Living in community means everything has to get passed through committees and assemblies. Today we had a special meeting to validate the departure of all of us who intend to take the week off here and go to Nepal. So...it's official!
We're a team of five, representing the Lama House, temple, communications, web and rituals departments. We'll all be volunteering our time for the event while we're there, in addition to attending as disciples. Once you become a volunteer at a Buddhist center, you're in for life, wherever you go. :)
We'll pile into a car in the morning on Saturday the 26th to head to Paris, and catch a flight in the evening that lands us in Kathmandu on the morning of the 27th.
