      The Art of Being Human Retreat Weekend

    Well Ginny I continue to breathe in and to celebrate the art of my being human...such a delightful experience to receive the teachings from you and with you and be in the company of a sangha that knows compassion. I am most grateful of the letting go of levels...seeing with fresh eyes...hearing with fresh ears...being with an open heart... I heard you and I celebrate my being human. I heard you and I joy in the community that gathered to take in the teachings and to share experiences...we all heard each made it a place of gratitude for simply being alive and having the opportunity to live being human...Breathe in and touch what ever is happening...let go...release...breathe in and touch what is going on and know the sacred that is the art of my being human...Thank you very much. Very honoured that we crossed paths and I wish you well...May you always know the Sky Dancer in yourself and continue to offer the teachings...Lady Yeshe Tsogyel was smiling on us... Thank you..

      The Art of Being Human Retreat Weekend

    Spacious Centre full of Light and welcoming, a friendly community. It was the second time I signed up for this weekend retreat and it was simply marvelous. Breathing...let go of levels, let go of expectations and simply listen to a wise lady laugh and share her joy of living the teachings. Breathe...touch and let go... Simple sacred is all life and it is all joy and the teachings are there to help us simply be the basic goodness that we are...not a self improvement weekend...the art of being human...a practice that brings it all in...practice...a life long experience... In and and and out... Lady Yeshe Tsogyel gracing the Shrine Room. A community, a sangha that lives its potential... My potential...I identify with Lady Yeshe Tsogyel and I see her in all the participants and the teachers around me and in me... In our own way we are all Sky Dancers... oh and the food was good too. The centre a beautiful spot to meet oneself... The neighbours sing and the doors are open. Acceptance at its best...The river is indeed flowing and the drums beat and we practice the art of being human within the Stanley Street sounds... I feel gratitude and I feel blessed. Thank you very much one and all.

      Kookenay Shambhala Meditation Centre

    I showed up for the opening of the newly renovated Kootenay Shamhala Meditation Centre. It was my first time in Nelson and I honestly didn't know what to think. When I stepped in the door I was greeted warmly by one of the members and invited into the centre. All in all It's a fantastic space, a really wonderful place all around. Whether you're new to meditation or are looking to connect with other members of the community, the Kootenay Shambhala Meditation Centre offers everything you'd ever want in a community meditation center.

      A kind and cheerful nature

    Oh my gosh, I love Ginny! So genuine and down to earth. I really appreciated how she shared the teachings simply, authentically, and with the warmest sense of humour. Her kind and cheerful presence made it easy to be gentle with myself, my thoughts, and to just simply be with my experience. Thanks Ginny! I look forward to participating in another retreat with you. <3
