Day after I arrived a public talk on Peaceful Living, Peaceful Dying. Around 60 people attended. Then we had a wonderful retreat with around 35 people. The weather was really strange, threatening rain constantly but it held back except for a small shower, so we experienced fog instead! The retreat finished with a long life puja offered to me, as it is my life obstacle year astrologically, and I think it was a moving experience for many. Misha even composed a long life prayer and name mantra for me. It was humbling how much love and care they put into the occasion. Thank you Moscow and especially Misha, Eugene and Yana. Yesterday and today, Reiki 2 and tomorrow Reiki 1, finishing on Thursday then on to the airport and Delhi then Kathmandu to Pokhara for Choeding Rinpoche's long life puja.

After a very comfortable coach ride from Riga to Lithuania, I taught The Art of Happiness on Friday evening then Saturday and Sunday, Healing Disturbing Emotions and Sunday evening we meditated on Tara. For the first time in history, the 21 Taras were recited in Lithuanian! Today I am flying from Vilnius to Moscow and we have a full programme until the long life puja in Pokhara for Choeding Rinpoche.
