A letter from Mary Raftery
Dear Sangha Friend,
We are all so relieved that Marlies’ transplant operation last week went well, and that she is on the road to recovery and good health!
I’m so very grateful to Marlies for all that she’s given me—she has given me back my life! That sounds dramatic, but with Marlies’ teachings, counseling, and Presence, I am more awake and alive in my life than ever before, more honoring of my true Self and my needs...and I have a lot more fun!
And, I’m grateful that the transplant has given Marlies new life, and for this chance to be able to give back to her.
With the expenses of the transplant and the recovery time when she cannot work, this is a time when I know I can make a difference. My $1,000 donation to Deep Water Sangha to support her recovery is a unique, joyful and life-affirming opportunity to contribute to Marlies’ well-being in appreciation for the many gifts she’s given me.
I invite you to join me in the true pleasure of giving back.
If you feel moved to give back to Marlies in this way, any amount can help— $10, $50, $100, $500 or whatever you can give— it can help give Marlies the time away from work for her body to mend, and help with costs that insurance does not cover— to help her body make a full recovery and to support her spirit in stepping into this new experience of Presence.
To donate and support Marlies and our Deep Water Sangha by check or Paypal:
Your tax deductible donation helps our whole community—in retreats over the years, I’ve seen Marlies help so many of us, touching each of us, opening our eyes in the deep way we need at that moment.
And, of course, you may know of Brenda, who generously donated her kidney last week as part of the program that gave a match to Marlies. This is the link to donate to Brenda's You Caring Fund: https://www.youcaring.com/brendakruller-998849
Big love and blessings to you and yours,
