Dharmagiri Sacred Mountain Retreat

with Ani Tsondru

A week dedicated to silent contemplation on Buddha’s wisdom teaching of interdependence, wilderness walks, and Joanna Macy’s Work that Reconnects.

The transformation of suffering is what Buddhism is all about. It means to create a personal life of peace and joy, as well as a life-sustaining world. For this, we need to harmonise our inner world with the outer world. But how do we do this, living in such perilous times? The Buddha taught that all things are inter-dependent. Understanding this brings liberation from suffering. The Work That Reconnects, based on the teachings of the Buddha, takes us through four stages beyond despair and shut-down, to rediscover our connection, and it ignites our power to act. Through these practices the future becomes do-able.

Tsondru has practised with Joanna Macy in California, engaging with the Work that Reconnects, and teaches it in Cape Town and elsewhere. She dedicates her time to being of service to SAFCEI (SA Faith Communities Environment Institute); helping people reconnect with inner wilderness through leading contemplative “Wilderness Within” trails in the iMfolozi-Hluhlue wilderness area.
