- How can we foment "wise disruption" to seriously and creatively challenge systems of oppression?
- How do we integrate both spiritual practice and our deep commitments to social justice?
- What is Nonviolent Direct Action, and how can Buddhists and dharma-heads use it to build people-power, creating fresh, life-giving tactics along the way?
The Buddhist Peace Fellowship is a national organization exploring a rich and challenging spiritual-political paradox: Accepting the world as it is, and fighting like hell to change it.
Join us for a weekend NYC intensive on Dharma & Direct Action, building concrete skills for compassionate confrontation. In a world tormented by racism, sexism, climate disasters, economic oppression, and more — learn how to develop inspiring responses guided by spiritual wisdom, political awareness, and a bodhisattva's vow for collective liberation.

As Co-Director of the Buddhist Peace Fellowship, Dawn Haney brings Buddhist-informed activism to social movements from climate justice to Black Lives Matter. She has been teaching and training for close to 20 years, on feminism, anti-racism, violence prevention, and Buddhist social justice. A dharma student for the past 12 years, primarily in the Theravada tradition, she is currently in Spirit Rock’s Community Dharma Leaders training program.
Perhaps you, like Katie Loncke, seek a practice that rigorously combines wisdom, political education, revolutionary social justice, and spiritual awakening. As a Buddhist Peace Fellowship Co-Director, biracial Black feminist anti-capitalist organizer, award-winning speaker, and 8-year student in the Insight / Theravada Buddhist tradition, she loves meeting others who are equally hungry for collective liberation. Let's build.
