The earth is precious. Without its health and stability our own well-being is threatened. Each day, we are faced with the struggle of making choices to live more sustainably while systems of violence and power like capitalism, racism, patriarchy, and others continue to disrupt this work of sustainability.
Join Lama Rod Owens in exploring themes around climate anxiety, the harm of individual and collective narcissism, and connecting to the awakened consciousness of the earth as well as the sky. How can we develop renewed visions for activism based on the recognition that all systems of violence intersect with climate change?
We will be relying on Lama Rod’s newest book, The New Saints, along with ancient Buddhist based practices, including mindfulness and tantra, and body-based practices to deepen our understanding of our body’s connection to the earth. This event is open to anyone regardless of practice experience.
