The ecological crisis is the greatest challenge that humanity as ever faced. What do Buddhist teachings offer that can help us understand and respond appropriately? And what does the eco-crisis imply about how we understand and practice Buddhism? How do we honor our grief at what is happening? How do we combine personal transformation with social transformation? What does the ecosattva path involve?
The weekend will include dharma talks, group discussion, and meditation practice — some of it outdoors, weather permitting. Recommended reading: David’s most recent book, A New Buddhist Path: Enlightenment, Evolution and Ethics in the Modern World. He will also present from his forthcoming book Ecodharma: Buddhist Teachings for the Precipice.

Whether one needs to request aid to defer a large or small portion of the cost of a retreat so as not to incur a financial burden, we strive to accommodate you.
