  • 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.

katie loncke

Katie Loncke 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.
