In this retreat we will call on our ancestors, including Martin Luther King, Thich Nhat Hanh, and Cree Elder Jim Settee, to support us in building beloved community, in today’s world.
Ancient and modern teachings will guide us in connecting through our diverse identities and experiences, into ways to stand strongly and kindly together, in these times.

When I met Martin Luther King Jr., in 1966, we spoke about Sangha building. The beloved community is the Sangha. ~ Thich Nhat Hanh
