CLIMATE RESILIENCE ON THE COAST
If you’re concerned about hurricanes, storm damage, and the resilience of coastal cities, join me and other friends at The Sophia Institute in Charleston, SC for a series of mindfulness events. On October 5th, we will host a private screening of WALK WITH ME and discover a different way of being and doing to safeguard humanity’s future. October 6th and 7th we’ll host a 2-day retreat: Mindful Advocacy for Personal and Community Resilience. I look forward to seeing you there.
