Summary In a remote nomadic region of Eastern Tibet, 3000 women practice an ancient yogic tradition of Tibetan Buddhism. Despite near extinction during the destruction of the Cultural Revolution, these remarkable spiritual practitioners have emerged to rebuild their monasteries by hand... stone by stone. In 2005, a small group of western women Buddhists travelled to Nangchen to meet the nuns. Blessings tells the story of this extraordinary journey.
