Stand With Sanju: Unraveling the Truth About Child Rug Labor

Where do those beautiful rugs you see in stores come from? Let Sanju explain their origin in her own voice. When Sanju was eleven years old, a broker took her from her home and forced Sanju into child labor. She had to weave knots daily from four in the morning until eight at night. Hungry and tired, Sanju watched as her cut hands become knobby from continuous knot-weaving, and wondered: was this what her life would always be? Two years ago, GoodWeave rescued Sanju. GoodWeave, a nonprofit organization that aims to end child labor in the rug industry, works tirelessly to free and educate hundreds of thousands of enslaved children. To stop child trafficking, GoodWeave encourages buyers to only purchase rugs with the GoodWeave label. Reunited with her parents, Sanju now goes to school, thanks to GoodWeave and people like you.

Dear Friends,

As many of may know, Pema’s upcoming September 26-28 on-campus program at Omega Institute is sold out. But it’s not too late to reserve your seat to watch her weekend live from wherever are you via live stream.

You can watch on your own or you can have your own retreat with others. With the video you can watch all of it or in as many sections as you want; you can play back parts you like or parts you may have missed. You have access to the archive of the live retreat for 60 days (through November 29).

Omega is offering you $10 off the regular price of $79. This fee goes toward offsetting Omega’s technological and staffing expenses associated with the live streaming.

The weekend program will explore our “Basic Goodness.” Basic goodness is about who we fundamentally are and how we feel about ourselves at the core. During this retreat, Pema will explore practices that can help us contact our fundamental goodness even when we are under stress, overwhelmed, and overburdened, or when we feel we’ve failed at something important to us.

More information about the program and instructions on how to register can found – here.

To take advantage of the $10 discount, use code PCFPEMA10 when you register.

Who Fixed The Refrigerator?

We may have all come on different ships, but we’re in the same boat now.

– Martin Luther King, Jr. –

Who Fixed The Refrigerator?

Many years ago, a man’s refrigerator stopped working and he ventured out to find a solution. A few people — the used furniture sales person, somebody at the electrical supply store — shared some tips with him so that in the end, he was able to successfully repair a seemingly mundane problem. Or so he thought. A deeper inquiry of the many apparent and invisible forces that brought about this simple fix is poetically shared in this personal, resounding reminder of our inter-connectedness. { read more }
