Spirit of India Seminar Series
A unique seminar series for Colchester.
"If I were asked under what sky the human mind has most fully developed some of its choicest gifts, has most deeply pondered on the greatest problems of life, and has found solutions, I should point to India"
Yoga, Indian Food, Bindi, Bollywood, Diwali are just some of the ways India is trickling into people’s lives in Britain. It is a vast and fascinating country, with thousands of years of history, over hundred major languages, and offering some of the best hospitality on this planet.
