Balancing the elements, practicing compassion, exploring healing action during times of ecological crisis

This four-day retreat is meant for people who care about the planet and understand that the urgent changes we need include inner transformation. At a relaxed pace, we explore the elements of earth, water, fire, air, and space and their ever changing balance, and do group practices that help us find our unique calling and courageous ways to respond in this time of crisis.
The retreat brings together the work of environmentalist and philosopher Joanna Macy, renowned for The Work That Reconnects and Active Hope, exploring deep ecology and systems thinking, together with a therapeutic system of meditative/mind training practices known as Tara Training developed by the highly regarded meditation master and Doctor of Tibetan Medicine, Akong Tulku Rinpoche.
