San Francisco Bay Area, California, USA
With gatherings in two locations in the Bay Area, Green Sangha is a home for “mindfulness-based environmental action.” They offer monthly retreats, Mindful Activism & Sustainable Living trainings, and the Teen Environmental Leadership Academy to empower the next generation of earth stewards. Green Sangha brings individuals together to meditate, educate and support one another, and perform direct environmental action.
Chapters meet once a month in Oakland and Marin to meditate, educate, and support each other, and to plan environmental actions. These mini-retreats are designed to foster the qualities of calmness, lucidity, and awareness which are vital to our effectiveness as activists.
You can call (510) 532-6574 for specific dates and locations.
Green Sangha is hosting a mini-retreat: “Conversations about the Future.” Maeve Murphy will lead us in exploratory exercises from Joanna Macy’s Work That Reconnects, reflecting on our wishes and hopes for the future, imagining the resources we need to realize our dreams for the planet.Go Deeper
