Ecodharma: Buddhist Teachings for the Precipice (Webinar)
Date(s) - Sep 12, 2020
12:00 pm EDT - 1:30 pm EDT
Event Sponsor and Host
Eco-Dharma Network, Network of Buddhist Organizations
with David Loy
This is an online event.
From the organizer:
Buddhism originated in a very different time and place, so can it really help us understand the cascading crises that confront us now? What does it mean to be a bodhisattva—or ecosattva—today? Writer, professor and Zen teacher David R. Loy will be discussing how we can respond appropriately to the ecological emergency, and intersecting social issues — perhaps the greatest challenge that humanity has ever faced. There will be an opportunity to ask David questions and discuss ideas in small groups.
This event is hosted by Eco-Dharma Network, Network of Buddhist Organizations.

One Earth Sangha offers a global list of events that express a Buddhist / mindfulness response to ecological crises. We invite you to join or add events that develop and demonstrate our interdependence with all of life! Events that address multiple issues (e.g., racism, economic injustice and environmental health) are encouraged. You’re invited to list events from your local sangha, including earth-oriented day-longs, retreats and even regular sangha meetings. We also want you to share demonstration and direct action events. You, the members of our Sangha, are encouraged to submit events, whether they be from the Dharma community, other faith groups or secular, where you wish to gather other Buddhist / mindfulness practitioners to participate. To submit an event, please email us.
This growing list of events will always be available here and in the main menu under “Get Involved.”
