GREEN SANGHA is mindfulness-based environmental action. We offer monthly retreats, Mindful Activism & Sustainable Living trainings, and the Teen Environmental Leadership Academy to empower the next generation of earth stewards.
Earth Day Berkeley, Sun Apr 27, 10 am-3 pm. Celebrate and tend the earth as we clean, weed, prune, add pollinator plants and fencing, and brighten up with paint in south Berkeley. Free lunch for all who RSVP. Full description and lunch reservations here.
Oneness with Peter Russell. Sat May 17, 10 am – 1 pm. “Throughout the universe One Body revealed.” This is the opening principle of Green Sangha activism. But what do we really mean by oneness? How do we cultivate it in our lives? Join physicist, philosopher, and teacher Peter Russell for an intellectually stimulating and experientially delightful exploration. San Rafael location TBA. By donation. Reservations required: write email@example.com or call (510) 532-6574. More info here.

Green Sangha brings individuals together to meditate, educate and support one another, and perform direct environmental action.
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.
