MY FASTING EXPERIENCE BEFORE CHRISMAST

2017-07-20T11:52:40+00:00

When Miss Hang invited me to come and visit her and her students at Hama village I didn’t know what to expect. Ideas appeared in my imagination from the descriptions given me from Miss Hang – vague notions of meditation, isolation, and an intimacy with nature.   When I arrived in the early evening on Christmas Eve to Hama Village after a splendid 6 hour bus trip from Ho Chi Minh City, my imagination and hopes were surpassed with the beautiful reality of my surroundings.   I was greeted by Peter (Loc) at the road as the sun was low in the sky and he [...]

WHAT IS IMPORTANT TO YOU?

By Sam Nunez After driving the whole Christmas day and night, I arrived, cold and in low spirits to what would become one of the most special places on earth.

Ms. Hang, the firey type of gal, started this school two months ago for Vietnamese students to learn English.

CẢM NHẬN TRÊN ĐƯỜNG VỀ TỪ ĐĂK NÔNG

Mrs. Huyen and her family Cảm giác hiện tại trong tôi lúc này đây là một sự lưu luyến và nhớ nhung! Cái tình cảm thân thương, gần gũi của các bạn ở Hama làm tôi chẳng muốn ra về chút nào dù tôi mới chỉ đến đây chưa đầy 24 tiếng. Cái không khí trong lành, yên tịnh nơi đây làm tôi thực sự được hưởng thụ giây phút của hiện tại. Chưa bao giờ tôi được đi dạo ở một nơi hoang vắng vào một đêm trăng tròn và đẹp đến thế; chưa bao giờ tôi được [...]
