After a winter of primarily retreat, The Yogini Project is returning to the editing room this late spring to subtitle and produce a series of interviews, mostly with Tibetan yoginis, from our video archives from filming the first round of our film ‘Women On The Path‘.

Interviews featured will be:

* Jetsunma Jamyang Drolma of Pharping
(interviewed the day before her enthronement)

* Ani Bumchang, a cave yogini at Tso Pema
(telling the story of Mandarava)

* Ani Konchog Drolma and Pema Yangki
(Tsoknyi Nangchen nuns from Tsoknyi Gechak Ling in the Kathmandu Valley)

* Ani Gyen Tara at Nagi Gompa

* Lama Shenpen Hookham

* Marcia Dechen Schmidt

* Tsunma Aileen from DGL Nunnery
(Jetsunma Tenzin Palmo’s nunnery)

and… potentially interviews with two of the first Geshemas at Kopan Nunnery in Nepal

**A Go-Fund-Me crowdfundraiser has been launched in early April to support outsource and in-house production costs to our produce timecodes, translations, subtitling, editing and other final post-production work on these interviews that span the Himalayas from the Kathmandu Valley to caves above Tso Pema.

The full interviews will be released to The Yogini Archives and previews of each to our public Yogini Channel at YouTube.  All supporters will receive Yogini Archives access, duration based on level of support.
