It began with a surfing expedition off the South West coast of India - Kerela. Louis set out to explore the Lakshadweep Islands, having heard whispers of perfect undiscovered waves.
After a 21 hour voyage by boat into the Arabian Sea, we arrived to a beautiful tropical Island. The next few days were like magic, surfing emerald colour waves, swimming with sea turtles and exchanging stories with the friendly local people.
Back on mainland India visiting the ìPortugese Palaceì, while gazing upon a mandala painted in Natural earth colours over 500 years ago, slightly fading away into impermanence. Something changed within, feeling a sense of calm and inspiration by these experiences , finding a deeper calling into the world of spirituality, into the realm of Consciousness.
