Runaway Meditation Retreat

by Taz Tagore

This year, the New York City-based Reciprocity Foundation pioneered a Buddhist retreat program for homeless, foster care and runaway youth. Over 20 youth attended 3-day retreats (at Dharma Drum retreat center) in upstate New York. The youth reveled in the beauty of the pristine forests, the lake and the silence while practicing yoga and meditation, eating vegetarian meals and studying Buddhist principles. This video was co-created by homeless youth to capture their inner transformation.

    This video made me cry. “Our plan is to have a Reciprocity in every neighbourhood that needs it.” Yes, yes, yes.
