#FlashbackFriday #FBF This fancy graphic was my first fundraising campaign to get to Nepal back in 2010, just an email attachment to my friends and fam.  A week from today I’ll be on a plane back there for the 7th time! Just a short follow up trip, and the agenda isn’t too different from 5 years ago. #FullCircle #Nepal #ILoveNepal #Karmidanda #NepalEarthquake #InternationalDevelopment #DisasterRecovery #CommunityDriven #Grassroots #LearnToListen #ListenToLearn

A quick view of the #SocialMapping and #GroupDiscussion that went down in lower #Karmidanda today. The same thing happened in middle and upper Karmidanda. 6 hours later voila! We’ve got ourselves a community driven monsoon protection plan. #NepalEarthquake #ParticipatoryDevelopment #ParticipatoryRuralAppraisal #JustGettingStarted #Listen #Empower #Heal #ILoveNepal

Another 7.3 earthquake in Nepal today. We were all scared, but all are safe. Not much more devastation in #Karmidanda, though that’s not true for all of Nepal. This is a pic of a family whose mom was busy delivering her placenta when the quake hit. Mom and baby safe and healthy :) #NepalEarthquake #PartTwo #bhukumpa #enoughalready #giveusabreak #ihateearthquakes #ilovenepal

Meet my friend Gotu Kola, Ghodtapre in Nepali. It’s an herb with a cooling tendency and many uses. It’s known in the west for its ability to regulate the stress and anti-inflammatory hormone cortisol. Here in #rasuwa people drink the juice of the leaf to treat a fever. Some local kids brought this batch to me cause they know how much I love it! #herbnerd #karmidanda #herbalmedicine #naturopathy #globalnaturopath #ilovenepal
