This training, offered by the Ecodharma Centre in Catalunya, Spain, brings together the best in activist education with Dharma-based practice in personal and interpersonal transformation.

Effective and authentic transformation of self and the world necessarily go hand in hand. So, this event brings together a team of talented facilitators to offer tools that integrate the inner dimension of change with practical skills in organizing, community building, and designing effective strategies for social transformation.

The event highlights:

  • A training grounded in Buddhist values and practice
  • Crucial practical tools for organizing
  • Cultivating inner resources for sustaining inspiration and engagement
  • Skills for building a culture of compassion

In our times, personal and social transformation are intimately bound together. As climate change, peak oil and economic precariousness articulate the endgame of this industrial growth era, spiritual practice that fails to face these conditions runs the risk of falling into narcissistic escapism. Meanwhile, attempts to engage with these social and ecological conditions need to be resourced by deep awareness, self-knowledge, and emotional intelligence. As they say, “Wisdom without action is lame, and action without wisdom is blind.”
