Program Description:

This program explores how Buddhism can support us in our response to the climate crisis. We will focus on how Buddhist values and practices can help us transform our lifestyle to reduce our ecological impact, free ourselves from distraction, be present with what is happening around us, and overcome our sense of separation from nature. We will also consider how we can engage in climate activism as a form of Buddhist practice. The weekend will provide a space for participants to join together in envisioning a way of living that is ecological, fulfilling, and impactful. The program will include meditations (both indoors and outside), presentations, discussions, and other activities. Participants are asked to bring a notebook for journaling.
