Green Dharma: Finding Presence in an Earth-Based Lineage (Online)

Lama Willa Blythe Baker, Lama Liz Monson, Sarah Buie
June 26, 2024 - June 30, 2024

This is the registration for the online attendance option. For the residential option, please click here.

Join the community of Natural Dharma Fellowship to access our innate wisdom, deepen in our oneness with the natural world, nurture community and lean together into a livable future.

In this retreat, we will engage in a transformative journey – first considering the truths we know, metabolizing what we come to see, listening for the wisdom in ourselves and arising between us, and the possibilities of embodying new ways of being. We focus on connecting deeply with source, metabolizing loss, learning to seek and dwell in connection rather than isolation, in curiosity rather than despair and in love rather than fear. Participants will learn and experience

  • Earth based meditation practices
  • Communing with and in the wild as our natural home
  • To develop and sustain circles of kin, especially through the Council process
  • Listening deeply to self, other and the living planet
  • Finding refuge in body as an earth-based resource

This retreat will be led by Lama Liz Monson and Lama Willa Baker, Spiritual Co-Directors of Natural Dharma Fellowship,  https://naturaldharma.org and Sarah Buie, Founding Convener, Council on the Uncertain Human Future https://councilontheuncertainhumanfuture.org

Program Cost

It is Natural Dharma Fellowship’s aspiration that no one be turned away from our teachings and retreats because they are unable to pay the full price. In order make our offerings affordable for all who wish to attend, we offer a three-level fee structure:

  • May All Beings Benefit! – supporting access for all and assisting with the care and maintenance of Wonderwell Mountain Refuge
  • A Middle Way – covering the base cost
  • Held in Sangha Loving-kindness – offering ease when financial resources are limiting

The pricing options for a particular retreat are based primarily on its length and are intended to give you an idea of what it costs to offer that retreat. The amounts listed are suggestions. You may write in any amount that fits your financial situation. Any amount offered above the Middle Way level will be considered a tax-deductible donation and will be acknowledged as such in writing.


Access to Recordings

NDF offers unlimited access to recordings, which are accessed in your user dashboard (more information about user accounts provided in a pre-retreat letter). If you have a user account, please register with the same email you use to log into your dashboard. If not, an account will be created for you using your registration address.

Availability will vary depending on the type of event and the backlog for our precious resource volunteers. Thank you for your patience.
