Cultivating Wisdom In The Face of Climate Change

Teachers: Subhana Barzaghi and Carol Perry

Venue: 'Sangsurya', Byron Bay


The unique retreat format encourages exploration of the ways that ancient wisdom practices nourish an ecological and social consciousness.

Through the cultivation of mindfulness, gratitude and deep listening we can awaken our hearts to the intimacy of interconnectedness and nurture the capacity to honour our joy and pain for our world. By embracing not knowing and building resilience we can see with new eyes and go forth with wise and compassionate action.


The schedule includes; sitting & walking meditation periods, daily meditation instructions, interactive experiential group exercises, open inquiry sessions and Dharma talks. There will also be one-on-one interviews with teachers, and time for discussion and sharing experiences.
