Mindful Direct Action Training

  • Twin Cities Friends Meeting 1725 Grand Ave Saint Paul, Minnesota 55105 (map)

What does it look like to answer moral injustice with mindful/prayerful direct action? In these turbulent times we are called to act in the rich tradition of spiritually grounded protest for a better world.

From the Line 3 tar sands pipeline to police violence and the ongoing attacks on immigrant communities, come learn ways to directly confront injustice while practicing how to be in better community with each other and our Earth.

Join us for an introductory training to the skills needed to spiritually ground ourselves and defend our communities. This training will combine mindfulness techniques to reflect on your spiritual calling to act, to practice de-escalation during protests, and to organize for inclusive direct action. This event is open to the public and everyone is encouraged to attend.

Facilitated by Ethan Nuss from Common Ground Meditation Center, Alina Yaman from Minnesota Interfaith Power and Light, and KT Glusac from Our Saviour's Housing
