We migrated!

When members of our sangha started to chuckle about the “news” on our previous site, “news” dating back more than a year, it became clear that we have to move forward into a new age of web technology. That’s why migrated the content to WordPress, a commonly used and free content management system for web sites.

From now on updates are much easier to do – no more need for software on everyone’s computer, just a web browser will do! Please check back frequently, we’ll be updating with new vigor and keep you posted about what has happend and what will happen with this sangha.
