In this ambitious and challenging series, Vajragupta asks us to reflect on our political views and conditioning, so as to come to a deeper appreciation of what a Buddhist perspective might be.
Join members of the Triratna Earth Sangha online on Sunday 20th June for meditation with a focus on the web of life, plus a workshop based on Joanna Macy’s Work that Reconnects and an opportunity to share what’s live for you concerning the Climate and Ecological Emergency. There’ll be discussion groups and a puja based on the Shambhala warrior training verses.
Contributions toward a seed fund for future activities will be welcome but absolutely not required.

Entering the new era with openess and non rigidity is a skill that can be learned. Are you interested?
