No Time to Lose: A Dharma Response to Climate Change – Livestream from Spirit Rock Meditation Center

Sunday, September 15th, 9:30 a.m. – 4:30 p.m, River’s Way Studio, #201, Ivy Building, 2637 27th Ave S 55406

Join Common Ground’s EcoSangha community group as we look for inspiration to be the change we want to see around the climate crisis. In this day together, we will explore through teachings, meditation, and experiential exercises, how to apply the gifts and tools available through Dharma practice to the climate crisis–learning to face and transform fear, grief, anger, overwhelm and blocks that keep us from contributing in a meaningful and inspiring way. The livestream from Spirit Rock Meditation Center will feature teachers including including Tara Brach, Jack Kornfield, and Venerable Analayo. Hosted locally by Ethan Nuss.

Bring: a bag lunch and, if easy, a chair. Some chairs and many cushions available.

We’ll have someone at the outer door to let you in between 9:10 and 9:30. If you arrive after that, call Ethan at 202-631-1992

Offered freely in the spirit of generosity. Any donations we collect will benefit One Earth Sangha, Spirit Rock, and Common Ground.

Space limited to 30.  Please Register Here
