Ecology and Social Change: Applied Insights from the Natural Worldwith Marty Janowitz

November 22nd—November 24th

Dorje Denma Ling, a meditaiton retreat center in Tatamagouche, Nova Scotia, will host "Ecology and Social Change: Applied Insights from the Natural World," November 22-24. We invite you to immerse yourself in beautiful natural surroundings, enjoy engaged community and our warm hospitality. The weekend will be led by Marty Janowitz, a longtime meditation practitioner and instructor who has played a pivotal role in prioritizing sustainability as a social change issue in Nova Scotia and beyond.

Recognizing that we live in an interconnected world where societies and natural systems share many attributes and challenges, we ask: how do we play constructive roles as activists, citizens and spiritually engaged practitioners? This group exploration will be an important time for collaboration and sharing practices and ideas that move critical environmental work forward. Register here.
