What has motivated me to take this journey? What make this trip so special?

The last 15 years have brought me to India in frequent business trips.
I have realized during this time that my way of perceiving life has become more and more influenced by my experiences in India. Every new trip mark for me a before and an after. Even after so much time spent in the country, India remains a fascinating mystery to me. I want to share this mystery with other women, by giving them both an enriching experience and an inner journey.

I invite you to live India, a wonderful, different and extreme country.
I invite you to take a different journey to this country, beyond what a typical organized tour can offer.
I invite you to see India from the inside, through my personal contacts in the county, my knowledge about the culture and my deep friendships developed over time.
I have included in our itinerary, besides the most important tourist attractions, numerous workshops, yoga and meditation practice, ritual ceremonies, conferences, culinary demonstrations, concerts, sessions of body movement and time for shopping, and various meetings with the different faces of Indian women.

This trip will allow us to perceive the spirit of the country in a special and unique way, and to fully enjoy it. The course has been designed in great detail, and the sites we will visit and activities we will undertake have been chosen with great care. The needs and desires of travelers have been the main consideration.

All Mango Shape trips use a local guide at all times, a member of our professional team in India. In this way we assure that the logistics are the best they can be, and that any inconveniences will be solved in a way only local people have access to. All our local partners have extense experience in international tourism.
It doesn't matter from which point of the world you join us, there will be someone to take care of you from the moment you arrive in the airport.
Why go on a women's journey?
Because when women are together in a group... something happens.
Because travel with women revives the joy and creativity, renews energy, makes the senses vibrate, creates intimacy and develops new ideas.
Because meeting with women from different cultures allows us to see things from another perspective and reconnect with our femenine side.
And especially because it is the best way to spend some time just for you

Primer evento de Mango Shape en España

Queridas mujeres, me complace anunciar el primer evento de Mango Shape en Barcelona...

Una tarde de encanto en el Hammam de Rituels d'Orient. 
Como sabéis, no nos limitaremos organizar viajes de mujeres a la India; también realizaremos encuentros para la familia de mujeres de Mango Shape en España.
Para viajar, desconectar y conocernos mejor… no siempre es preciso ir tan lejos.

Esta vez viajaremos hasta el Hammam de Rituels d'Orient, en Barcelona; la propuesta es recuperar un ritual de mujeres y encontrarnos, juntas, con el mundo del agua: sus sonidos, movimientos, olores y colores.
Realizaremos un recorrido típico oriental del hammam: dedicaremos primero un momento a reencontrarnos y volver a entrar en contacto antes de emprender este viaje. Luego, el itinerario nos llevará por los baños de vapor a diferentes temperaturas. Dilatadas, con los poros plenamente abiertos y la piel perfectamente humectada, pasaremos a la la exfoliación oriental: en camas de mármol, con jabón negro, se frotará vigorosamente con un guante kessa nuestro cuerpo. Este procedimiento renueva nuestra piel, mejorara la circulación sanguina y hace que nuestra energía circule con gran fluidez. Por último, dispondremos de un espacio en el que podremos reflexionar juntas sobre esa experiencia de profundo contacto con nuestro propio cuerpo, a través de los sentidos. Allí, podremos compartir también te y dulces.

Cuando y Donde-
Fecha: Jueves 28 de Abril
Horario: 19:00 – 21:30 - Se pide llegar 15 minutos antes.

Viaje de Mujeres a la India, con Tali, Mango Shape (febrero 2011)

¡Una experiencia inolvidable!

Si se te presenta esta oportunidad ¡No la dejes escapar!

Este viaje con Tali, ha sido un viaje “diferente”. Me habían dicho que ir a la India era algo excepcional. Ahora lo he comprobado.

Tali decía que era un viaje al exterior y al interior y también lo he experimentado.

En el viaje al exterior, como el que puede organizar cualquier agencia, hicimos todas las visitas de rigor; en Nueva Delhi, el Templo Sikh, el monumento en memoria de Gandhi, el Templo de Lotus, la vieja Delhi, paseo en Rickshwa..., en Jaipur, la excursión al Castillo de Amber Fort a lomos de elefante, el templo de Galtaji (de los monos), el City Palace… en Agra, el Castillo Rojo, la ciudad abandonada, el Taj Mahal…Todo con una organización perfecta y unos guías muy profesionales y muy agradables.

