Mindfulness as Survival Equipment: A day of mindfulness for activists and changemakers

April 9, 2017 @ 9:30 am - 4:30 pm


This day of mindfulness retreat is an opportunity to unplug from the stresses of daily life and work, and to enter into a deep period of solitude and “inner habitat restoration.”

We are living through a time of wrenching changes—culturally, politically and ecologically. Many people feel a sense of despair or bewilderment at the scale and pace of these changes. At times like this we need to re-establish our connection to what is most essential and enduring about our lives. We need to reconnect with our own inner depth, vitality and resilience. Our capacity to be agents of healing, for ourselves and others, depends on our ability to navigate these challenges with skill and with heart. Mindfulness gives us the practical tools for doing this.
