An EcoDharma Meditation Retreat with James and Jane Baraz

This retreat draws on both the liberating practices of the Insight Meditation tradition as well as nature-based practices and rituals. The intention is to deepen our understanding of the human mind and heart as well as our sense of belonging to the larger web of life. Virtual sessions also available.

With Blake Hestir, Sarah Sampson, "Choke" and Alex Julie

The Ecology of Self can help participants consider their unique gifts, backgrounds, and life situations to envision actionable steps towards promoting a more socially and ecologically harmonious world.

With Lama Rod Owens

We will explore themes around climate anxiety, the harm of individual and collective narcissism, connecting to the awakened consciousness of the earth as well as the sky, and developing renewed visions for climate change organizing and activism based on the recognition that all systems of violence intersect with climate change work. We will be relying on Lama Rod’s newest book, The New Saints, along with ancient Buddhist based practices.

Cultivating Awareness, Wisdom and Love in Nature

Join Mark Coleman and explore how nature evokes not only profound insight but also opens the heart to a profound love for the earth and all species. This love is the fuel for and inspired action in these ecologically challenging times.
