One Earth Wisdom

Our Response

As a Virtual EcoDharma Center, our principal offering is the wisdom teachings and practices that support turning towards the reality of our situation and cultivating appropriate response. Guided by a teaching council representing several Buddhist traditions, we offer core programs such as the EcoSattva Training as well as EcoDharma articles curated from around the web by our editorial team.

Our offerings regularly integrate an understanding of how other social movements including racial and economic justice inform, support and compliment ecological concerns. Through a steady flow of insights, reflections, practices and fresh perspectives, we support our membership in developing a stable, rational and compassionate response to our collective challenges.

We invite you to explore and take part in our EcoDharma offerings, highlighted below.

To learn more about our response to this ever-changing and enormous challenge, see About Us.

We can meet our eco-anxiety and soothe the suffering we find there. Yet we need not be ruled by fear.
