Mindful Action Retreat – EIAB

Thank you for your interest in this retreat. We regret that, due to measures to prevent the spreading of the Covid-19 coronavirus, unfortunately this retreat has been cancelled. Please see our announcement for more information. 

A retreat for peace, climate and social justice activists

Many of us are wholeheartedly and tirelessly engaged to create a better world through peace, climate and social justice activism in different ways. Because we work with dedication and in often challenging environments, many of us are facing the risk of burn-out or experience frustration and despair. How can we be engaged and face suffering, and still take good care of ourselves and our happiness? The practice of mindfulness can help us to touch peace and joy within and gives us the strength to continue our actions.

We are very happy to invite you to join us to this retreat organised by Plum Village monastics and Wake Up at the European Institute of Applied Buddhism (EIAB) from March 11-15, 2020. The EIAB is the Plum Village center near Cologne in Germany.

There’s a revolution that needs to happen and it starts from inside each one of us. We need to wake up and fall in love with Earth. Our personal and collective happiness and survival depends on it.

Thich Nhat Hanh

In this retreat we will create a safe(r) space in which each of us can learn and heal, so that we can strengthen our deep aspiration to achieve the change we want to see, and be a stable refuge for those who need us.

We will hear talks from teachers from Plum Village as well as some sharings from people who already practice ‘mindful activism’, take part in circle-sharing, connect with like-minded people and have time for ourselves, to rest and reflect.
