Meet Your Instructor

Padma, Amritapuri

Aum Namah Shivaya,
Dear friends,

With a heart full of gratitude, I would like to share my journey into natural dyeing with you. I have been working in the textile department in Amritapuri since 2012. Natural dyeing came to me and opened up a world of beauty and wonder. Growing our own plants helped me deepen my connection with the land and return to my ancient roots and a love for the earth. Rejoining with this cycle of life, from seeding to tending to harvesting to dyeing to stitching and finally to wearing, reminds us how we once lived and can live again.

Dyeing with plants is an incredible art form. It’s a way to put forth our love and efforts to restore harmony back to the earth. We see that any small effort that is made to help to reduce the effects of pollution in the world today can go a long way. This is a devotional creative approach to natural dyeing, with the hope of using it as a sadhana to deepen our bond to the divine.

With love,
Padma
