Events

Creative ecological events and dialogues immerse us in the embodied experience of the interdependent web of life, bringing us together to celebrate our love of the Earth; to connect, share ideas, and explore collaborations.

Contemplative practice provides the grounding, equanimity, and clarity to open our hearts to our experience, to acknowledge our grief, and to cultivate deep connection by piercing the illusion of separateness.

Together, we gather, learn, and engage in mindful action. All are welcome.

Please bring your own cushion, chair or ground protection and a face covering if attending in person. All attendees must follow social distancing precautions. Wear layers and protection as needed – we sit in all weather conditions.

By practicing regularly in nature — sitting in the elements, with the elements, as the elements — we are able to experience greater intimacy with the Earth and with the interdependency of all life. During this time of profound of ecological change, we draw upon the practice of bearing witness to help us to feel deeply, see clearly and act wisely to nurture a healthy, thriving planet.

Co-hosted with members of the Eon Zen Sangha and Zen Peacemakers Colorado. All are welcome.
