Engaging the Climate Crisis - Community Pizza and Video Night [IN PERSON]

October 22nd

Date details +
    Room: Small Meditation Hall

    Sunday, October 22, 5-7 pm

    Loving the full catastrophe and the many wonders of this world is a phenomenal source of joy and connection. It is also a deep well of grief and despair. We cannot avoid it.

    What is an ecological spirituality that attends not only to the fantasy of a lost Garden of Eden, but is able to open to the actual planet of which we are a part? A mature love for a person is to love them as they are, not as we remember them or wish they were. What does it mean to love our Earth as our Earth is; to be in a genuine relationship?

    We will share a short video teaching from Adam Lobel called Love This Whole, Messy, F*cked Up World - Loving the World As It Is

    Join others in the community for vegetarian pizza, video and discussion.

    Adam Lobel is a longtime scholar, compassionate Buddhist minister, dedicated environmental justice activist and acclaimed ecopsychologist. Adam practices at the intersections of ecodharma, meditation, and psycho-social political transformation. He has a remarkable gift for working with individuals deeply engaged in life-changing and life-affirming endeavors.

    (This video teaching is part of One Earth Sangha’s Ecosattva Training)

    Facilitated by Dylan Khanal and Mary Lang.

    Kindly register so we know you are coming. Donations to cover the cost of the pizza are welcome.
