GREEN SANGHA is mindfulness-based environmental action. We offer monthly retreats, Mindful Activism Training, seasonal restoration days at Green Gulch, and more.
Climate change is happening. We all know that, but do we know how to speak to our friends, family, co-workers, or elected officials about it? Sanjen Miedzinksi, PhD, has produced a workbook on the causes and effects of environmental collapse . . . and solutions to the mess! She invites you to peruse her articles and share them with others. Sanjen will speak to your church, social group, work place, or classroom about how we can turn things around. More information here.
California Coastal Cleanup. Join us for the largest environmental volunteer event of the year, taking place at hundreds of parks, streamsides, and shorelines across the state, on Sat Sep 20. We will meet at McNear’s Beach, San Rafael, 9 am to noon. More info here.
Looking for a service opportunity? We are looking for inspired, collaborative leaders to join our Board of Directors. Learn more here: Leadership. Other ways to get involved: check our Events tab above, see our listing of Volunteer Opportunities, or write to us: email@example.com.

ABOUT GREEN SANGHA
Meditation is the core practice that grounds us in the awareness of interdependence. From this awareness naturally springs love, understanding, and forgiveness. Learn more here: Why meditate?
Education. We educate ourselves and each other in order to live more wisely on the earth. We focus not so much on opposing destructive practices as on finding and promoting life-affirming alternatives. We speak to the good in others to inspire their participation in making the world a better place.
We educate through action sheets on target issues, through a visible presence at environmental festivals, and through direct outreach (speaking at schools, social clubs, churches, and community venues).
Actions. Green Sangha actions have addressed a wide range of issues, from rallying on the streets for climate protection, to testifying at public hearings on waste reduction, to participating in community clean-ups.
We collaborate with other environmental groups such as the Berkeley Ecology Center, Californians Against Waste, Earth Resource Foundation, Save the Bay, Sustainable San Rafael, and Transition Berkeley.
