I asked a friend. Why do you want to live in Totnes and South Devon, England?
A Dharma friend moved from southern France to Totnes in south Devon, England at the beginning of the year. For several years, he spent some months living in a lovely Dharma centre in France and some months a year in India. I have lived in Totnes for 30 years.
Why would he want to move to Totnes and south Devon? What does south Devon have to offer?
