Oct 20, 2015: TRE with the Village Men

TRE with the village men

The villagers are working really hard. Since the earthquake, the main trekking path has vanished and now they are getting on to repair whatever they can in order to be able access other settlements. That is the priority even before rebuilding their houses. Unless the path is reconnected, no materials can be transported to their settlement. The earthquake also destroyed the mobile tower. Hence there is no way for the valley communities to communicate with each other on both sides of the valley except by walking for a few hours.

When we asked the question, “When can you come to do TRE?”, the men said “6 a.m!” and the women said “9 p.m!” OK, I will do this whenever they can be available.

The men gathered at the base camp just after 6 a.m. They had no idea what this exercise was about. But they came trusting that it was somehow good for their body and mind. Many of them complained about back and knee pains. Also they were still scared of aftershocks especially at night.

I did not explain too much about the theory but just started the exercise. They were shy at the beginning and giggling to each other. Their wives were laughing out loud, looking at their husbands doing unusual postures in a wobbly manner.

A few minutes after they all lay down on the ground, suddenly the silence took place. I loved that moment when peoples’ nervous systems suddenly calm down and the parasympathetic nervous system kicks in. Everyone was into their own shaking although some were surprised by the automatic tremor of their body.

I stood back and observed them from a small distance. The sun started coming out and bold outlines of the Himalayan mountains were lightened up by the rising sun.

After the exercise, everyone said their bodies became very light. They were still a bit puzzled by why their body shook, but they were happy that they felt better anyhow. Then they went off to face a long day working at the bottom of the valley in order to build a bridge made of logs. All communities work together. They have not the slightest expectation that their government might do something for them. They do what they can do and just get on with their lives. I saw the true nature of “human resilience” at Tsum Valley.

    Today, while I was at work, my cousin stole my iPad and tested to
    see if it can survive a thirty foot drop, just so she can be a youtube
    sensation. My apple ipad is now broken and she
    has 83 views. I know this is completely off topic but I
    had to share it with someone!
