What Do You Do When The Life Rafts Are Burning?

Retreat with Venerable Pannavati in Charlottesville, VA
It’s not the “outside” world that needs healing. That is merely a reflection of our own minds. Reconciliation requires an individual fearlessness to move beyond the story in order to create a new reality. The Buddha would often share stories with his closest disciples beginning with “When I was just an unenlightened Bodhisattva….”
This tells us two things:
1) we can aspire to be a bodhisattva even with whatever feelings we are experiencing right now, and
2) that we cultivate ourselves by saving others. This is our true practice. What do you do when the life rafts are burning?
Friday April 12 – 7 pm – 8:30 pm
Saturday April 13 – 9 am – 4 pm
Sunday April 14 – 10:30 am church service at Unity with a sermon by Pannavati
Retreat participants will have the opportunity to give dana, or a generous donation from the heart, to the Venerable Pannavati at the retreat. Dana is separate from the registration fee, which covers rental and operating costs.
There will be light snacks, water, and tea available on Friday and Saturday. Pack your lunch to supplement.
