Louis Martinie' spent 2000 to 2001 in Bloomington, IN, home of the Tibetan Cultural Center, on sabbatical to study how the Tibetans taught kindness to their children. After Hurricane Katrina, he refugeed in Bloomington for 2 years. During these times he developed an understanding of possible relationships between Tibetan Buddhism and New Orleans Voodoo. Special emphasis will be placed on the practices of taking refuge, and methods of making offerings.
