The first time I went to Samaya to deliver an archery session, a staff member showed me a gorgeous spot to work.
She also made it clear that the venue highly appreciated respect and dignity in general, and especially towards this spot, because of its history. No one ever came back to that conversation, but all kinds of details in the Samaya’s hosting underline this respect for the environment.
The other week I was at Samaya again, with one of my archery workshops. This time with my new, electrical car.
I searched for a charging point, but I couldn’t find one. And in general they do hit the eye, with their futuristic led-lights. With little hope I asked after it at the reception. They pointed me to an old wall. There they had installed two modern sockets on the old wall of the monastery: functional, unobtrusive, fitting in the environment.
I like that: no fuss, highly effective.
