This year I took leap of faith and after a magical week, I wrote about it here and booked myself on to a Sikhi camp. It just felt right, after all I learn a lot from home and don’t have a sangat of people locally so it seemed the most logical thing to do anyway!
I drove the furthest I have ever (think 180 miles) to Wales alone and turned up ready to learn and have an experience at Khalsa Camp. Which I did – totally! I had an incredible time and the conversations and connections made were completely priceless.
I was one of a few that had been practicing Sikhi for a mostly short time and surrounded by people who had grown up as Sikh and/or have received Amrit and it was such a blessing and wonderful time. If you had told me that before I would have been really nervous (I was even at the thought of hundreds of people being there) but everyone was peaceful, compassionate and welcoming.
Here are some highlights:
Thank you to the Khalsa Foundation for putting on a wonderful camp, I had the most incredible experience and one I will repeat whether at a Khalsa camp or another- a worthwhile experience for sure.
