Over the past few weeks, SINI has been collaborating with our Nyingma Centers in Amsterdam and Cologne with retreats and programs led by Khenpo Kunga Dakpa. This collaboration is the fruit and blessings of many years of work on all sides. 

One of our first students of the EDP program was Khenpo Kunga Dakpa, a traditionally trained monastic from Mindrolling. When he started at SINI he could hardly introduce himself in English, having never had any formal exposure to the language, let alone Western cultures. Now, about six years later (with many programs in between), this past month he was able to teach in English directly to our sanghas in Cologne and Amsterdam! This accomplishment, though seemingly small, represents a long-term commitment to study and practice, and we thank you all for being part of this journey!
