Some of that footage is included in later films for which she shot additional footage for and served as co-producer. (Jewel Mountain and The Spirit of Tibet.) In 1980 she participated in the first three-year Nyingma retreat in Dordogne, France. Over the years she has worked extensively with Matthieu Ricard and his humanitarian organization.
