Simplicity Embraced

Happy New Year from OM Sanctuary.

The cold, snowy weather of the season is upon us, and on January 18th and 19th in the midst of the cold, OM Sanctuary lived up to its name, providing a warm, Buddha at Breakfastpeaceful place for 16 trainees in a weekend-long Embracing Simplicity retreat. The retreat was led by Ven. Dr. Pannavati and Ven. Pannadipa of Embracing Simplicity Buddhist Hermitage in Hendersonville, NC.

OM Sanctuary was blessed by all the meditation and peace that was exuded from this wonderful group.

Among Ven. Dr. Pannavati’s many good works, she started My Gluten Free Bread Company in 2009 as a project of My Place, Inc. in Hendersonville, NC, to provide employment and training to homeless and disadvantaged youths. The baked goods produced at the bakery can be found at area Ingles and Earthfare grocery stores.Warm Inside, Winter Outside

OM Sanctuary is delighted to host programs such as Embracing Simplicity that align with our charitable mission of providing a space for renewal, integrative lifestyle practices, holistic education, and connection with nature.

Warm your hearts in blessing and breath.
