“What is it to respond to the cries of the world with an open heart?”
“What emerges in space that feels safe to share, where the listener doesn’t move to fix, to repair or spring into action?”
“Nature is the best of all teachers.”
This teaching is excerpted from No Time to Lose: A Dharma Response to Climate Change, a daylong event hosted in September 2019 by Spirit Rock Insight Meditation Center. Participating teachers included Joanna Macy, Belvie Rooks, Jennifer Berezan, Venerable Anālayo, James Baraz, Thanissara, Tara Brach, Jack Kornfield, and others.
