Annual Vegan Spirituality Retreat & Blessing of the Animals
Public Eye: Artists for Animals and Vegan Spirituality present the 3rd Annual Vegan Spirituality Retreat, "Exploring Veganism as a Spiritual Practice." We welcome Rae Sikora, founding director of Plant Peace Daily, as our featured speaker. Neal Seghal will introduce his new organization, "Evolve For Animals." Enjoy group discussions, guided meditations, yoga classes with vegan yogis John Calabria and Derek Goodwin, a delicious vegan lunch prepared by chef Christina Martin, a nature walk, and an Animal Blessing with rescue donkeys from La Ronda Stables. Free childcare is provided. Friendly companion animals are welcome at the Retreat and Blessing Ceremony.
Honor your companion animals and animals around the world through drumming and dancing in nature! Bring companion animals, a photo, or your own animal spirit! Everyone is invited to drum and dance in the Ceremony, which offers opportunities to celebrate animal companions, honor those that have died, empathize with animals suffering around the world, and create a vision of harmony between humans and other animals.
