Through the very generous offer of a helicopter trip to our precious valley, Tulku Ogyen Nyima (Minya Tulku Rinpoche) – along with Ian & Damien D. Jampa – spent the day at our centre.

After some breakfast, we all walked to Temple Hill and then to Tikologo – Environmental Project, our permaculture site. From there, we walked to our retreat area in Tara’s Valley. Then we had some much needed lunch that was followed by a smoke puja to make peace with all the energies in the area.
