“Hello Kelsang,

What a fabulous visit we had to the centre today.  My students rarely sit still for that long and to see and hear them interacting and giggling at the lovely sense of humour employed when putting across some simple facts made me very proud. They have all come such a long way in the last few years.

We ladies will most certainly be booking in for a meditation and food session sometime this year

Thank you once again and very best wishes to all work at the centre,
