A weekend with more than 1.000 people attending the lectures by Lama Ole Nydahl obviously needs more than a bit of preparation and constant action “behind the scenes” – here’s just some of our unsung heroes making it all possible.
It all started weeks before with the coordinators meeting several times to prepare for the weekend. Planning the cooking, doing the grocery ordering and shopping, building up a big extra tent for the shoes and baggage, shuttling up and down the EC hill for days, organizing the flow of people for entering and exiting the gompa and queuing for food, taking care to keep everything clean all over the place, registering hundreds of friends for the event, selling things and giving information in the Dharma shop, taking pictures for this blog and the EC Facebook page, serving friends food, coffee and drinks almost around the clock… just to name a few.
Big thanks to the team and to all the wonderful guests who offered to take over a mini-job or two at the event’s job center – you are just wonderful!!
PS:: Oh, and then there was some very secret and even more joyful preparation going on as well – rehearsing the dance for the flash mob on Sunday, which the EC team performed as a surprise to thank all the visitors with for the great time we had with them once again!
