Chaplaincy is the crucial work of providing spiritual care, frequently in moments of transition or crisis. In times like these, people often need forms of support that the larger culture doesn’t readily provide. A chaplain can serve as a trusted confidant, someone who will listen deeply to us and advise us, but not necessarily tell us what we want to hear.

What is it to chaplain one another, human and non-human, through the eco-social crises of our time? Kirsten Rudestam, a core faculty member of the Sati Center Buddhist Eco-Chaplaincy training program, will lead this EcoDharma Exploration into how we might relate to one another and with Earth itself, as givers and receivers of spiritual nourishment.

One Earth Sangha offers monthly EcoDharma Explorations. Join our featured speaker and One Earth Sangha for a live Zoom gathering on June 25, 11:30 AM to 1:30 PM US Eastern / 8:30 to 10:30 am US Pacific / 5:30 to 7:30 pm CEST. If you can’t make it to the gathering, a recording will be available.
