Bye bye Bhutan

The 4th and the 5th king and the young royal couple Their pictures are in every temple, office, school, home:) They truly are loved:)

My last day in Bhutan...:).... Until I come back:)

I joined the GNH team today on one of their focus group sessions in a Thimpu college with a group of 20 young students.

It was an inspiring experience for me!

Until now Tho and his team had mainly interviewed and worked with leaders of government and civil society but now they start "Focus Groups" of "ordinary" people, 

It was a good start with a group of young people between 14-17 of age.

The questions were the same:

How do you understand GNH

How does it affect your life, your family, your society

What are the opportunities, positive aspects

What are the challeges, the difficulties

What do you expect of the GNH Center

What programs would you like to join there

Dr Tho and Tandin guided these sessions in a very dynamic and joyful way,

I was impressed by the strong willingness to do good of all these youngsters, 

Some were so wise

Their concern for the environment, the society, the respect of traditions and their great love for their king and leaders was touching!

Of course they also see some tensions between modernity/tradition/ and challenges for GNH to be implemented,

Many mentioned meditation and mindfulness to guide them to HAPPINESS

It was an inspiring moment:)

I have to pack my suitcase now:)

Much love

You look like your dad more than your Italian mum!
By the way, I once used to sit on that concrete bench where you were sitting at Wat Pho!
