Five Days to Deepen Mindfulness
This is a special retreat for climate activists, social activists, activists in other fields and anyone working to create a healthy and compassionate society. Activism carries the risks of burnout, interpersonal conflict, emotional exhaustion, and despair. As antidotes, we’ll explore how to truly listen to our hearts, restore balance and harmony in our life, and find the strength and inspiration we need to build collaborative communities and realize our collective aspiration.
This retreat is offered by Plum Village monks nuns and laypeople trained by Thich Nhat Hanh a Zen Master and peace activist. Thich Nhat Hanh pioneered “Engaged Buddhism” where mindfulness and meditation support concrete action for a better world. The mindfulness practices he and his community teach, have been road-tested in times of war and conflict. This retreat aims to support you to take care of yourself so can sustain your care for the world around you.
