Meditation Retreats for Wildland Fire Fighters

Speaker: Evan Sterling Lay Leader: Dave Frey Music: Marsha Sousa
For the past two winters, several dozen wildland firefighters from around the country have gathered at the Tassajara Mountain Zen Center in central California for a 9-day mindfulness and meditation retreat. Supported by the San Francisco Zen Center, the retreats have been offered as a “Thank You” to wildland firefighters for their efforts over many years to protect Tassajara from numerous wildfires. Join in for this service to hear from UUFF member Evan Sterling, who has taken part in both of these retreats and found meaningful connections between his work in wildland fire, mindfulness practice, and our UU principles.
