Waking Up in the Climate Crisis: From Despair to Engagement
Date(s) - May 24, 2020
2:00 pm EDT - 3:30 pm EDT
Event Sponsor and Host
Shambhala Touching the Earth Collective
with Dr. Renée Lertzman
This is an online event.
From the organizer:
The Touching the Earth Collective is looking forward to hosting this dialogue with Dr. Renée Lertzman about working with climate anxiety and turning it towards action.
As we witness environmental destruction, climate crisis, and injustice, we might have a tendency to want to avoid the helplessness, anger, grief, and disconnection that inevitably arise. Avoiding these feelings is what keeps us from engaging. Renée has traveled this road herself and has clear insight as to how we can work with our paralysis, and begin to understand how to help ourselves and others get off the couch and do something.
The dialogue will be facilitated by Sara Demetry and will include teachings, break-out groups, and an opportunity to ask questions.
This event is hosted by Shambhala Touching the Earth Collective.

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.”
