Welcome to Bodhi Leaf, a blog dedicated to reflections on the Dharma and announcements about Dharma events in the Ottawa region.

My name is André Vellino. I am a disciple of Thich Nhat Hanh (“Thay”) and my Twitter handle (@chan_daolu) is the Dharma name he gave me when I undertook the 14 Mindfulness trainings in 2002. Chan Dao Lu means “True Companion on  the Path”. I received the Lamp Transmission from Thay in 2014 in Plum Village.

    I am writing to share a 30 second introductory video to my new book entitled “Boundless Intimacy.” To view my video, just click this YouTube link: https://youtu.be/QWRQ4vobk20

    If my video resonates with your heart and the still wisdoming of your body core, I would appreciate you mentioning the availability of the book and my WordPress author page at ZenIntimacy.Com.
