The Glorious (and Gory) Story

Being sent on a Spirit Quest to do seva (service) for the Asian Elephants of Thailand, I had little idea of what that meant. I had only a remembrance that I had been there 10 years ago. At that time, my heart was calling me to ride an elephant in the jungles of Chiang Mai, which dramatically changed the course of my life in an amazing way. I learned how to follow the call of my heart, even if it meant parting ways with my dear friend and travel buddy, traveling solo for the first time ever, and getting deathly ill alone in a room with a mosquito soundtrack blasting around my head. As a result, I made new friends, persevered past physical limitations, and found incredible connection and communion with the elephants and natural environment.
