Meditation action at Barclays

Concerned about the environment and interested in mindfulness practice?

A climate activist looking for ways of staying resourced?

A Buddhist wanting to respond to the climate crisis and ecological emergency?

Have you just discovered XR Buddhists? Check out the events pages – newcomers welcome to all meetings.

We are a Buddhist subgroup of Extinction Rebellion. We come together from many different traditions to respond to the climate and ecological emergency. We believe non-violent direct action and Buddhist practice can be the same thing. We work to overcome systems of greed and oppression both in the world and in ourselves. We follow the principles and values of Extinction Rebellion.

Extinction Rebellion is an international movement that uses non-violent civil disobedience in an attempt to halt mass extinction and minimise the risk of social collapse.
