Buddhism, the Environment and You
Sunday October 3rd 10.30am to 12.30pm
It’s a crucial time in the relationship of humans with our environment. How to live? What to do? Come and join some of the most thoughtful members of our Order as they reflect on the issues, and how they can be addressed in our Buddhist practice.
You are invited to take part in this event hosted by North London Buddhist Centre, FutureDharma and Windhorse Publications.
[You can attend in person at North London Buddhist Centre or via Zoom: https://us02web.zoom.us/j/81911582128?pwd=OHZGU3hsM0ZwckdEeXd6UUE4Q296UT09]
There’s a fantastic panel, hosted by Dhammamegha, the director of Windhorse Publications.
Vajragupta published Wild Awake: Alone, Offline and Aware in Nature with Windhorse Publications. In it he talks about solitude, sensitivity, and being alive to the natural world of animals, plants, and weather as an integral part of Buddhist practice.
Maitridevi is the chair of Taraloka women’s retreat centre, and has been leading retreats and developing a meditation practice to connect with more life. During lockdown she recorded a series of meditations on Awakening with trees.
Shantigarbha has just released his second book with Windhorse Publications: The Burning House: A Buddhist Response to the Climate and Ecological Emergency. He is an activist, and non-violent communications trainer.
Join us to explore such questions as: What does it mean to be human in the environment? Which views and actions condition separation and which connection? How do we become more sensitive? What is the nature of wisdom in the context of the natural world?
This is a fundraising event by the FutureDharma Fund for Windhorse Publications. The event is free, but please consider responding to a call for donations to support Windhorse Publications to keep publishing life changing dharma books.
