What We Do

Some of us work with immigrants from Africa and the Middle East in the UK, Switzerland, and Germany, and have assisted in refugee camps in Greece. Some of us support the efforts of Lakota elders to revitalize their language and culture, and stood with them at Standing Rock to stop the Dakota Pipeline. Some of us forged bonds with healers in Rwanda while others have worked to bring peace between Israelis and Palestinians.

Some work in prison systems throughout the U.S. and Canada, with inmates, guards, and administrators. Some have opened businesses, schools, and nonprofits in low-income neighborhoods. Some work politically for solutions to climate change.  And some remind us that personal wellbeing, care, and humor are essential ingredients in caring for the world.

We do this individually—many of us have our own centers, teaching programs, and nonprofits. At the same time, it’s important to belong a large spiritual family, training, working, collaborating, and celebrating together, bearing witness to the joy and suffering of the world.
