Hi! My name is Grace Talley and I live in New York (Harlem) but am originally from Oakland, California. I love to paint, draw, sing, arrange music, cook, and sew, and one of my favorite foods is grilled cheese with ham and caremelized onions. I chose this program because I am super interested in Budddhism and Nepalese traditions/cuisine (and I have a number of friends from Nepal). I am probably most excited for the meditation retreat, though everything seems super fun. I can’t wait to see you all there!
