Class: EcoDharma (Drop in)
- 8:30 PM at Lamont Dharma House, (1719 Lamont St., NW, Washington, DC, 20010) (Map It)
EcoDharma – Applying Buddhist wisdom to our ecological crisis
What does it mean to live in accordance with Buddhist principles in the context of global climate change? What would our lives look like if we were to respond to the environmental crisis as an expression of our Buddhist path? How can Buddhism, with its understanding of greed, hatred and delusion, as well as its deep exploration of our connectedness and inter-being, contribute to a conversation about broad-scale transformation?
Join Kristin Barker, Director and Co-Founder of One Earth Sangha, for an exploration of how we actualize the Bodhisattva vow and help ourselves and others fully awaken to the truth of a warming world.
The session will begin with a period of silent meditation, then a dharma (teaching) talk, and afterwards brief time for Q & A.
The session is from 7-8:30 p.m. If you arrive late please wait to enter until the meditation has ended.
This event is free and open to the public, but we encourage people to give dana (donation) to support the teachers and the space. The suggested donation for this event is $10-15.
