Workshops & Retreats for Social Justice Workers

To be effective in their work for social change, social justice activists need to embody the deepest spirit and motivation of their work.

The contemplative practices offered here can help social justice activists return to their deepest inspiration, energy and motivation for action so as to embody the spirit of service that inspires others.

The meditations guided in these workshops help the mind relax into its most natural state of simplicity and openness, innate wisdom and compassion, so that we can become more fully present to others – communing with them in the depths of their being.

When this unity of compassion and wisdom is embodied in social action, it becomes a powerful force to challenge injustice and to remake our world into a place of mutual reverence and care.
