”The gift you carry for others, is not an attempt to save the world but to fully belong to it. It is not possible to save the world by trying to save it. You need to find what is genuinely yours to offer to the world, before you make it a better place.” - Bill Plotkin
Although at the time of the Buddha there were none of the environmental issues now facing us, the Dharma offers us a spiritual response. Buddhist principles are based on loving-kindness, non-violence and truth. These values offer a path of transformation, for us as individuals and as part of our community. During the weekend we will be exploring social, political and ecological themes. Learning to accept the challenges facing us we can offer service to the Earth as aspiring ‘Eco-Sattvas’. With meditation, puja, talks, eco-workshops and optional Earth Chi-Gung each morning.
