We are thrilled to be hosting the Gathering at the spiritual home of what Jack Kornfield has called “possibly the most diverse sangha on the planet” — a sangha with social justice at the heart of its mission.

If the world is to be healed by human efforts,
I am convinced that it will be by ordinary people…
People whose love for this life is even greater than their fear.
