The second Monday of each month, join New York Insight for an evening of teaching, meditation, and discussion focused on creating community and engagement in the face of the climate crisis.

From the organizer:

In her recent manifesto, Declare Climate Emergency Now, teacher Thanissara offers some guiding principles around this work for our consideration:

With climate breakdown, we determine to shake off the spell of individualism and fabricated division. Instead, we work together to create new ways of being on this Earth that are collaborative, mutually supportive, empathetic, and authentic. Together, we can take courage and move through the fear of speaking out, of breaking rank, and of being disparaged. We speak up and out. We encourage ourselves and others to be mindful of our personal and communal carbon use. Together we commit to becoming more conscious. Together we are powerful.

With love for our beautiful planet, through deep reflection and direct action, let us work together to take courage, move through the fear, and respond consciously to this existential threat.

All are welcome. No previous meditation experience is required.

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.”
