Since many of our Teacher Training courses are located in Dharamshala, which is the home town to the Dalai Lama and many Tibetan refugees, we are eager to share some of the Tibetan art and culture with our students. Today we paid a visit to the Norbulingka Institute which is an institute dedicated to preserving Tibetan culture, art and literature. Beautifully located just half an hour drive from our center and surrounded by a lot of greenery. Other than a temple to meditate, a garden with many flowers and small streams, and an outstanding restaurant, it has many workplaces were the art of painting, sculpturing and weaving are being passed on from generation to generation
