Ecodharma: Buddhist Teachings for the Ecological Crisis (Online)
Date(s) - May 29, 2020 - May 31, 2020
Event Sponsor and Host
Barre Center for Buddhist Studies
with David Loy
This is an online event.
From the organizer:
How can Buddhism help us understand and respond to the ecological crisis? This course will explore the environmental implications of the Buddhist path, including the role of meditation in the natural world, parallels between our usual individual predicament and our collective situation today, and a new understanding of the bodhisattva – or ecosattva – path. This course will be held online through the Zoom platform.
Our intention is to build sangha and provide meaningful virtual interactions with each other and teachers in our online courses. When registering for an online course, please note that you should plan to commit to the course for the entire time period outlined — beginning on the evening of the first day and ending in the afternoon of the final day.
This event is hosted by Barre Center for Buddhist Studies.

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.”
