A prime chance to jump back on this blogging, as I embark on a teaching adventure in East Africa. It's bene a couple of years since I've posted on this site. Not because I didn't want to, I just have been putting a bit less energy into my writing, and more into just traveling, teaching and rapping.
But I've received a position teaching with George Town University and State Department sponsored Fellowship, on a small island in the Indian Ocean, called Mauritius. As an adventurous spirit, I know for a fact that I can make it a powerful experience, the key is to stay as conscious and focused on my primary goal: to teach and learn. Of course I have various aspirations, and we'll see what the situation will allow me to accomplish.
I'd like to get into Kite Surfing more seriously, as well as study Hindi. It's only country in Africa that is predominantly Hindu. I'd like meet individuals Deaf individuals and potentially start an English for the Deaf program, similar to how I've done in Brazil: English for Deaf Brazilians.
I intend to continue infusing Mindfulness and Breathing practicing into my work, as I know this makes me a better teacher and more focused. It also gives kids and other teachers the skills to feel more empowered about their future destiny. I'd also like to infuse music in my teacher in a more substantial way, be it rapping or singing or using my Kora. We must see how to use our skills in the different environments we find ourselves.
I leave in a little less than 10 days, so there is still much to plan and ponder about of course. But one thing for sure that I know, that it'll be warmer then a winter in New York:-)
