Oceans of Compassion: A Retreat In Service To The Earth

September 16 - 18, 2022

Dinner Friday September 16th - Breakfast Sunday September 18th (you are welcome to come early on Thursday the 15th if you like, but be sure to bring your own food until Friday dinner)

In conjunction with SOLVE’s Oregon Beach Cleanup activities, you’re invited to join the Zen Community of Oregon for a weekend CAMPING retreat at BEVERLY BEACH STATE PARK.

Take a weekend on the coast to connect with the Sangha. With a relaxed schedule and opportunity for socializing, there will be sitting times, Dharma talks, and practices to take with you into the clean-up.

We will share work practice together — cooking, set-up, clean-up — as a continued expression of care for each other and the Earth. We will focus on themes of Compassion, listening practice, our precious living earth and waters, and the Bodhisattvas who look after them.

When: Dinner Friday September 16th – Breakfast Sunday September 18th (you are welcome to come early on Thursday the 15th if you like, but be sure to bring your own food until Friday dinner)

The SOLVE Beach Cleanup will take place on Saturday September 17th from 10am – 1pm.
