Dear Jean-Claude....light and mischievous smile, prancing mind. Changed the world of theater by his creativity. He lent his magical house in Charlemont, western Ma., to Trungpa Rinpoche to do his first retreat in the USA in 1973 (check date please). I was lucky enough to be invited by Rinpoche to join him and a gang of Vajradhatu guys for some days. Rinpoche loved the house and the porch and the melting snow and the purity of the land and JC's home. He sat at the dining room table and wrote a play. He hung out on the porch to film the damp leaves and drops of water. He returned another year. Thank you Jean-Claude for sharing Shantigar with Rinpoche, and later with many creative and seeking people. Your contributions will continue your legacy.
