Mindfulness in Action: Reconnecting to ourselves and the Earth
Date(s) - Sep 23, 2017
2:00 pm EDT - 5:00 pm EDT
Event Sponsor and Host
DANCE London group/ Dharma Friends of the Earth
Addressing environmental issues is one of the most pressing issues of our time, from climate change and plastic pollution to mass species extinction in our lifetime. A global response is needed. How can we do this without feeling paralysed or overwhelmed?
This experiential workshop is being offered by Dharma Action Network for Climate Engagement (DANCE) and Dharma Friends of the Earth, engaged Buddhist groups active on climate change and environmental issues. Our wish is to create spaces and opportunities for people to engage with such issues, through connection with self, others and the Earth. We will be honouring the pain that we, or others may feel, as a result of environmental destruction.
We are inspired by the work of Joanna Macy and will be exploring practises such as mindfulness and how this can translate into engaged activism.

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.”
