Facing dangerous interconnected social, political, economic, and environmental crises, we often feel defeated, even while trying to make a difference. With reactive currents in our psyche running in different directions, we must first acknowledge how we’re doing before we clarify our innermost intention.
Taking the theme of ReLOVEution, we explore a heart-centered approach rooted in the practices of the Bodhisattva, connecting us with the innate drive of nature to restore herself in alliance with our own natural capacities as emissaries of transformation and as part of Earth’s immune system.
Grounded in Insight Meditation and Dharma reflections, we will include psycho-spiritual process work, embodied movement and breath practice, mantra, chanting, group sharing, and a Quan Yin Compassion Ceremony.
On-Land space is limited due to COVID protocols in place, please register here only if you can join us on the land. If you can only join us remotely online, please register for the Online version and you can participate by Zoom or watch the program later.