Pero hubo muchas sorpresas agradables que hicieron que el viaje fuera excepcional ya que tuvimos unas vivencias increíbles al compartir con Tali, su experiencia, sus conocimientos, y sobretodo, sus amistades, su pasión y su amor por la vida de la India.
En Nueva Delhi, fuimos a cenar a casa de Monisha, su amiga, y su familia, que nos hizo una demostración culinaria, dándonos a conocer la típica cocina hindú, y recibiéndonos como si fuéramos amigos de toda la vida.

De la misma manera nos recibieron el Sr. Gupta y su familia, que además de ofrecernos un magnífico cóctel, nos enseñaron el arte del sari para aprender a ponérnoslo.

En Jaipur, disfrutamos de un día lleno de emociones y de cariño compartiendo la vida de la familia de Tara en Achrol. La vida de una familia campesina hindú, constituida por el trabajo de la mujer. Preparamos con ellas el Chapati, ordeñamos a las búfalos, comimos, bailamos y reímos, como con los amigos de siempre. Una gran familia con la que nos sentimos muy unidos.

También en Jaipur tuvimos el honor de tener una audiencia privada con la Maharaní Ratna Kumari, con la que mantuvimos una interesante conversación sobre la mujer, la familia y el matrimonio.
Igualmente nos recibieron Sima y Raju, enseñándonos la artesanía del hierro forjado, y enseñándonos el trabajo de la mujer hindú de reciclar los Bangales (pulseras que usa toda mujer hindú) y nos hicimos unos servilleteros incrustando cristales. También nos invitaron a comer y a ver su casa.

Fuimos al Cine, al famoso Raj Mandar, a ver una película hindú, como cualquier hindú que se lo puede permitir.
Otra experiencia maravillosa fue la visita al taller textil en Sanganir, donde pudimos probar sus técnicas, estampando nosotras mismas nuestro propio diseño, siguiendo los consejos del gran maestro.

Pushkar y Rishikesh, merecen comentarios aparte.
En estos dos lugares se siente una energía especial. Quizás porque después del bullicio de las grandes ciudades, y su caos circulatorio, llegar a un pueblecito es encontrar la paz.

Pushkar, con su precioso lago y todo el pueblo a su alrededor, es un remanso de paz y tranquilidad. Allí disfrutamos de la salida del sol, antes de subir al Templo de Savitri, con unas vistas maravillosas.
Fuimos testigos de una ceremonia en el Templo de Brahma, participamos en una “POOJA” (rezo con ofrendas) y de una magnífica puesta de sol en el desierto al que llegamos con camellos, y una cena de gala con danza hindú incluida.

Rishikesh a orillas del Ganges tiene un encanto especial y allí tuvimos unas experiencias increíbles. Fuimos de excursión en 4X4, al Templo de Kunjapuri y allí divisamos y contemplamos la impresionante cordillera de Himalaya. ¡Un panorama inolvidable! Un momento emotivo que ninguna olvidaremos por la vivencia que allí tuvimos compartiendo el recuerdo de Lola por su madre.
Otra vivencia inolvidable fue la meditación que hicimos con un Gurú en la playa del Ganges , sus palabras y el entorno me llegaron a lo más profundo de mi ser.

El grupo era reducido y de mujeres encantadoras; esto hizo que nos sintiéramos todas muy unidas. Tali nos comunicó su cariño e hizo que lo recibiéramos y lo diéramos.

Ha habido momentos de silencio, de reflexión, momentos de yoga, de oración, momentos para la palabra del día”, momentos de “encuentro”, momentos para tomar un “chai” (té), para ir de compras por los bazares, momentos íntimos, emotivos, distendidos, divertidos… 

¡Ha habido de todo!. (Bueno, casi de todo porque momentos para dormir habían pocos).

¡Ha sido maravilloso!

