I am organizing two virtual meditation retreats for animal advocates. The first one, on February 20, is the local retreat for folks in the Twin Cities, Minnesota area. The second one, for folks anywhere, is on February 27. Here’s a description of the retreats:
During the winter of 2020-2021, we may experience ongoing suffering, anxiety, and uncertainty due to the COVID 19 pandemic. The recent Uprising may also be tumultuous, bringing a much-needed reckoning about racism and violence towards Black people. We are hosting these retreats as a way to strengthen our self-love, compassion, resilience and patience. We cultivate unconditional love and foster our well-being so we can be caring forces of good for nonhuman animals, human animals, and all life everywhere.
The goals of the retreats are:
- Develop self-love
- Learn skills to face challenges with patience, calm, and equanimity
- Foster a community of advocates who nurture each other’s development
