Green Earth Awakening Camp is an intimate gathering, at the turning of the summer season, delving into community, nature based practice, land-based skills, crafts, and creative ways to forge social and ecological resilience.

It is an invitation to all, of any faith or none, held by Buddhists for the purpose of cross-pollination

Because inner self development supports resilient outer action in the world.

And practitioners of faith have a responsibility to respond to current social and ecological challenges.

In these times of climate chaos, increasing poverty and division, and with the abhorrent legacy of colonialist thinking, we need a bold new conviction in compassion. The lens of Buddhism offers a view of the world that positions us as connected and integrated into the complexity of life. This view offers a route away from individualism, scarcity and separation, heading towards connection, abundance and solidarity.  

We value a re-emergence of practices that unpick the sense of separation, so that we can begin the work of opening up into a wider sense of self, alliance with all beings and a bold transformation of our global systems.

 

 

What is it?

Green Earth Awakening is an off-grid, drug and alcohol free, temporary camping community of up to 500 people. It involves workshops, talks and group discussion. Our timetable is carefully curated to support reflection and depth. We value celebration and creativity as vital aspects of being in community.

At Green Earth Awakening, you will find workshops on: 

  • community and movement building,
  • nature based practice
  • social change
  • practical tools for resilience
  • land based skills and crafts
  • singing, dance, play and body work. 

There is a meditation space, death awareness space, ritual, healing area, open mic, musicians, cafes, showers and sauna, and, as always, the throbbing heart of the central fire.

When does it happen?

Green Earth Awakening Camp happens every 2 years in September. Every other year we hold the themes of the larger gathering as a camping retreat for up to 30 people on Buddhafield’s land. This is an opportunity to go deeper into practices that support inner and outer transformation. To find out when these retreats are happening, check the Buddhafield’s events page.

Get involved

 

Volunteer

We run on the generosity of volunteers. We thrive on the strength of community that is created during the events as well as during  set up and taken down. To volunteer on one of the teams please apply here.

 

Offer workshops

To offer talks, workshops or run a space at this event please apply here.

We rely on the generosity of people buying tickets to keep this event running. We offer reduced rate tickets for people from marginalised identities who experience structural oppression, because we acknowledge the extra labour required to access certain spaces. We want to rectify this gap in access. We also fund places for people who are less financially secure. Please consider what you can offer through our tiered payment system as described below.

Prices

For the first time, we’re selling weekend tickets for this event. We believe there’s great value in giving yourself the extra space and time to really sink into what Green Earth Awakening has to offer – so come for the whole event if you can. However, we know that’s not always possible for everyone so we hope that the weekend tickets will ensure we welcome more people to this beautiful event.
