Welcome

Namaste.

Welcome to After the Monsoon. At one level, it is the place to find out about my art, my teaching and my work and escorted journeys in Nepal.

At another level After the Monsoon is a celebration of waking up and having another chance to live a compassionate and mindful life.

Why After the Monsoon?

During the monsoon, Nepal  is a sea of swirling colour.  Mud laden rivers surge, gutters gush, lightning cracks, thunder crashes and sweat flows.

After the monsoon, the world is aglow. Greens of such intensity they nearly hurt your eyes. Colour abounds – vermillion, magenta, violet, scarlet and glowing yellows.  This vibrant fertility is my metaphor for abundant generosity.  It feeds my passion for colour and nourishes my art and my teaching.

I no longer live in Nepal but spend months there each year with the women of Samunnat Nepal and taking interested travellers on the Colourful Journey. Read more about me here and please enjoy exploring the site and reading my blog.

    Wendy,
    We “met” through SSM and BBB. Traced you at last – through Cynthia Tinapple’s Book. (Did not want to bother D or T with my search for you.)
    I am returning from South Africa to Auckland around October this year as my Permanent Residency application to New Zealand was successful.
    I have this urge to offer my help for the Nepal project. I don’t have a clue why, or what, or when or anything. Just this urge to offer assistance.
    What is it you want me to do? What is it you are begging the Universe about?

      Darling Sarah!!! I have been a bit hopeless with my blog but am returning to it. I have only just found this comment and will try to email you because you may well have given up on me buy now. You wouldn’t happen to be a web designer? That is one thing we have been begging the Universe about. Alternatively, come on the Colourful Journey trip next year and see what happens! I will email. I am in Nepal now. My last full week here before returning to Oz to reconnect with family. It has been an amazing time. I never for one second take for granted that I can be a tiny part of this. Looking forward to talking!
