Opening Heart Mindfulness Community Annual Retreat: Nourishing Our Hearts, Nurturing the Planet: Healing and engaging in a challenging world
Are you seeking to live with greater self-love, self-acceptance, and inner peace while caring deeply about the state of our planet?
This one-day retreat offers you practices for individual wellbeing leading to collective wellbeing and sustainable action. With a focus on mindfulness in the Plum Village tradition founded by Zen master Thich Nhat Hanh, the retreat offers you mindfulness practices like deep listening, eating with mindful awareness, guided rest and renewal, mindful movement, community discussion, and inspiring talks all designed to nourish, nurture, and empower you toward purposeful action to heal ourselves and our beautiful planet.
The retreat seeks to intentionally make space for a diverse group of practitioners by prioritizing BIPOC individuals attendance, offering captioning for the dharma talks and affinity dharma sharing in-person groups for BIPOC, LGBTQIA , Persons with Disabilities, and White practitioners. Dharma talks and guided meditations will be live-streamed and these groups will be online as well, depending on the needs and capacities of the online group.
