Upcoming Habit Alignment Key (HAK) retreat with our GTI community

Our founder, Tenzin Ösel Hita, will lead a Habit Alignment Key (HAK) retreat in New Zealand and Australia.

The New Zealand retreat, November 29 – December 3 at Chandrakirti Meditation Centre, is coordinated by one of our GTI New Zealand Regional coordinators, Bengu Fetzer.

At the Australian retreat, December 9-13, one of our GTI Australian regional coordinators, Mark Allaway, will lead a talk on practical ecological awareness. Mark is also leading a fundraiser to facilitate a meeting between Ösel and the First Nations People of Australia. You can read more about this here, and support the fundraiser.

Tom Truty, one of our directors, will also lead a talk, exploring the topic of approaching veganism and conscious consumerism.
