My name is Gurudatta and I need help in making a life changing move back to my home country.
In 2011 I left the USA with nothing but a backpack, a vivid imagination and one way ticket. Absent of any destination or intention other than to explore and discover the beauty of the world I tread forward on a barren path to sights unseen. Using social media to share my travels and insights I started to attract a growing following. As I continued to share my life online I received several invitations to facilitate retreats, meditations and spiritual gatherings all over the world. What initially started as an invitation for self-discovery turned into an amazing adventure that spanned across the earth in over 21 countries across 4 continents.
As my inner compass compelled it was pointed towards a country I have never been to before. Arriving in an uncharted territory, Croatia offered a new potential to learn about a different culture and way of life. Celebrating uncertainty to its fullest I found myself attracted to a beautiful woman from Dalmatia. Welcoming the mystery of our union we rose together in a loving relationship. In the embrace of our heartfelt connection we consciously chose to reflect and share the intention of creating a child together. In 2017 we were blessed to welcome our beautiful daughter into the world and into our lives.
From being a solo world traveler to a father living in a foreign country I was faced with many challenges that needed to be overcome. There was the language barrier, accommodating to the social system and forging through the complicated government bureaucracy.
After 4 years of maintaining a life in Croatia I have exhausted every potential to continue living in this country. With the consideration of several factors including the constant state of corruption and the distribution of unlivable wages I am faced with a disconcerting decision. After careful contemplation I have no other alternatives available but to move back to the States so that I can acquire the necessary resources for my daughters well being and that of my own. After 8 years as a world traveler my journey has now come full circle to return back to my home country.
In this fundraising campaign I am asking for your help to manifest this transition so that I may close this chapter and open a new one in my life story.
