Zenpeacemakers: Bearing Witness at Standing Rock with Ven Pannavati

We received this message today from our dear teacher and friend, Zen Peacemaker Venerable Pannavati, leader of Heartwood Refuge: "From Sept 17-24 we are taking a trip to camp with the indigenous people and their supporters on Sioux land at Standing Rock Dakota Access Pipeline Opposition. In the tradition of Bernie Glassman and our Zen Peacemaker order, we "show up"; willing to listen deeply - not thinking "we" know what "they" need. Otherwise, we are not present to help. This is Bearing Witness 6...We are leaving from Heartwood Refuge, Hendersonville, North Carolina on Saturday, September 17th. PLEASE LET US KNOW BY WEDNESDAY, SEPT 14TH by signing up at the link. We can pick you up at any point along the way." Questions please email [email protected]

You can donate support to Venerable Pannavati and her efforts by texting "StandingRock" to 41444 or send a check to Treasure Human Life with memo:Standing Rock" at Heartwood Refuge, 159 Osceola Rd. Hendersonville, NC 28739. All extra funds will go directly to the Sioux tribe.
