an Extended Earth Day Exploration
In April 2021, Thanissara, Pennie Opal Plant, and Alison Ehara-Brown led an extended exploration of the mutually enriching traditions of Buddhism and Indigenous wisdom.
In observance of International Day of the World's Indigenous Peoples, we share this guided audio practice from Pennie Opal Plant.
Intersections and Worldviews
Having opened up internally and individually, we rise to the collective and historical, understanding how objectification accumulates over time in the form of dominant institutions, how delusion is codified and how domination spreads that delusion. Participants are invited to explore, with compassionate accountability, how the dominant cultural body conquers, colonizes, and exploits not only Earth and other peoples but its own members. This is where we let it all in, the full catastrophe.
