Awakened Action Dinner
Come to Pena Pachamama for an evening of inspiration and delight. This is Green Sangha's 7th annual fund-raiser, supporting mindfulness and compassion in environmental action.
Master of Ceremonies: Juan-Carlos Solis, naturalist and environmental educator
Pena Pachamama is a popular North Beach restaurant with a popular house band. We will be in the upstairs speakeasy, with chandeliers, arched windows, and a view of Russian Hill and Coit Tower.
The event opens with a reception and no-host juice bar, featuring limeade, horchata, and other organic juices. Buffet dinner follows, with music by the Andean band, Sukay. Pena Pachamama specializes in earth-friendly vegan cuisine, drawing their recipes from the Andes and beyond. A short program follows, with a slide show of Green Sangha activities and accomplishments, testimonial speeches, and a brief meditation led by Maeve Murphy, Green Sangha activist.
A silent auction takes place throughout the evening. Auction items include a personal communication workshop with Ilene Wolf, MFT, and a deluxe massage by Simone De Winter of Marin Ayurveda. We close with two simple traditional dances led by Green Sangha program director Stuart Moody, to the music of Sukay.
Green Sangha's mission is to restore our sense of oneness, healing the Earth and our communities through mindful practice and awakened action. We hold monthly retreats, perform seasonal habitat restoration, lead an annual beach clean-up, engage in climate rallies, and advocate for plastics reduction and zero waste. We have offered training to over 500 environmental leaders, youth, and civic officials -- teaching skills of mindful communication, effective meetings, and sustainability from within. The Awakened Action Dinner will support Mindful Leadership training for grassroots activists, community leaders, and teens in detention.
