I hope that the last year has been without obstacles for you, but if not, that you were able to transform them. I also hope that the coming New Year will be one in which your own and others’ good wishes will meet the proper conditions to manifest.
The first year at Karma Changchub Ling (KCCL), Fall River, has been very active and overall pretty successful. We were able to establish ourselves with the help and support of many of our friends. We became a charity, established our daily and monthly schedule, had a great number of wonderful feasts and practice intensives, and several successful evening classes. We also had the honour to spend much time with Ani Migme while caring about her during her final months and passing. We hosted wonderful visits by great teachers like Dzogchen Pönlop Rinpoche, Master Hai Tao and Ani Pema. In brief, we have become firmly established and recognized in the Halifax area community and this will allow us now to progress to a different phase: inviting teachers, focusing on community building, and slowly expanding.
