Diwali— The Festival of Lights "victory of light over darkness, good over evil and knowledge over ignorance." The actual holiday isn’t until November 7th (this Wednesday ), but this was a festival held at the YMCA with a lot of the local Indian community coming together.
It was absolutely amazing to see a glimpse of the Indian Culture 🇮🇳! I loved the positivity behind it and I LOVED the dancing! The footwork of these women (and men!) was phenomenal!
After the performances and dancing, everyone did a sort of meditation together (similar to a yoga without floor/ deep poses) it was a way to ground yourself . Then we all received a “blessing” and they gave us all a hot meal ! I wish I knew what any of it was — some type of curry, but everything was absolutely delicious !
