"The Buddha attained individual awakening. Now we need a collective enlightenment to stop this course of destruction. Civilization is going to end if we continue to drown in the competition for power, fame, sex, and profit." (Thich Nhat Hanh)
What is the connection between our personal transformation and social transformation? Can Buddhist teachings help us understand and respond to the social and ecological challenges that face us today? In this workshop we will explore these issues together.

David Robert Loy is a professor of Buddhist and comparative philosophy, a writer, and a Zen teacher.
He is a prolific author, The World Is Made of Stories; Awareness Bound and Unbound: Buddhist Essays; Money Sex War Karma: Notes for a Buddhist Revolution, and his articles appear regularly in the pages of Tikkun, Tricycle, Turning Wheel, Shambhala Sun and Buddhadharma.
David lectures nationally and internationally on various topics, focusing primarily on the encounter between Buddhism and modernity: what each can learn from the other. He is especially concerned about social and ecological issues. A popular recent lecture is “Healing Ecology: A Buddhist Perspective on the Eco-crisis”, which argues that there is an important parallel between what Buddhism says about our personal predicament and our collective predicament today in relation to the rest of the biosphere.
