A week of free virtual events, including talks and interviews with leading Buddhist teachers, activists, and psychologists, dharma talks, meditation sessions, and workshops.
This year, we’ll be focusing on eco-distress: the complex and dynamic constellation of emotions we feel in response to witnessing the destruction of the natural world. Join us to explore questions including: How can we channel our anxiety, grief, and despair into meaningful action? How can we not only stay healthy and sane, but also maintain a sense of joy and purpose in these times of planetary crisis? And how can the dharma support us in living with compassion, equanimity, and wisdom in the face of uncertainty?
The week’s lineup of events includes:
Meeting Anxiety with Loving Awareness: A Practice Session with Lama Liz Monson
From Mindfulness to Movements with Michelle King, Bill McKibben, Dekila Chungyalpa, and Kristin Barker
Ecological Storytelling: Cross-Species Collaboration for Navigating Eco-anxiety with Sophie and Clark Strand
Not Too Late: Finding Hope in a Time of Despair with Roshi Joan Halifax and Rebecca Solnit
