THE STORY:

Many of you know my commitment to autism, as well as children of the world. I am traveling in September to support the people of the Humla Valley of Nepal, as well as teach future students about the interconnectedness of the world, the need for compassion and the power of the human spirit. The Humla Valley of Nepal is one of the most remote and sacred places on earth. Located on the border of Tibet, Humla is in the midst of the spectacular Himalayan mountain range; secluded from modern life, it remains home to the ancient spiritual and pre-Buddhist culture of Bon. However, due in part to this isolation, the Humli people confront serious challenges in accessing health care and education. Tempa Lama and Geshe Tsewang both natives of Humla, will support the group through teachings and meditation practices on compassion from the Bon spiritual teachings of wisdom and love. This will offer the practitioner an opportunity for spiritual renewal and growth. As wisdom and compassion are shared human aspirations, these teachings offer support to practitioners and volunteers of all beliefs. By deepening the connection with our inner wisdom as practitioners, we will have more compassion and inner strength for the patients we will be treating in these village clinics.

"When people choose to practice, integrate, and embody gratitude, the cumulative force that is generated can help create the kind of world we all hope for and desire, for ourselves and for future generations." -Heidi Harding, Co-founder of Humla Fund

We believe that traditional medicine and education is effective and sustainable for the environment and culture in Humla. This is why Humla Fund’s clinics and projects aim towards strengthening the native healing traditions and occur side by side. Our goal is to provide greater access to health care and education and preserve the traditional healing practices that are at risk of being lost as Humla slowly modernizes. With respect and commitment for preserving this healing tradition, Humla Fund makes donations to each of the villages we visit to rebuild the temples and strengthen the native healing traditions and festivals.
