Felix Meurders and Erica Terpstra in Ladakh Festival Haarlem
Two celebrities are committed to nuns in Ladakh
Over eighty people came to the eighth Ladakh festival Sunday, October 24th was held in Haarlem. The day opened with inspiring interviews with Felix Meurders held two employees of the DFLN: Marlies Bosch and Anie Jaartsveld. But, he said Meurders, Terpstra if you see sitting in the front row and you know she is patron of the foundation, then you MUST also add a couple of questions about her relationship with DFLN.
Marlies Bosch was questioned about the start of the DFLN in 2003 and the change in the situation of nuns ever since. Meurders bevroeg then Aniek Jaartsveld on its findings during the disaster in which she was present. Terpstra Then came the word that was extensively revealed how thrilled she was that she may have to host the Dalai Lama during his visits to the Netherlands. They will interview him in January for her series 'world leaders', which they currently work.
Meurders is capable of humor to discuss experiences of the people he interviews. He did so based on his experience: he was traveling in Ladakh in 2003, and he never looks at the fact that some of the red-dressed, bald people on the street sometimes nuns could be.
A great start to a wonderful day. Myra de Rooy gave a presentation on the general cultural and historical backgrounds of Ladakh, and wove them the story of the nuns and their convents. After the lunch break gave Nel de Jong, the Dutch only Tibetan doctor, explain the process and methods of Tibetan medicine and went while in the trauma after the disaster in Ladakh for the people there need. The movie "Autumn in the Himalayas, of Malgorzata Skiba, containing the wonderful story of the elderly nuns in a convent Nyerma who were supported by the DFLN, was again well received. Anie Jaartsveld told at length about what volunteering in Ladakh and how they and the aftermath of the disaster at first hand have experienced.
Wilka Zelders 'presentation:' the art of coherent energy, "concluded with the showing of two movies with her artwork created from that energy.
Anja Schutte and Paulina Hartman, the two hostesses who the festival organized, have succeeded in a wonderful, warm place to find where the pictures of the nuns harmonized with the religious paintings and holy images of the former Roman Catholic chapel. Thanks to everyone who was present in Haarlem.
