Walking into a huge temple and connecting to your inner self is an amazing way to start the day. All of the beautiful views and amazing company of super close friends made the bond even stronger. Starting with a ritual in honor of Turis’s grandfather who just passed away and also getting the opportunity to recognize the loved ones each of us have lost.
Going onto gamelan and learning how to play one of the most challenging patterns really makes your mind work. However the amazing teachers made it possible for us to enjoy the frustration and keep working at it till we finally sounded amazing.
This trip has been so eye opening, showing us the different things that we can accomplish that we never in our lives thought we would try. Finding who we really are inside is an adventure that we will never forget.
