In our engagement on climate and other ecological issues, we are placing ourselves at the intersection of the three domains: ecology, justice, and Dharma. These have the potential to vitally inform one another and yet, in the absence of mindfulness, each also has the potential to deny the other two. In our practice of engagement, then, how might we understand these tendencies and risks in each domain, so that we can more fully and effectively express their gifts?
