Vedic chanting teacher training – Back to business in Piesendorf
On friday, Nov 16th, the second module of the Vedic Chanting Teacher Training course will commence. To me seeing the old patterns of KHYF and the students, it feels like things are sliding back to a comfortable spot where everyone benefits and no one looses, except the women who are hurt very badly.
KHYF is back in business and this will be the first course since September. I hear that the last time there were two teachers and this time there will be only one.
Fredrike, owner of the hotel and hostel where all the courses have been conducted. She is also a long time member of Kausthub’s sanga. One can say with much confidence that most of the events reported so far and many more that are not reported, occurred there in her place. She was apparently even upset with the girls who went to the police saying “How could you”.
As for the students, it seems to be a bag of mixed feelings. The conflict between the desire to learn and the discomfort of not knowing how to process what they have read and heard so far about what happened. Some say “I will go there and see how it feels”, “I will decide after this module whether I continue”. I am not sure how it is with the students who used to get a scholarship from Kausthub to attend the courses. One of those was in the group in Piesendorf when for the first time a few women stood up for themselves in front of their class in September.
