Support our Midyear Fundraising Effort
by Rami Efal
Zen Peacemakers International connects, inspires, supports, and trains peacemakers throughout the world who practice meditation, embody the Three Tenets of the Zen Peacemakers — Not Knowing, Bearing Witness, Taking Action — live an ethical life, and do social action as a path of awakening and service.
Supporting us in our mid-year fundraising effort, either with a one-time or a monthly recurring gift, is saying a big YES! to being moved by this mission, community and legacy, and will ensure your ongoing support.Â Maintaining our momentum, online platform, and bearing witness programs all require that ZPI has a strong foundation of supporters.YES!

Some of our accomplishments and plans for this year:
â€˘ Nearly 1400 members have joined f rom Dominican Republic to Denmark, from New Zealand to New York.
â€˘ The 2019 Native American ProgramÂ is full withÂ 30 participants that will return to the sacred land of the Black Hills, be hosted by our Lakota co-leaders, and serve the community of the Cheyenne River Sioux Tribe Reservation. The retreat is full with a growing waiting list â€“ a testament to the passion of our members for this cause.
â€˘ The 2019 Bearing Witness Retreat in Auschwitz-Birkenau is on schedule to be a powerful gathering, and will look into intersectionality, unity, diversity and action.
â€˘ Over 100 e vents will be offered to our members, including Street Retreats, Zen Trainings, and Bearing Witness Events.Â Monthly council meetings, theme-based and cluster meetings bring members together to reflect on their calling, practice and actionsÂ while learning from other members around the world.
â€˘ This is the first year Zen Peacemakers has entered without our founder, Roshi Bernie Glassman, who passed away in November 2018. A Memorial and celebration of his life took place in February atÂ Greyston, in Yonkers NY, with over 300 guests coming from around the world to honor the many aspects ofÂ Bernieâ€™s life.
All of this is and will be possible with your gift.Â Zen Peacemakers is a 501c3 not-for-profit organization. All gifts are tax-deductible in the US.
