Caring Practice

prayer-flags-torn-stripCaring for the earth and all beings, human and non-human, is caring for ourselves. In this stream, we explore the various forms of practice that embody that care:

  • Earth Meditations
    Practices for individuals to undertake on their own or in sangha to cultivate connections to the earth, our larger body.
  • Living Green
    Inspiration, strategies and resources for reducing our carbon emissions and waste as well as other ways of contributing to a healthy planet.
  • Wise Speech & Action
    Opportunities for speaking and acting with others on how we can respond to the reality of climate change with wisdom and compassion.
