Vegan Spirituality & In Defense of Animals celebrate our 2nd annual Vegan Spirituality Retreat in Malibu. We proudly announce Ecco Bella as an event sponsor and welcome Peace to All Beings author Judy Carman as our featured speaker. Enjoy group discussions, guided meditations, yoga classes with vegan yogis Lindsay Scoby Morgan and “Butterfly” Suzanne Strachan, a delicious vegan lunch prepared by PCRM Food For Life Instructor Lisa Karlan, a nature walk, an Animal Blessing with animal communicator Denise Bennett, a community ritual with Reiki Master Steven Todd Smith, and kirtan with the Temple Bhajan Band. 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. Please bring leashes or carriers for your animal companions. You’re welcome to bring a vegan/synthetic drum!
