Bound to Each Other – FAQ

This is the list of frequently asked questions about Bound to Each Other, One Earth Sangha’s August EcoDharma Exploration.

General

Most practice materials will become available on August 10. After this date, you may start whenever you like. You can decide how you want to engage with the material offered—a little bit every day, a day-long deep dive, or somewhere in between.

Be sure to mark your calendar for the live capstone gathering with participants, exploration leader Dekila Chungyalpa, and One Earth Sangha on Sunday, August 29.

While we encourage group participation, in person or online, you are absolutely welcome to join as as an individual. Either way, we hope that you’ll join the leaders and whole community for the live, online capstone gathering on August 29.

If you are looking for a group to join, we invite you to visit our Group Directory.

Without exception, everyone is invited to be a part of this training. Our only criteria for participation with others is that you engage the material with a sense of curiosity and thoroughly respect differing points of view.

Your registration includes:

  • Access to all materials on the Materials page starting August 10: recorded teachings, guided meditations, inquiries, and more.
  • Access to the live gathering on August 29.
  • All participants will have access to the materials indefinitely.

Accessing Sessions

Registered participants can find all resources on the Materials Page. Most materials will become available on August 10. We will send an email notifying you as materials become available.

We request that you don’t. Registrations support our operations, as well as helping us understand the reach of programs and improve future offerings.

However, we do not turn anyone away due to lack of funds. We offer a sliding scale of registration fees, and we invite anyone unable to afford the lowest tier to contact us at to request free registration.

Yes, we plan on providing transcripts for all audio resources, and closed captioning for videos.

Since these videos are such large files, they’re especially vulnerable to any network interruptions. Try replaying the session again as a new file.

Unfortunately, the videos are not available for download. We hope to add this option in the future!

All materials will remain permanently available to registered participants. Even after the capstone gathering on August 29, we hope you’ll revisit the materials if you find them helpful!

Capstone Gathering

The gathering with our leaders and participants in this exploration took place on Sunday, August 29, 12:30 – 2:30 PM Eastern US Time.

Yes, we plan on recording the gathering for those who cannot attend or those who wish to revisit it. The recording will be posted on the Materials page by September 1.

Registration Fees

Support for Groups

We very much encourage you to undertake this exploration with a group, whether existing or new, online or in-person (if it is safe to gather).  Visit Group Registration to get started.

If you do not have a group but would like to join one, we invite you to visit our Group Directory.

Groups of three or more people will receive a 25% discount on each individual’s registration fee. If you’re part of a group, your organizer should send you the link for registration so that you can pay the group rate.

While it’s easy enough to share the materials and video with others in your in-person group who are not registered, we request that all who participate go ahead and register for the exploration. This helps us understand the reach of our programs and improve future offerings. If anyone lacks financial means, please contact us at to request free or discounted registration.

Right here! Group Facilitator’s Guide

Please note that this guide was created with the EcoSattva Training in mind, so not all sections will be relevant to this program. But we hope it will still be a useful resource.

Groups of 6 to 10 work well, but we encourage you to do what will be most effective for your community.

There is no one right way to approach these teachings, but we have a few ideas to get you started on the Materials page, available as soon as you register.

Other Questions

We have a small staff of volunteers doing our best, and will try to answer all of the e-mails we are receiving. We ask that you check this FAQ and only if your question isn’t answered here, send us your question at and we’ll do our best to get back to you.
