Prana: Mandala’s End

Here is the next AND FINAL part of Prana (Book 6 of Waldmeer). Thanks for sharing the journey!

In Prana Community:

It was the end of the forty-day mandala which began at Mahashivratri. It was also the last day that Guru Gadubanud was at Prana Community. Most mornings, Merlyn had been travelling to Prana, from Shambhavi and Veronica’s property, to do Veronica’s yoga class (even though it wasn’t her favourite). She did it out of respect for living in their bungalow and also out of respect for Shambhavi (who was her favourite).

Prana: Infinitely Inclusive

Here is the next (and second last) part of Prana (Book 6 of Waldmeer).

Outsiders and Insiders

In the Wurt Wurt Koort Tearooms:

“Hello, Mer-Mer,” Tom called out happily as Merlyn walked into the cafe after her Waldmeer Warrior’s dance class with Shambhavi that morning. “Lover-boy isn’t here, today.”

Clearly, Rybert has told Tom that he and I are no longer a couple, thought Merlyn. Not that we ever really were.

Tom’s little Brussels Griffon, Hardy, scuffled over to Merlyn for a pat. He wasn’t supposed to be in the front of the shop but he was so delightful and so loved by all the customers that his bed, in the backroom, remained empty most of the time when they were there.

During a quieter moment, Tom came and sat next to Merlyn; best of friends, again.

Prana: MahaShivRatri

Dancing the Dark Away

In Waldmeer:

Shambhavi’s first dance class went as well as could be expected at the Waldmeer Warriors. After Farkas’s recent passing, Ide remembered the Manipura Dancers of Prana Community. She had not been there for years but contacted them through Merlyn. Shambhavi was sent as the new dance teacher.

Prana: Going Back

Old Friend

Back to now, in Waldmeer:

One end-of-summer morning, after Farkas’s dance aerobics class at the Waldmeer Warriors, Merlyn decided to stay and chat with her older friend, Ide. Merlyn had become so immersed in her life at Prana Community that she hadn’t been outside its perimeter since moving there. She wasn’t sure if her self-imposed isolation was due to an increased desire for spiritual progress or if it was a way of avoiding the pain of Ben’s relationship with Esther. Either way, it now seemed sensible to re-enter the world, even though that meant an hour-and-a-half drive for a single dance class.
