Wise action in the face of climate change can be an important and satisfying part of our practice. We invite you to join us in Earth Care Week, an annual expression of brave presence with the natural world in this time of great change.
The fundamental Buddhist teachings around interconnectedness, non-violence, and conditionality all contribute to both a practice and understanding that augments and honours the ecological paradigms now arising.
On June 11th, 2013, the International Vipassana Teachers gathered at Spirit Rock for their triennial meeting and in that specifically discussed how the Insight meditation community might support a wise response to climate change.
An era of unprecedented climate suffering has begun, and it will only worsen without wise and courageous action. We call on our teachers to lead the sangha in facing this enormous challenge, and we invite you to add your voice to ours.
