Event Sponsor and Host
Earth Holder Community
Join the Thích Nhất Hạnh‘s Earth Holder Community for an eight-week online retreat, featuring “insightful talks, Earth-based mindfulness practice assignments, and online community gatherings.”
From the organizer:
This course will guide you in a process of looking into your deepest aspirations, clarifying your intentions, and selecting actionable next steps to further embody racial, social, economic, and environmental well-being.
Teachers will assign new Earth-based practices every week to support daily mindfulness for personal transformation and growth. We ask participants to devote a minimum of 20 minutes each day to these practices.
Lay and monastic Plum Village teachers from diverse cultures and histories will explore these themes:
September 13: Cultivating Wise/Right Earth Justice View, with Kaira Jewel Lingo and John Bell
September 20: Healing and Transforming Racism and Social Inequity, with Sandra Kim and Nomi Green

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.”
