With Wendy Johnson, Matthew Kozan Palevsky & Keido Troy Fernandez
In unsettled times of climate disruption and environmental challenge the engaged teachings of applied Buddhist study and practice open fresh pathways into the ancient terrain of traditional ecological knowledge.
This interactive weekend of meditation and science-based dharma investigation unfolds from the roots of Living Systems Theory and spiritual inquiry. In the intimacy of community we explore emergent practices designed to orient, ground, nurture, and transform our experience of the living world.
Upon arrival, participants will receive a course syllabus designed especially for this weekend retreat. Please note: our time together includes periods both of silent meditation as well as interactive outdoor practices in the Zen Windmill Garden at Upaya as well as exploration of the Cerro Gordo neighborhood environment.
This event is hosted by Upaya Institute and Zen Center.

One Earth Sangha offers a global list of events that express a Buddhist / mindfulness response to ecological crises. We invite you to join or add events that develop and demonstrate our interdependence with all of life! Events that address multiple issues (e.g., racism, economic injustice and environmental health) are encouraged. 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. To submit an event, please email us.
This growing list of events will always be available here and in the main menu under “Get Involved.”
