Insight meditation and other dharma practices are seen as enabling a more skillful response to the social and environmental challenges of our time. This page offers a list of organisations that inspire a more insightful and compassionate engagement as well as some upcoming events.



SanghaSeva offers “Meditation in Action” retreats in India, Europe and Israel-Palestine.

Sacred Places, in your location and online

16th August, 2020

“There are no unsacred places; there are only sacred places and desecrated places.” – Wendell Berry

This retreat is an opportunity to meet together online to support working for good in our locality.
By tuning into the feeling of sangha as a community of support, we can go beyond what we feel is possible alone.
This is a chance to experience being empowered to act from our heart’s deepest wishes, and go beyond the human habitual norms of care in our actions.

All SanghaSeva retreats are facilitated by Zohar Lavie and Nathan Glyde. For more information and to book retreats please visit
