Description of Divining Moments
For generations, visits by Westerners to the subcontinent of India have been documented. For each traveler the journey, inner and outer, is unique. Such a journey is recounted within the series of letters that make up Divining Moments. Mea Lashbrooke is an English teacher who traveled to McLeod Ganj in North India to teach English to the Buddhist monks. Here she was introduced to people, practices, and experiences that became opportunities to assess her own life.
Attending the studies of His Holiness the Fourteenth Dalai Lama; understanding the life of Tibetan refugees; encountering a society of living faiths; trekking the Himalayan foothills; working the fields of Navdanya Farm, the domain of Dr Vandana Shiva, internationally renowned defender of food and water justice; meditating in the Sinai Desert under the guidance of Dr Satish Kumar, one of the greatest eco-warriors of this generation and attending mass in a 1600-year-old chapel are some of the encounters that make up Mea's journey to India and the Sinai Peninsula.
