Ven. Dr. Pannavati

Ven. Pannavati, a former Christian pastor, is now a Buddhist monk ordained in the Theravada and Chan traditions. She is the co-founder of the Embracing Simplicity Hermitage and The Heartwood Refuge, both in Hendersonville, NC. Pannavati has dedicated her life to advocating for social justice, the homeless, sick and disenfranchised, those who are marginalized, abused, neglected and unloved. She believes it is fine to sit in temples and meditate and pray when things are good; when they are not, we are compelled to get off our pillows and do something. She lives the Dhamma.
