[Solidarity Action] Awakening For Earth: Outdoor Meditation in Newburyport

Nov 07

Awakening For Earth started a new chapter in Newburyport, MA!

Residents of Newburyport will be holding Sitting for Survival meditations to bear witness to our current climate emergency and in doing so, strive to awaken others to see and take action.

Where: 22 Market Sq, Newburyport, MA 01950

When: Every other Sunday from 12 - 12:45PM

We will sit distanced with signs that we will provide or you can bring your own. Please come masked.

Who We Are: We are spiritual practitioners dedicated to facing the climate crisis with compassion and determination to engage in nonviolent direct action. We see climate justice within the framework of social justice and commit to advocating for policies that empower communities most impacted by climate change.

What We Do: We invoke our mindfulness practice to hold the pain of this ecological and spiritual crisis. We bring silent sitting and walking meditation to public spaces to raise awareness to the devastating effects of our planetary emergency and the urgent need to take personal and collective action. Recognizing the need for regeneration in this consuming effort, we invite pauses to be in community, to care for one another and nourish ourselves, bringing the energy of love and understanding to sustain this demanding effort.

During the pandemic, we have been working towards our goals through virtual gatherings. As the days get warmer, we are now doing a combination of outdoor protest and virtual regenerative practice.
