Community & Friendship’s Delight

Here is a video collage of friends sharing on the topic of community. This video was recorded at Deer Park Monastery during our recent retreat for members and aspirants to the Order of Interbeing, Turning Outward with Inward Stability.

David Nelson filmed and edited this 7 minute video. These are Davids words: A diverse collection of friends took a moment to share a beautiful portrait of the retreat and what true community is about. I’m touched by their personal expressions of how crucial community is to our most basic well being and feelings of connection. Their intention is to help others feel welcomed and welcoming into a community, while helping others build or strengthen their own.

  2. Thank you David for yet another inspiring video. As always you capture the look-feel-soul of Deer Park and of the beautiful community of people who gather there. Oh and I noticed that Br. Phap De made an appearance 🙂 For sure he was there in spirit.
