What is this retreat about?

  • Supporting you to be inspired and positive about your personal Dharma practice in relation to action around the environment.
  • A space to unite all Buddhist practitioners who also want to care for the earth, with the Dharma as our shared basis.

  • Looking at our emotions and thought processes around the environment—and how to transform them when they feel difficult. Dharma eco-activism should never promote unskilful mental states!

  • Encouraging connection in small groups where we can explore our environmental actions in relation to Dharma practice and our mental states.
    Broaden our sense of positive concern for the earth. It’s not just about climate! All life counts in an ecological approach to the Dharma.
