The retreat invites attendees to listen to our own hearts in order to raise our voices in unity and take action to mitigate climate change. This requires us to consider our own suffering and the suffering of the planet. By doing so, we can then identify our hope for a new world, our love and compassion for all beings, and a vision that will guide us to act.

The virtual retreat will be facilitated by Ven. Dr. Dhammadipa Sak, who serves as the Abbot of US Zen Institute, and Sister Pat Bergen, an educator, spiritual directress, and retreat facilitator.
