ATTENTION: We made a mistake in previous versions of our newsletter.

The event titled "East Coast Dharmachakra" was previously titled "Afternoon Dharmachakra" and was listed as a weekly event. In fact, it takes place just monthly on the first Sunday of each month. We apologize for the confusion, and we hope you'll join our siblings in the Washington, DC area for meditation and Kiirtan on Sunday, June 6th at 3pm PST via Zoom. All information has been updated on the website and event calendar.

Spiritual Intention
In this article, Acharya Rama connects sankalpa, or spiritual intention, to the planning, preparation, and constant course correction it takes to fly a plane.
He shares that his career as a pilot has taught him much about the power of intention. "When I file a flight plan, more than anything else, I know my destination.. In my experience, sankalpa is an amazing and powerful force to take us there..."

SUMMER RETREAT AT DHARMALAYA
After over a year of separation and online events, we're finally preparing to come back together at the Dharmalaya center in Eugene, Oregon this summer! We're filled with gratitude for this opportunity to share physical space with our community once again.

This past year has taught us a lot. Notably, we've gotten quite good at coming together online. We'll use that knowledge to keep much of the retreat accessible remotely to those who cannot come in person. We encourage all who are able to join us at Dharmalaya in order to receive the full benefit of the retreat.

We'll be sharing more information about the details of the retreat very soon!
Art for Service & Blessedness

Each month we share inspiring and uplifting works of art and media.
Stay tuned for more information about our weekly arts blog, coming soon.
The documentary film The Biggest Little Farm chronicles the eight-year quest of John and Molly Chester as they trade city living for 200 acres of barren farmland and a dream to harvest in harmony with nature. Through dogged perseverance and embracing the opportunity provided by nature's conflicts, the Chesters unlock and uncover a biodiverse design for living that exists far beyond their farm, its seasons, and our wildest imagination. Featuring breathtaking cinematography, captivating animals, and an urgent message to heed Mother Nature's call, The Biggest Little Farm provides us all a vital blueprint for better living and a healthier planet.
Re-Story Our Future With Your Creativity
Mary DeMocker | TEDxPortlandStateUniversity
"Some years ago, my friend Mary began to create collaborative art projects in her front yard as a way of drawing attention to the climate crisis and her environmental concerns. She has since written a book, The Parents’ Guide to Climate Revolution. In this TED talk she shares her thoughts with heart and humor on how to create a positive future through creativity." -Kirana Perkins
