With Onryu Kennedy 
February 6 – February 14 (Sesshin and Parallel Trauma/Line 3 Events Included)
on Zoom

Engaging with the Cries of the World: We are invited during this intensive to investigate with curiosity how our practice supports our lived experiences. Engaged Buddhist practices invite us to connect more deeply with practice realization.  How do we engage more fully with the cries of the world in relationship to ourselves, family, friends and beyond. How do we in the midst of chaos and confusion anchor ourselves and all beings in spiritual stability?  We will practice together with these questions.  Zazen, council practice, and dharma talks will be offered during this intensive. 

Everyone is invited and welcome to attend a three-night event on February 8-10 from 7-8pm (CT) for conversations on parallel trauma and Line 3 (a proposed pipeline expansion to bring nearly a million barrels of tar sands per day from Alberta, Canada to Superior, Wisconsin) with two indigenous leaders: Jewell Arcoren (Sisseton Whapeton) and Nookomis Debra Topping (Fond du Lac/Anishinaabe).
