I already organised meditation workshops on a regular basis, but this one was special. After the devastating earthquake in Nepal in 2015, I started a fundraiser to raise money for the people that were without homes and food. Nepal has a special place in my heart. It is not only the place I started meditating, I also visited it several times for volunteer work.
Also it is where my ‘Nepalese family’ lives and I stay whenever I am there. They made sure the money we collected over the three meditation workshops (over a 1000 euros) was given to the people in need in a small village just above capital Kathmandu, without interference of organisations where the people that work there have to be paid as well. I am still thankful for the over 30 people that joined the workshops that day and contributed so generously.
