India Supera, founder, visionary, long-time executive director of the Feathered Pipe Foundation, and inspiration to so many passed away after a brave battle with liver cancer on October 29, 2019. In the aftermath, the out-pouring of love and remembrance has been extraordinary. Individuals from all walks of life and from all over the world have reached out to express and show gratitude for the effect India and the Feathered Pipe had on their lives during her life of service.

Celebration of India Supera - Feathered Pipe RanchIt is our deepest desire to host a grand celebration of India’s life during our 45th anniversary here at the Feathered Pipe Ranch. We are inviting all alumni, fellow travelers, and everyone that was touched by India’s life mission and journey, to join us at the Ranch during the week of Fourth of July to celebrate and honor a life very well lived.

Festivities will begin with a benefit concert by dear friend of India, renowned Native American flutist and many-time GRAMMY award nominee R. Carlos Nakai at The Myrna Loy on the evening of July 1, Wednesday. Festivities at the Feathered Pipe Ranch will officially kick off on Thursday, July 2, with Friday and Saturday being the main days of celebration and ceremony. Sunday, July 5, will be simply a day of departure with no other activities. Accommodations will be extremely limited at the Ranch, so dependent upon your RSVP, we will be suggesting and pre-reserving additional lodging in Helena (final reservation and booking will be up to you). We will do our best to shuttle all out-of-town guests who are in need of transport to the Ranch during the celebration. Carpooling is encouraged!

Home share request: Friends in Helena, please let us know if you have extra room(s) and would like to host a Feathered Pipe Friend from out of town during this event.

This event is free but we are encouraging generous donation through the India Supera Memorial Fund to offset expenses incurred for food, accommodations, transportation and event programs. We are requesting that all interested in joining us for the entire event, or even just a day, please RSVP your desire to be present.

ABOUT INDIA SUPERA:

A Life Well Lived: A Celebration of India Supera's LifeIndia left home in her teens for the adventure of foreign travel. After nearly dying in Pakistan, she began a spiritual quest in India and eventually found Satya Sai Baba, who is considered an avatar by millions of people. Receiving the major part of her education and understanding at his feet, she was able to bring those teachings to the Feathered Pipe Foundation to share with others.

In 1975 she co-founded the Holistic Life Foundation which later evolved into the Feathered Pipe Foundation and became one of the first yoga centers in the US which is not guru-based. India was also the president of the Tibetan Children’s Education Foundation (TCEF). She founded TCEF along with Karma Tensum, Executive Director, in order to provide education, housing and support to the children of Tibetan refugees in India.

India was a passionate and vibrant leader inspiring many in their personal spiritual journeys. She was a strong voice for equality of those that are disadvantaged within today’s world, particularly on issues concerning Native America communities and women and children’s rights worldwide. India, along with long-time friend, social activist and author Dr. Jean Shinoda Bolen who has taught at the Feathered Pipe Ranch many times, continued to push for a 5th World Conference on Women right up to India’s passing in October of 2019.
