Feel free to send us your own reflections at staff tadias. I have known him for more than 12 years and he has taught me, trained me, supported me like a father would a son.

We kept in touch since then and got to hang out again in when he came back to California to visit an Ethiopian that was imprisoned. Afterwards we went to Yoga Mandala in Berkeley for their 1st anniversary yoga session which was my first ever yoga class!! After that day I was a regular student at that studio till I left the Bay Area and have been hooked on yoga ever since!
Fast forward a few years and I was living in Addis for a couple of years and had the honor to help Don with administrative staff — organizing meetings, meet and greet events etc. I also had the privilege to organize a meeting for him with Gash Mesfin Prof.
Mesfinwho had also been recently released from prison. It was an awesome opportunity for me to sit amongst these two giants and listen-in to their conversation, debate and old stories. Interestingly I found out that my Dad was an undergrad student at AAU when Don first came to Ethiopia and was one of the people that taught him Amharic.
Don is a true sensei in the whole sense of the word!!
