I first went to India in 1981 to see the sage and spiritual teacher Osho Rajneesh in Pune. It was a momentous trip with Daniel Noll who was a devotee of Osho. We flew with Air Lanka from Zurich and arrived in Colombo, Sri Lanka, where  we spent 3 weeks sightseeing the beaches and riding around on a motorbike. It was exciting and scarey on that mororbike because Daniel had been in a life threatening motorbike accident in Zurich the year before; he had faced near death and was now eager to live each moment to the full! We spent a week in Kalkuddah in a basic and simple hut right on the beach. Then on to India and the chaos of Bombay before a horrendous taxi ride to the hills of Pune. The ashram was a sanctuary filled with Europeans, Americans, Australians and devotees from all over the world. The Germans seemed to love the progressive encounter groups that were held in this ashram. It was a mixed bag of spirituality, laughter, therapy, dating club and the pursuit of enlightenment! What a playful and colourful environment!
I was to return to India as well as Thailand again in 1987, 1990, 1992 and 2001 - and each trip was different and involved a variety of experiences.

Here is my book, which is a collection of narratives about those experiences, observations and insights during those trips!

I would be grateful for your review or rating that you would like to post on about my book.

thankyou so much
