PodCast – Nilima Bhat – Discovering Shakti through Dance and Healing
I’ve known Nilima Bhat since I was 17, when I was living in India. She is one of those people who light up a room, a stage and the world they live in with their presence. She is the most talented, versatile and joyful dancers I know. Over the years I have fond memories of learning and performing various Indian folk dances and tableaus with her, choreographed to exquisite perfection by her. In the patchy tapestry of memories that is my life, times spent with her stand out bright, colourful and filled with joy.
Today I am sharing the conversation she and I had for my podcast iLoOP. It is Nilima’s journey from the age of about 17, the point in her life where a particular failure proved to be a catalytic event for her. It is magical how the dots all connect so beautifully and we can make sense of her hero’s journey to who she is today, what lights her up from within and how she’s making a difference in the world.
