Support Our Work

The founders, director and volunteer staff of One Earth Sangha offer this space as our own expression of dana, or generosity, to the Earth and to the Buddhist wisdom tradition. Generosity is the first of the ten paramis, or qualities of character, to be perfected in spiritual life. The very act of giving benefits the person who gives, for it opens the heart, lessens self-absorption, and serves the well being of others. Simply offering a small favor, a kind thought, a meal, or a flower may be a sincere form of spiritual practice.

We invite you to support our work, either financially, or, equally important, through service. To offering your skills and time, please see our volunteering page. To support us financially, you can make your one-time or monthly donation below. Monthly donations are especially helpful for us to sustain our work over time. Know that whatever you can give is deeply appreciated!

Dedication of Merit

Our prayer that any goodness generated here be extended out into the world

May all places be held sacred.
May all beings be cherished.

May all injustices of oppression and devaluation
     be fully righted, remedied and healed.
May all wounds to forests, rivers, deserts, oceans,
     all wounds to Mother Earth be lovingly restored to bountiful health.

May all beings everywhere delight in whale song, birdsong and blue sky.
May all beings abide in peace and well-being, awaken and be free.

    I am interested in taking your 2017 Ecosattva course. Can you tell me when you will have info. on the dates of that?

    • Hi Katherine,

      Thank you for your interest! We don’t have exact dates yet for the 2017 course but you can expect it to start around the first week in October and go for 8 – 10 weeks after. Make sure you’re subscribed to our newsletter and/or like us on facebook so you can receive updates.

  2. Hi Kristin,
    I am a member of the Insight Community of Southern Maine. We took part in the EcoSattva training last fall (and LOVED the course–thank you so much for the hard work of all participants). We are marching in the Climate Mobilization in Augusta on 4/29, and several of us have signed up for the webinar on April 2. We were wondering if the webinar will be recorded, as you did during the EcoSattva training? A couple of us have conflicts that can’t be avoided. We would like to watch together at our regular meeting time on Tuesday night.
    Thanks so much for your reply!

  3. Thank you so much for your Alan Senauke webinar. It was very inspiring in providing ways for each person to make a difference. I am not physically able at this time to participate in the march, but I will stayed tuned to see what develops.

    • Great to have you join us, Jikyo and thank you for your support of Alan and One Earth Sangha.

  4. Many thanks for a great webinar on Sunday. When will the talk be posted online? As an overseas supporter how can I contribute financially without bank charges to ensure One Earth Sangha gets the full amount given?

  5. Engaged is an Eco-dharma Sangha forging coalitions with other groups from multiple walks life, to provide eco-dharma, access to One Earth Sangha and the Eartholder Community. We are on fire for the People’s Climate March, and directing Buddhist and non -Buddhist alike through our FB and other web sources, and our connections with mindful groups from Baltimore to Harrisburg and east to Lancaster, Pa. We are so grateful for the wonderful Eco-dharma teachings we can provide links to and for our own use. You guys are quite possibly, the greatest. Thanks to David Loy who threw some water on some of my perking seeds at a long retreat last summer. Peace in Every Step. Jim Ebaugh

    • Hi Jim,

      I just picked up this comment. Thank you for your kind words. I know you’re doing wonderful work on behalf of our Ecological Self as well! We’re still looking for ways to support local sanghas like yours so perhaps we can connect sometime in December. Email and we’ll talk!

      With appreciation,

  6. I am interested in the Ecosattva training beginning in Oct . However for the better part of the course I will be traveling overseas making group participation problematic whether on line or in person . Any way I can take the course without the group aspect ? Thanks

    • Hi Michael,

      So sorry to have missed this message from long ago. All sessions of the EcoSattva Training are recorded so you can start the series at any time, individually or with a group. Do let me know if you have any further questions by emailing

      With appreciation,

  7. I am happy to support your work and am doing so! However, I think it would be helpful if you could provide information on how donations will be used.

    Perhaps at some point you might even report a bit on the organization’s revenues and expenditures. If you are a 501(c)3 org you probably have to do that, but I am suggesting that even a more general level of disclosure would go a long way to encouraging people that their donations will be well-used.
