Session #5 Friday May 15

Happy to have had a great turn out for the 4th NyingmaNet session on May 8. The session featured voices from the next generation of community members, including interviews featuring Ignacio Ercole and Amira-Sade Moodie, participants in the Mindful Living Program, based at Mangalam Center, Berkeley and Charlotte van Leeuwen who initiated classes for young adults in the Amsterdam Nyingma Center. Adrian Roman, one of the organizers of the Mindful Living program led a practice based on Full Presence Mindfulness.
