with David Loy

From the organizer:

Celebrated author, teacher and Buddhist philosopher David Loy applies the term ecosattva to the growing movement connecting dharma teachings to environmental activism. His 2019 book Ecodharma explicitly draws attention to the inherent questions prompted by this endeavor. Primarily, does Buddhism offer any special perspective on the ecological crisis?

Our ecological emergency is not something the Buddha or Zen masters talked about, but their teachings have important implications for how we understand and respond to the greatest challenge that humanity has ever faced.

The retreat will focus on three aspects of the eco-crisis: the importance of reconnecting with the natural world; the parallels between our usual individual predicament and our present collective predicament; and the ecosattva path.

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.”
