Ecology of the Heart

with Nicholas Kranz
March 13 / 7:00 PM - March 14 / 5:00 PM

Perhaps  the most pressing issue of our time is the threat to our biosphere. Along with many other wisdom traditions, Buddhist teachings  have pointed for millenia to our deep connection and interdependence with everything in the biosphere, and the suffering that would arise from ignoring it.

How can we rise to the environmental challenges before us without burning out or falling into eco-anxiety and depression? How can we begin to practice a sort of  inner sustainability which will be mirrored in a  healthier outer ecosystem? How can we shift our view of ourselves and nature such that right living flows naturally out of our sense of fullness and connectedness, rather than  endless compensation  for life’s  lack of meaning and our sense of isolation?

In this one evening + one day course, we will focus on healing through meditation, somatic awareness, dialogue and  exploring our direct experience of what it is to be an embodied living awareness which is part of Nature, at this crucial time in our world.

By learning to work with strong feelings and emotions, we can build the strength and gentleness to meet whatever arises on our individual and collective journey with dignity and compassion.

Open to all!! Come bravely, be part of this communal experiment in not turning away, and in exploring our interdependence with an open heart.
