Don’t miss Ellie’s interactive talk with photographs and video clips about her debut novel inspired by a solo journey to Himalayan villages, farms and jungles of Bhutan, Nepal, and Tibet. Her story combines personal lessons, adventure, travel, growth, and humor. Seeking to experience simplicity and contentment in the “Happiest Place on Earth”, Dias struggles to jettison her Western ways while lugging a 95-pound suitcase of bare necessities. Everything that could go wrong on her spiritual journey did. Left alone atop an elephant in the jungle to difficulties with the Chinese authorities, each day became one long trek through a reality that was mired in the depths of a cosmic education in Murphy’s Law. Her story also reveals the mysticism and pristine nature of the Himalayas, its diverse landscape, remote monasteries and the rich spiritual beliefs and practices of its people that permeates every aspect of their lives.
