Sister Gina and the other sisters were beautiful women and made me feel for the first time I would like to see Thich Nhat Hanh because he seemed to treat his sisters so well. He even said once that he was their mother as well as their father.

Something changed in this retreat. I got in touch with some of my vulnerability during one of Sr. Jina's talks but it was good. I could feel something change. I think too it was quite a big thing having some sort of spiritual retreat or weekend with women leading it. That was a first for me. Men always led anything like this before. I was impressed.
