Is it possible to be healthy, appreciative, and at peace and still relate with the social and ecological challenges of our world? Can we care for ourselves and care for those around us at the same time? How does mindfulness and spiritual practice relate with social action?

Come spend the weekend exploring questions such as these with some extraordinary leaders from different aspects of society.This event will unite two essential elements that lead to a more compassionate, sustainable, and wise world - the personal and the social. Participants will explore how our engagement in our lives can deepen our personal experience and help bring about social transformation.

Hosted by meditation teacher and Shambhala Lineage holder Sakyong Mipham Rinpoche, speakers will include social change leaders such as the Episcopal Bishop of California Rt. Rev. Marc Andrus, meditation teacher at Google Chade-Meng Tan, social visionary Rev. angel Kyodo williams, Authentic Leadership Director Susan Skjei, Acharya Adam Lobel, and others.

This weekend will also include some of the other elements that add to the richness of our world such as art, music, and movement.
