The UN report is clear, the planet is under threat, and we all need to act and act quickly. We need our voices to be heard, protest and get involved. But what happens if we are not the fighting kind? How can we help the earth and all its beings from our cushion? Can a contemplative approach to climate change make a tangible difference? This is an invitation to sit still with the heart of the challenge of these times, with Dharma and poetry as our guide, as we deepen our resolve to engage and respond for the love of Mother Nature and her sacred web of life.
