Vicki Alexis Genson met Chögyam Trungpa in March of 1971 and at his suggestion, left Los Angeles and moved to Boulder in August of 1972. For many years, Vicki worked as a video producer for the Cable industry. As a community access coordinator, she taught video workshops to the public. Her independent work has been shown at festivals and at the American Film Institute. Dharma-related projects include Kobun Chino: Eight Calligraphies, and Devotion, an elegy for the late Ugyen Shenpen. DVDs are on sale through the Konchock Foundation.
Gently, but with great conviction, the brush would descend to the paper and make its first dot. Often Rinpoche would pause the brush on this first mark, as if waiting for the calligraphy to be born from its seed.
