The region includes the people of Asia Pacific including Thailand, Vietnam, Cambodia, Malaysia, Singapore, Hong Kong, China, Taiwan, Australia, Sri Lanka, Myanmar, Nepal, Bhutan, Phillipines, Indonesia, India, Israel.
In 2001 I started teaching, with the goal of building and serving the community in the Asia Pacific region. It has been based on mission and seva. From developing festivals, to training teachers, to training trainers, to mentoring trainers who became lead trainers. We have trained over 800 teachers in the region and teacher trainings in 8 or more countries.
Our team in Cambodia developed programs to support and teach HIV orphans, both small children and teenagers. For more than 3 years we funded a project to support the Kuraburi children and their families, orphans of the Tsunami in Thailand. Phra Mongkut Hospital, Bangkok, is a seva project for drug rehabilitation. In 2010 we initiated programs for women refugees in Sydney. Many of the women came from prostitution and drug abuse. This project is still operating. • Myanmar • In 2012 we gave a grant to develop the teachings. A small teaching team visited 5 times, and taught to community groups and NGO clients. We introduced Kundalini Yoga to recovering alcoholics and drug addicts at Phra Monkut Hospital, a Thai Military Hospital in Bangkok.
