Sustainability means living in such a way that future generations may enjoy the same abundance, beauty, and opportunities that we enjoy today. To be a sustainable activist means to take care of yourself as lovingly as you care for the earth.

Past participants comment:
“What you taught us sunk in, in ways I’m still discovering.” – IM, certified public accountant
“Each tool/meditation in the workshop helped to calm my thoughts. I especially enjoyed the silent walk and the space it helped to open inside of me. Tools which empty my mind and allow respite from troubles and nagging to-do lists are so precious. I will use these meditations and practices as I journey and build sustainability within.” – RG, city councilmember
“This workshop helped me to let go of all the things that interfere and to soften the boundaries between myself & the rest of the world . . . Marin County will be a better place for everyone if we can follow your guidance and let the benefits flow through in our leadership.” – ME, conservation director
Taking good care of ourselves is part of taking good care of the earth. Refreshed and revived, we are ready for the work that lies ahead as we restore balance in the world.
