The Buddhism and Ecology Summit
Living the dharma in a time of crisis
The ecological crisis isn’t a future threat. It is our present reality.
For thousands of years, Buddhist teachings have provided tools for awakening to the reality of what is—including life’s inherent impermanence, uncertainty, and suffering. How can the dharma help us to better understand and address the predicament we currently find ourselves in? What do Buddhist teachings and practices have to offer for helping us to live harmoniously—and be effective agents of change—in the face of catastrophe?
In honor of Earth Day 2022, Tricycle brought together leading Buddhist teachers, writers, and environmentalists for a virtual event series exploring what the dharma has to offer in a time of environmental crisis. The events explore three dimensions of the ecological crisis: the spiritual and psychological roots of the crisis, dealing with the difficult emotions that arise, and taking meaningful action.
We are offering the recordings of this series by donation. Give $30 or more to receive the Buddhism and Ecology ebook, featuring teachers and writers including Joanna Macy, David Loy, Paul Hawken, Stephen Batchelor and Ven. Bhikkhu Bodhi.
