2013 marks thirty years of existence for the Cultural Center Batahola Norte. The group of Friends of Batahola (U.S.-based partner non-profit) who visit every year were able to join the community here for a great time of celebration, remembering, and dreaming. In addition to visiting classes, an exchange with Center youth, free acupuncture given to staff, and meetings, the FOB group participated in a spiritual retreat with Center staff.
It is a joy to meet these people, and see a truly supportive and balanced sister-relationship between the Center and the FOB in the U.S.
Here is a small peak into a part of Sunday’s retreat with FOB and staff (a dynamic game, “Monkeys and Cages”…a good moment of silliness)
