 The Charlotte Buddhist Vihara and Great Woods Zen center call on you to join the Sunday June 12th international “Sacred Earth Sacred Trust” effort to reduce climate change. Please read the details of the call for all governments to act now to limit global warming to no more than 1.5 degrees: http://sacredearth2016.org/

We will gather at Great Woods Zen retreat center to reconnect with nature in a half day of meditation and reflection, and to bless this precious earth through prayers/chanting . (The Zen center is nestled in 28 beautiful acres of woods out Hickory Grove Rd in east Charlotte – a lovely oasis in the City.) A group photo will be posted to the hashtag #SacredEarth2016 to add our voice to the thousands of others gathered around the world that same day.

Our activities may be indoors or outdoors, or both, depending on weather.
