I had a wonderful weekend recently at Kunselling – my first time there and my first ever Vajra dance workshop.
The farmhouse was charming, cosy and peaceful. Rose cooked lovely healthy meals and worked so hard as did Stephie, the whole time looking after us all and making the whole thing run smoothly. Well done ladies – you are both stars!
Our teacher was a great and patient instructor and a graceful dancer. I absolutely loved the whole experience and look forward to joining more Vajra dance workshops for beginners as soon as possible.
It was also lovely to meet members of the Community, everyone was so friendly and welcoming and it was really nice to do Gana Puja together too. The Gonpa has such a lovely feel, it is very sympathetically designed within a traditional farm building and full of light…
I hope to meet you on the Mandala again and rejoice in the good fortune that has led me to discover such a beautiful practice. With heart felt thanks to Namkai Norbu Rinpoche for sharing this precious gift…
