Natalia Zubchenko: Associate of the International Roerich Memorial Trust in the Himalayas in 2019-2022. He lives in the Himalayan valley of Kulu, in the city of Manali.
“The idea behind our travels is that we are in no hurry to go anywhere. The Himalayas have now become a place of finding new meanings. To catch and understand them, you need to take time for yourself and with yourself. I would love for those who have lost themselves in the world, lost their meanings and hopes, to come here and see that it is possible to be happy in different ways. The usual patterns of behavior don’t work here and you’ll have to find new ones with which to return home strong and perhaps happy.”
