with Dr. Renee Lertzman
From the organizer:
Whether to travel by air can be one of the hardest decisions of all. Flying can provide us with such extraordinary convenience, joy, and fulfillment. At the same time, it has truly devastating impacts on the planet. As an environmental psychologist, my work has shown us that when we feel, reflect and connect with others, we can take action on even the toughest challenges, even reducing our air travel. How can we reconcile our spiritual values with our everyday lives? Grounding in Faith is a brand-new, experimental pilot program designed to help us answer this question. Created in partnership with GreenFaith as a component of the Living the Change campaign, we have developed the tools and resources that will test this approach. Here’s all you need to do to join us:
Sign up for a live, virtual workshop – join myself and others on the path for a 2-hour session guiding us through a joyful and enriching experience. No shame, blame or guilt.
Receive tools, guidance and resources – how to talk with people in our lives about air travel and related climate change impacts, how to make different decisions, and how to grow our own spiritual leadership.
Participate in Grounding Sessions – uniquely designed resources and sessions that deepen our commitments and enable us to be successful on our journey, no matter what level of commitment you make.
Sign up for one of three online workshops (Tuesday, November 5, 6pm-8pm PDT; Wednesday, November 6, 8am-10am PDT; or Thursday, November 7, 11am-1pm PDT) on reconciling travel choices with deeply held spiritual values.
This event is hosted by Living the Change.

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.
