Visiting the Land of Om-bama

Landing in the United States of America, on the 6th of July 2008, was a dream come true. The Immigration officer was perplexed to have a French national born and residing in India visiting his country but thanks to Jack Alexander’s invitation letter everything went smoothly.
Being in the Aqua Bodywork World I decided to do a Water Shiatsu Course (eventually leading me towards becoming a practitioner) with the Guru at Harbin Hot springs, Middle Town. To discover the American species was another of my motivations. And finally, sadly but true in our present economic crisis in Auroville; where we are barely supported, I imagined I would return with some cash to support the 20 acres of forest land in Auroville.

Thanks to our Auroville family I was able to visit California. Often I was reminded that I was in California and not America. Larry Nagel was a great host. Jack and Mary, my extended family, were hospitable (almost beat the Indians), graceful and welcoming. Paco, in Oakland, is a great man, hard working and super cool. With his help I did the WATSU course.
Thanks to Mary and Jyoti Alexander who introduced me to the self healing world, I managed to do several courses: Theta Healing, Psych-K and Emotional Freedom Techniques – with the money that I was planning to save. I am grateful to have done these courses. My package deal was complete. And it was time for me to return home because someone remarked, “You’re starting to look Californian!”
