A Buddhist Climate Scientist Discusses Wholeness in the Workplace


Estimated reading time: 1 minute

Confronting the reality of climate and other ecological crises on a daily basis isn’t easy. Dekila Chungyalpa knows first-hand the power of Dharma practice to not only soothe our breaking hearts, but also to inspire and guide our response.

In this recorded interview for the Tricycle Talks podcast, Dekila recounts her journey of integrating her Tibetan Buddhist practice into her daily work on environmental issues. In a professional, science-driven workplace, it turns out she is not alone in drawing strength from a spiritual path.

See our companion post sharing Dekila’s guided practice of tonglen, giving and receiving. Dekila will also be our featured guest in the upcoming August EcoDharma Exploration.

Dekila will be leading our August EcoDharma Exploration, an extended period of practice focused on a particular EcoDharma theme. The exploration will culminate with a live gathering with Dekila on Aug 29th. Stay tuned for more details coming soon!
