Here is the volunteer program website.

A fundraiser to help me raise money for my Cross Cultural Solutions initial fees.

I would be traveling to Dharamsala, India as a volunteer to assist in community development - or to provide care giving for infants, children and people with disabilities.The program lasts from three to twelve weeks.

I have felt a strong urge to reach out and help in this program for quite some time now. I also have a desire to learn more about a culture that fascinates me - and help the people who make up that culture in any way possible!

A personal mantra of sorts I wrote years ago -

I wish to strive and aspire to transcend the mundane in every aspect of life. In every breath of a dream-an every waking and sleeping lucid thought.

To find dark in the light and light in the dark-to both challenge and understand--to question the answers and as well, question the questions...

I pray to always be mindful and have the desire for something new and unexpected. To have the sight to view my flaws and stagnancy and to speak, create and live for every moment that the blood is flowing through my mortal body and eternal soul.

I refuse to accept denial as a form of comfort and realize its saddening numbness and ever so sly personality.

At this very moment I choose life. I pray to cling to nothing lest my passion and do everything in my power to act out these passions and bring them to life. Never to hold them inside but to share them with the world in hopes of a stronger connection, understanding-compassion and ignition of something greater than the norm.

I wish for the strength to discipline my mind and the mindfulness to remember lifes lessons in the hopes of bettering myself-touching the souls who cross my path and maybe, with a bit of luck-somehow making a difference in this world.
