Art of Compassion


Wesley is home from L.A., home from college. She is done with school! Now the fun begins. She and two school mates are about to begin their journey into documentary filmmaking. Her passport has arrived, her letter from Drepung monastery is in order. Now to get some money coming in to fund this baby! They have received acknowledgment of a fiscal sponsor, they are working with the monastery on necessary access, getting all the political correctness in order. Learning more and more every day.


A new group of monks arrived in Chapel Hill this week for the Sacred Arts Tour. I am preparing lunch for them this week. Yesterday Gerry and I took food to their hotel and met them for the first time. It is quite an experience being around monks. A feeling of peace and happiness just settles over you. They are the kindest human beings on this planet. I hope it is contagious!

This is so exciting. I love learning about Wes’ progress on this idea, I’m looking forward to seeing it completed but I’m also enjoying the journey. It looks like you all are.

I am so impressed! I am sending good energy for receiving the funding they need for this work.

Hey Lori, it is exciting to watch, a little nervous with trying to let her do it on her own, like teaching your child to ride a bike, yikes! Glad you are enjoying the journey too!
Michele, thanks for the good energy, there is a lot of it coming her way!
