Touching Earth: Buddhist Approaches for Care of NatureOn Fri, 6 November, 2020 - 17:17
This online retreat offers an in-depth opportunity to cultivate a Dharmic view of the linked environmental crises currently facing all living beings – in the air, in the sea and on the earth.
•We will explore relevant Buddhist teachings and their implications for our lives today.
•We will meditate and reflect together on our actions and our options, creating a safe space for turning towards the reality of the situation and the emotions that arise.
