Our hearts, opened by practice, feel unprecedented suffering from the impacts of climate change on the wholeness of life. What is already lost, what is still being lost, lead to profound grief. The enormity of the global condition can make our attempts to respond feel meaningless. Staying engaged in a movement for change seems to become more difficult by the day.

Yet the practices and teachings of the ancients still offer helpful ways to respond. In this gathering, we will explore some of these teachings and practices, including a koan attributed to the great Chinese teacher Dongshan Lianjie.

One Earth Sangha offers monthly EcoDharma Explorations. Join our featured speaker and One Earth Sangha for a live Zoom gathering on Sunday, August 21, 11:00 AM to 1:00 PM US Eastern / 8:00 to 10:00 am US Pacific / 5:00 to 7:00 pm CEST. If you can’t make it to the gathering, a recording will be available.

Tim Ream is a long-time Earth activist and Soto Zen practitioner. He received lay ordination from Tenshin Reb Anderson in 1994 and has engaged since in repeated, intensive residential practice, mostly at Tassajara Zen Mountain Center and Green Gulch Farm. Tim is an organizer, campaigner, writer, and environmental attorney. His activism ranges from direct action and civil disobedience like tree-sitting and road blockading to successful lawsuits to protect wolves and other species.
