There are so many vibrant earth and green sanghas doing beautiful work in various geographies and Buddhist traditions. One aspect of the mission of One Earth Sangha is to build awareness of and support these local groups. Our “Web of Sangha” collection will highlight the activities of such sanghas and help individuals find each other to form new groups.
We feature a growing numberof green groups including:
- Dharma Action Network for Climate Engagement (DANCE)
- Earth Sangha in Arlington, Virginia
- Green Sangha in the San Francisco Bay Area
- Spirit Rock Green Group
- Touch the Earth Forum
Track their updates here or on the individual pages above. And be sure to tell about local groups you know of that are exploring the intersection of ecology, caring for the earth and a Buddhist or mindfulness path.
