What we're about

Have you ever wondered if there might be more to the vegan journey than simply changing your diet and avoiding the exploitation of animals? Have you ever sought greater presence in the moment, a more peaceful state of mind, enhanced clarity of thought, or a stronger sense of compassion for all beings?

In this group, we seek to support and strengthen our commitment to compassion by cultivating greater mindfulness throughout our vegan lifestyle. While this might mean something a little different for each person, as a general idea it means learning to be more present, calm, clear-headed, and mindful of – and compassionate toward – ourselves and other beings. This practice involves engaging in regular meditation (whether daily or as often as you’re inclined) and setting an intention to cultivate greater mindfulness in our encounters with the outside world.

We invite you to join our next online Meetup session and see what it’s about. You’ll find a group of compassionate beings helping one another on our collective journey. We meet on the second and fourth Mondays of the month at 5:30 pm Pacific time. By the way, all are welcome – vegan, vegetarian, pescetarian, flexitarian, reducetarian, or just curious.

See you soon!
