Lightness, Compassion… Action!

Mark Ovland’s retreat day Saturday 6th July 2019

This day retreat is for meditators, activists, and anyone drawn to a synthesis of inner and outer practice. We’ll explore together what the Buddhist teachings and precepts mean for us in the context of climate and ecological breakdown, and consider the morality of peacefully breaking the law in order to affect change. As well as meditation, there will be small group discussion, and reflections on the theme of Dharma-infused activism, as well as exercises from Extinction Rebellion’s nonviolent direct action training. Everyone is welcome!
