Eco-Sattva training: an online course for aspiring "EcoSattvas"On Tue, 28 April, 2015 - 14:17
“In the face of catastrophic climate change, we as a Buddhist/mindfulness community have the opportunity to creatively define for ourselves an appropriate response: a response that is wise, compassionate, transformative, resolute and equanimous. To realize this potential, the community needs leaders of all kinds at all levels. This is the path of the EcoSattva.
Building on a series of five online ‘Mindfulness and climate action’ conversations in 2014, One Earth Sangha is offering a series of eight online sessions 10th May-19th July, to support aspiring EcoSattvas in a diverse and powerful body of response, tailored to their aspirations and abilities and grounded in the demands of their local situations. Specifically, the course will endeavour to
- Root action on climate in Dharma practice
- Develop sangha by connecting EcoSattvas with each other and outside partners
- Inspire and Inform ‘appropriate response’ ”