Hemos conectado con la gente de la India, con su forma de vivir, sus creencias, sus religiones, sus miserias, sus riquezas, sus trabajos, su alimentación, su música, sus olores, sus colores….

¡Hemos vivido la India!

Todo lo que digo es poco, no expresa bien lo que he sentido.

 ¡Hay que vivir lo!

Cuando las cabezas de las mujeres se juntan alrededor del fuego


Cuando las cabezas de las mujeres se juntan alrededor del fuego

 Simone Seija Paseyro

Alguien me dijo que no es casual…que desde siempre las elegimos. Que las encontramos en el camino de la vida, nos reconocemos y sabemos que en algún lugar de la historia de los mundos fuimos del mismo clan. Pasan las décadas y al volver a recorrer los ríos esos cauces, tengo muy presentes las cualidades que las trajeron a mi tierra personal.
Valientes, reidoras y con labia. Capaces de pasar horas enteras escuchando, muriéndose de risa, consolando. Arquitectas de sueños, hacedoras de planes, ingenieras de la cocina, cantautoras de canciones de cuna.
Cuando las cabezas de las mujeres se juntan alrededor de “un fuego”, nacen fuerzas, crecen magias, arden brasas, que gozan, festejan, curan, recomponen, inventan, crean, unen, desunen, entierran, dan vida, rezongan, se conduelen.
Ese fuego puede ser la mesa de un bar, las idas para afuera en vacaciones, el patio de un colegio, el galpón donde jugábamos en la infancia, el living de una casa, el corredor de una facultad, un mate en el parque, la señal de alarma de que alguna nos necesita o ese tesoro incalculable que son las quedadas a dormir en la casa de las otras.
Las de adolescentes después de un baile, o para preparar un examen, o para cerrar una noche de cine. Las de “veníte el sábado” porque no hay nada mejor que hacer en el mundo que escuchar música, y hablar, hablar y hablar hasta cansarse. Las de adultas, a veces para asilar en nuestras almas a una con desesperanza en los ojos, y entonces nos desdoblamos en abrazos, en mimos, en palabras, para recordarle que siempre hay un mañana. A veces para compartir, departir, construir, sin excusas, solo por las meras ganas.
El futuro en un tiempo no existía. Cualquiera mayor de 25 era de una vejez no imaginada…y sin embargo…detrás de cada una de nosotras, nuestros ojos.
Cambiamos. Crecimos. Nos dolimos. Parimos hijos. Enterramos muertos. Amamos. Fuimos y somos amadas. Dejamos y nos dejaron. Nos enojamos para toda la vida, para descubrir que toda la vida es mucho y no valía la pena. Cuidamos y en el mejor de los casos nos dejamos cuidar.
Nos casamos, nos juntamos, nos divorciamos. O no.
Creímos morirnos muchas veces, y encontramos en algún lugar la fuerza de seguir. Bailamos con un hombre, pero la danza más lograda la hicimos para nuestros hijos al enseñarles a caminar.
Pasamos noches en blanco, noches en negro, noches en rojo, noches de luz y de sombras. Noches de miles de estrellas y noches desangeladas. Hicimos el amor, y cuando correspondió, también la guerra. Nos entregamos. Nos protegimos. Fuimos heridas e inevitablemente, herimos.
Entonces…los cuerpos dieron cuenta de esas lides, pero todas mantuvimos intacta la mirada. La que nos define, la que nos hace saber que ahí estamos, que seguimos estando y nunca dejamos de estar.
Porque juntas construimos nuestros propios cimientos, en tiempos donde nuestro edificio recién se empezaba a erigir.Somos más sabias, más hermosas, más completas, más plenas, más dulces, más risueñas y por suerte, de alguna manera, más salvajes.
Y en aquel tiempo también lo éramos, sólo que no lo sabíamos. Hoy somos todas espejos de las unas, y al vernos reflejadas en esta danza cotidiana, me emociono.
Porque cuando las cabezas de las mujeres se juntan alrededor “del fuego” que deciden avivar con su presencia, hay fiesta, hay aquelarre, misterio, tormenta, centellas y armonía. Como siempre. Como nunca. Como toda la vida.
