"Active Hope is not wishful thinking. Active Hope is not waiting to be rescued by the Lone Ranger or some savior. Active Hope is waking up to the beauty of life on whose behalf we can act. We belong to this world."
- Joanna Macy & Chris Johnstone, Active Hope (2012)

Green Sangha is mindfulness-based environmental action. We offer monthly retreats, Mindful Activism & Sustainable Living trainings, and the Teen Environmental Leadership Academy to empower the next generation of earth stewards. More information: info [at] greensangha.org
