Ecology of the Heart: ~ Retreat Scholarship Eligible ~ Zoom option available

with Nick Kranz

April 15 - 18, 2021

Along with many other wisdom traditions, Buddhist teachings have pointed for millennia to our deep connection and interdependence with everything in the biosphere. Having arrived at this critical moment together, how can we rise to the challenges before us without burning out or falling into eco-anxiety and depression?

There will be an opportunity to learn and practice sitting and social meditation, to ask questions, discuss together and engage in experiential exercises that will help you connect the appreciation of outer ecology with the innate tenderness of the heart.

Everyone is welcome to attend this online gathering; no previous experience is required!
