Ecodharma: Buddhist Teachings for the Ecological Crisis In-Person

Ecodharma: Buddhist Teachings for the Ecological Crisis
In this program, Zen Sensei Dean Williams explores author David Loy's views expressed in his landmark book Ecodharma: Buddhist Teachings for the Ecological Crisis. The book can be described as a manifesto, a blueprint, and a call to action to our planet' ecological predicament. The framework that traces the origins of the environmental to our disconnection from nature and the natural world, and it reflects our lack of awareness, mindfulness, and compassion will be the focus of discussion.   
This program is co-sponsored by the Cleveland Heights Green Team, as part of its commitment to inspiring the Heights' community to transition to more sustainable choices through education, stewardship, and activism.
