn
for leaving unanswered questions 
and the dream of returning someday

to mom, dad, and my family at home
i’m grateful for your support, love, and constant emails 
for allowing me to take this big journey 
and providing such smiling faces to return to

to the him a sangha 
thank you for making each day a new adventure
filled with laughter, celebrated highs, and shared lows
as we navigated our individual and group experiences, together

to my kathmandu and balamchoor families 
thank you for opening your homes and hearts to me
for teaching me to make momos and celebrate tihar 
to beat daal and smear buff poop on fresh fields 
to live as a real member of a new family 

i’ll miss the simple moments and beautiful memories 
playing basketball against monks and volleyball against schoolkids 
laughing with artists as i struggle to learn thangka
watching stunning sunrises amid monastery prayer flags
moments of quiet on trek through jungles and by mountains 
circling the boudha stupa, the smell of incense, the sound of chanting 
eating fresh daal bhat and warm chiiya 
in the company of new friends 

i’m grateful for this time
for the things i’ve experienced, ways i’ve learned and grown
and for the hope that i continue to learn and grow 
looking back on my journey here

    [post_content] => Namaste,

This is me ,Shanti Magar from Nepal. I am currently working for Himalayan A Group in Kathmandu. I have been working in the progam since 2013 as translator . I was a student when I joined Dragons for the first time. I had no idea what I was going to do there and how am I gonna fit in the that environment. I was so nervous when I met Dragons students at first,completely surprised and overwhelming.But,now I feel my job is amazing and I love doing it!

This progamme has been very helpful to make my own decision of my life and at the same time being an independent girl.My parents were not happy that I was working because of time off Dragons have and they wanted me to work in long term work.I was really confused but at that time,Adrian helped me out of this situation,who was instructor at that time. I-teams has always been inspiring image for me whom seeing I can build up myself.There are so many things that I have learned from the students and instructors. And I am so happy that I made right decision and was able to get this opportunity in my life. Meeting new people every semester, observing them, learning from them, and helping them translating and having fun. I never had thought that I will be hanging out with the group of American people and be so friendly with them and having some deep conversation with them. Thanks Dragons for giving me this opportunity.

We recently did our expedition phase and right we are doing transference. During expedition, I was watching students how they are going to make all this trip on their own. As I mention before also, I always inspire from them,and I did this time too. I feel very happy that I was part of this group. When we were in village, I love doing translation and as I was translating for them, it was not only for them but I was also learning at the same time. I have never been in village before dragons, now I really wanna see my village. It has gave me opportunity to  explore my own country. When we wre on trek,for the first time I realised how beautiful is my country, why people often comes for trek,why there are many poems on beauty of nature and Nepal. I might not have felt this if I was not in Dragons.

At last, we are at the time where people leave us behind. It has always been hard but that is also one lesson we will learn to face in future. I am very happy that we were part of your life in Nepal. It was pleasure of meeting you all .We will miss you so much.. Kendall,Lili,Alison,Bee,Catherine,Adea,Anisha,Jessie,Simon and others..... I just want to say that Wherever you are gonna be in future,Be happy.  Wish You ALL THE BEST!! AND DON'T FORGET NEPAL!!

Last,but not the least,I want to thank my Lovely personalities,Adrian and Shannon for everything. If you weren't there I would not have able to have this wonderful and meaningful time in my life. You are always be my favorite. And also Thanks to my I-team for being always supportive,understanding and generous. I know, if you haven't encourage me to write the yak, Briana, I might not have been able to do  it never. I hope this didn't make you all bored,though. I hope this is not going to be last yak ,though!

Love,

Shanti

    [post_content] => The trip is on it's final days and as we take the space to reflect, I ask myself again why do I travel?

I think it was hour 13 or so of our travels to Kathmandu when I looked at this prompt first. Although the long flights are pretty much a blur I can remember my rather cookie-cutter response. You travel to experience new cultures, i said, and to gain different perspective. That is still true, but not as true to me as I once thought.

When I woke up each morning to the sound of my Amaa feeding the goats, I'd peek through the cracks of wood that made the walls of my bedroom to feel the warmth of the yellow light rising over the mountains. The village never had an agenda and everyone was satisfied. Here, in the Gurung Village of Balamchoor, I wasn't comparing our two cultures or trying to envision myself living this life everyday. I didn't feel the need to analyze everything and understand it. But I know I felt like I was i the right place at the right time.

That doesn't really give any insight on my new thoughts on travel but that is because I'm still trying to understand it. For now, I know it makes me extremely happy and I feel like its what I should be doing at this point in my life.

    [post_content] => This morning after having fresh baked bread the Sangha of the rising sun gathered around the table in this Nepali farm house so that I could hold the last Sangha. Having heard me talk a lot these past couple days I attempted to turn over our time to the group, so we wrote a poem. Each person was told to write a line about anything they desired, and then fold down the paper making the words invisible to the next person they passed it to. After being passed around the group this is what it came to read (each new line is a new person, I wish I could put their handwriting here too).

 

Cold dew drops in the garden bring you inside to your friends,

As the silence of the villages becomes filled with children laughing, goats braying

You can't fall off a mountain.

YOU ARE GOD

Can the mountains show me how to live with passion?

and, swollen ankles won't take away from soaring highs of adventures yet to come.

Here we found a figurative 'El Dorado,' with a wealth of experience & knowledge. It was a thing of beauty. But that's almost over now.

Every teardrop is a waterfall

Diving into hay stacks and dreaming into the sun

We've opened our hearts to a wondrous world full of possibility.

Morning crawling night, diffused light through cracks, quiet thoughts.

I wake up to a yellow hue.

from Pharping to Thimi,

and they all smiled.

As Catherine yakked out the front of the bus,
Simon & Anisha were making a fuss
by looking for restaurants to keep us well-fed,
and Alison gleefully doled out the meds.
Sam kept everyone on their feet
so all the monetary ends did meet.
Jesse & Riley found us places to sleep tight
and Kendall & Bee made sure we didn't fight.
Adea led some great conversation
while Lili arranged our safe transportation.
We've been having a blast in Palpa and Lumbini
while the i-team has been... drinking martinis? (jk)
We've worked really hard and come through as a team
and we've fulfilled all of our expedition dreams.
