This is an online event.
From the organizer:
A special retreat for climate activists and anyone engaged in working for social justice, aspiring to create a healthy and compassionate society. Activism carries the risks of burnout, interpersonal conflict, emotional exhaustion, and despair. As antidotes, we’ll explore how to truly listen to our hearts, restore balance and harmony in our life, and find the strength and inspiration we need to build collaborative communities and realise our collective aspiration.
This retreat is offered by Plum Village monks nuns and laypeople trained by Thích Nhất Hạnh, a Zen Master and peace activist. Thích Nhất Hạnh pioneered “Engaged Buddhism” where mindfulness and meditation support concrete action for a better world. The mindfulness practices he and his community teach, have been road-tested in times of war and conflict. This retreat aims to support you to take care of yourself so can sustain your care for the world around you.
This event is hosted by Plum Village.

You’re invited to list events from your local sangha, including earth-oriented day-longs, retreats and even regular sangha meetings. We also want you to share demonstration and direct action events. You, the members of our Sangha, are encouraged to submit events, whether they be from the Dharma community, other faith groups or secular, where you wish to gather other Buddhist / mindfulness practitioners to participate.
