Wednesday Walk ~ Meeting the Masai

Happy Wednesday Friends!

On today’s ‘Wednesday Walk’, I share one of the most amazing experiences I have had while in Kenya ~ meeting the Masai people. The people from this Masai village warmly welcomed us with dance and music, inviting us to share in their traditions and way of life. Witnessing their connection to the earth and their self-expression through song and movement was a powerful reminder that happiness is best found in the simple things: holding hands with a new friend, the exhilaration felt while jumping up and down, and getting your feet a little dirty while dancing in community.

I would love to hear from you. What are some of the powerful, life-changing experiences you have had in your life that are culturally diverse? How have you connected with people of other cultures? Please leave a comment on the blog so we can all learn from you!

All love,

jodi

    A year or so ago I was in Ranthambore,India. One day a friend and I ventured alone to a women’s crafting center to buy locally made goods. When we were finished we came upon a circle of women who were sewing quilts together.One of them was dancing to make her friends laugh but stopped and quickly got back to work as we got closer. We wanted to share our appreciation of their work and we approached. While we didn’t
    speak the same language, we got our point across. I mentioned the girl we caught dancing. After a lot of giggling and gesturing we got her to get back up and teach us her steps. It was a love story she was telling with her movements. The 3 of us danced for the circle of craftswomen until we we
    all laughing hysterically. We embraced them all, shed tears of connection and joy and moved on our way. It still brings tears to my eyes.

    We all can connect with each other if we just reach out and try. Maybe we should try every day…couldn’t hurt…
