National Outdoor Leadership School India Spring Semester, 2018

India Spring Semester in April 2018 brought 15 National Outdoor Leadership School students and 2 instructors to the Vrikshalaya Centre for an immersion into ‘Nature and Culture.’ They all engaged in different mountain activities, from learning first aid, to how local people offer prayers to Buddha on the poornima or full-moon day, to short hikes and the meditation technique of contemplating nature, to learning how to use local hand tools or make chapattis.
