Gary smilesINNER & OUTER RESTORATION AT GREEN GULCH, Sun, Mar 12, noon-6 pm. Historically, Zen monasteries have emphasized the skillful use of hand and eye to create order, cleanliness, and beauty. The Zendo and Gardens at Green Gulch are vivid emblems of this loving care. Once each season, we join the Watershed Stewardship group there to cultivate the land (and pure awareness). Details here. RSVP for directions:

Mindful Leadership Training. With a radical change coming in the federal government, we need every tool that we can use to sustain our efforts on behalf of Mother Earth. Mindful Leadership Training (MLT) is Green Sangha’s program of evidence-based stress management and communication skills, vital for every environmental leader. Over 800 students, citizen-activists, and public officials have participated in our hands-on workshops. Strengthen your foundation and enhance your group’s effectiveness: MLT.

Green Sangha is mindfulness-based environmental action, bringing individuals together to meditate, educate, support one another, and advocate for the Earth. We offer monthly retreats, Mindful Leadership Training, inner and outer restoration at Green Gulch, mindfulness experiences for teens, and more.

Maitri MeeraMeditation 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 promote life-affirming alternatives to destructive practices promoted by the outmoded Industrial Growth Model.  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 and through direct outreach, speaking at schools, social clubs, churches, and community venues.

Action. 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.

Our many partners have included the Berkeley Ecology Center, Californians Against Waste, Clean Water Action, Save the Bay, Sustainable San Rafael, and Transition Berkeley. Together we will hasten the Great Turning toward a sustainable and just world.
