Besides exploring Vietnam and Cambodia’s beautiful beaches, jungles, and mountains, we will spend part of a day doing a Karma Yoga Project (a yogic path of selfless service) benefiting Mary’s House.
More About James’ Friend Jen And Her Brainchild, Mary’s House
Mary’s House is the creation of Jen Flynn, an American volunteer who lived in Vietnam from 2008-2010. As a long-time supporter and partner of a non-profit called Giving it Back to Kids, Jen longed to provide a safe place for disadvantaged Vietnamese children to be well cared for and receive an education. Her dream was to open a home for such kids in Da Nang and name it after her grandmother, Mary Ciccaglione. Mary had been a loving and powerful influence in Jen’s life, encouraging her to travel, learn, and experience life to the fullest. Jen inspired over a dozen volunteers from around the world as well as friends and family members to fund raise. Within a few months the funding was available to open and operate Mary’s House for its first year, making her dream a reality! Mary’s House opened in January of 2012.
Angkor Wat, in Cambodia, is one of the many beautiful places we will explore on this immersion. Below is a map.
