EcoSattva Training: Together at an Edge
Online Class from
One Earth Sangha
Wednesdays, March 4 – April 22
7 – 9 PM
UPDATE: As of March 18, 2020, this class is cancelled. Those of you who are registered with One Earth Sangha can of course continue to watch the videos, join the monthly online meet-ups and savor the teachings of this course. At some point in the future, the BDC will sponsor this course again in its entirety. Stay tuned!
Join us in One Earth Sangha’s EcoSattva Training to come together at this edge in human history. Drawing on wisdom from Buddhism and the growing field of climate psychology, this course will support us in turning toward our experience of climate change so we can respond to it authentically, positively and whole-heartedly. Together, we’ll explore these times of intensifying change and draw upon Buddhist practices to cultivate the wisdom and compassion that can carry us forward.
Each session will include background materials, a video featuring a leading voice in eco-dharma, experiential exercises we can explore individually and together, follow up materials and more. If you need to miss a session, you will be able to stream that content on your own. We hope for consistent attendance, but are happy to flex with your schedule so as to share this compelling program with all those who’re interested.
You can PREVIEW THE COURSE HERE. on the One Earth Sangha’s website
