Dana for Pine Lake Camp
Back in April, when we were just getting used to staying home, we sent you an invitation to offer dana to Holy Wisdom Monastery and St. Anthony Spirituality Center, where we had been scheduled to hold retreats earlier this year. Your generosity in response to that call was inspiring. We were able to make gifts to those two centers that we are confident made a difference to them during this period of fiscal challenge.
We now would like to offer you a similar opportunity to give dana to another of our longtime retreat centers, Pine Lake United Methodist Camp in Westfield, WI. We had been scheduled to hold our October retreat with Jan Cittasubha Sheppard there. Fortunately, we were able to hold this retreat very successfully in an online format.
In past years, we have appreciated Pine Lake’s reliable spiritual friendship and their empathic support of our unusual, silent-retreat ways. We missed Pine Lake’s hospitality and its exceptionally beautiful peacefulness this fall.
Pine Lake operates on a very lean budget. In the midst of multiplying and deepening financial need for all kinds of individuals and organizations, we want to offer you this opportunity to contribute toward a group donation to help Pine Lake. If giving dana to Pine Lake feels like it would be a skillful component of your practice, please use this link to the Madison Vipassana PayPal account to contribute by credit or debit card or via PayPal transfer. Please make your donation by Sunday, December 6, 2020. We will make the group donation shortly thereafter.
In appreciation of your presence and practice,
The Madison Vipassana Board
