Support the Kulungile Project
In 2009 Abegail Ntleko was awarded the ‘Unsung Hero Award’ from His Holiness the Dalai Lama in San Francisco. This was to acknowledge her selfless work over a period of 50+ years, particularly her work in deeply impoverished rural communities.
Sister Abegail is trained as a nursing sister and became a licensed Anglican lay minister in 1989. She has worked tirelessly to advocate for those who were overwhelmed by HIV/Aids and has personally adopted and fostered over 30 orphans. She started a very successful orphanage in 2002 called Clouds of Hope in KwaZulu which houses about 60 - 80 children. Since then she has gone on to found another small home for vulnerable children called Kulungile.

Conflict and Freedom with Gregory Kramer, Gina Sharpe May 10–16, 2013
This Retreat is co-sponsored by NYI.
The upcoming Insight Dialogue retreat, Awakening Together: Conflict and Freedom, led by Gregory Kramer and Gina Sharpe, will bring together meditation community leaders, teachers and seasoned practitioners from the traditional and relational Vipassana communities. The retreat is designed to introduce a relational Vipassana practice and help us understand, through experience, how this can support individuals and communities to become more aware and fully present with one another to work through conflict, stress and difficult situations. It is a powerful opportunity to link wisdom and compassion practices.
