I found peace in the mountains of West Virginia

by LC

I’m sure this doesn’t apply to everyone but traveling is my therapy. It’s even better when the destination is as amazingly peaceful as the unincorporated (!) town of New Vrindaban, West Virginia (population of 352, according to the 2010 Census) – a remote community of incredible spiritually in-tune people, about 30 minutes from Wheeling, WV (twitter: @newvrindaban)

That’s a mighty random location for a Floridian-by-way-of-Brazil to visit, you might say – I was privileged to spend a couple of days in this sanctuary to celebrate the wedding of two of my favorite people in the world, my oldest and best friend – my brother – and his beautiful new bride (whose hometown is New Vrindaban).

No cell reception, no loud choppers, ambulances, cop cars or obnoxious drivers. No shoes (barefoot wedding!) no stress. Just bliss. It was the most genuine and touching wedding I’ve ever been to. Enjoy! (I can’t even tell you how much I did!)…
