Earth Holders at Ghost Ranch, 2017

Be an Earth Holder

The Earth Holder Community is a distributed network of individual and sangha initiatives and leaders throughout North America and beyond. We are connected by a central digital hub so we can communicate, share resources, and learn from one another. Together, we will put into effect the Mindful Way Forward Action Plan–an ambitious road map for protecting each other, all beings and the Earth through joyful, compassionate, non-violent and effective action. If you embrace Plum Village values and aim to bring mindfulness, compassion, healing and non-violence to protecting each other, all beings and the earth, click here to learn about, join or start an action team.
