In what ways can Buddhist practices, intellectual traditions, and communities support us in mindfully and skillfully working to mitigate and adapt to catastrophic climate change? Can Buddhist thought and practice help us in feeling deeply and acting prudently without being overwhelmed by fear, anger, blame, or guilt?
Bhikkhu Anālayo addresses these questions in this Mindfully Facing Climate Change lecture series. Four essays accompany the lectures and variations of these were published as installments of a special four-part issue of Insight Journal. Bhikkhu Anālayo also provides audio instructions each week for meditation practices to build resilience, compassion, and wisdom for mindfully facing climate change. The four installments and lectures are each based on one of the four noble truths: “Relating to the Earth” (1); “An Ethics of the Mind” (2); “Liberation of the Mind” (3); and “Walking the Path” (4).
