Newcastle Earth Sangha

Hello! We are a small dedicated group of folks from the larger Newcastle Sangha who are interested in inspiring each other and our broader communities to respond skilfully to issues related to climate in small everyday ways as well as larger actions. Here are some examples of some of the events/actions we’ve
organised over the past year or so:
* Poetry workshop lead by Linda France, winner of the Poetry Society's National Competition 2013
* Balsam bashing event with Tyne rivers trust
* Earth Sangha retreat session
* Carbon assessment of the centre and work towards getting NBC into the Sustainable centre scheme
* Tree planting events

We meet every two months or so – online and in person and if you’re interested we’re always keen to welcome new members and new ideas about actions to organise. Just email Newcastle Buddhist centre at: for more information.

We also have a representative on the larger Triratna Earth Sangha (TES) group which meets occasionally and online, and which works in the same way, bringing together reps from Triratna Sanghas across the world to share ideas and inspire each other. You can find further information about TES at

TES regularly organises excellent online retreats about the climate and Buddhism as well as other events.
