Thanks for the e-mail and interest in this serious work we are undertaking.
At the moment we are doing initial work in establishing the Foundation’s work in Sichuan. As you are well aware we must enter very sensitively into the mainland.
We will be looking towards TTC1 Graduates, Part 1 Teachers, and the next round of DSN graduates to help facilitate our Trauma Relief Workshop (BWS). Priority will go to people who speak Mandarin. I think it would be in 2 weeks or so.
If you can go onto DSN next week you can then help facilitate the Trauma Relief workshop at a later stage.
We need a steady flow of volunteers who can teach BWS workshop in Sichuan for committed periods.
This is what is needed now:
1. Enroll and participate at next week’s DSN
2. Qualify after completing DSN to help facilitate BWS
3. Get some experience 1 or 2 courses in facilitating BWS
4. Commit a time period to be in Sichuan to help facilitate
The reconstruction of Sichuan is estimated to take 10 years. We have a lot of work to do!
Jai Guru Dev!
