We invite you to join us in this auspicious gathering of practitioners as we prepare our hearts and minds for the People's Climate March on Sunday , September 21st. We will come together to inspire and support each other in calling forth our courage and resolve, as we stand with people from all over the country and around the world to support our leaders in taking right action on climate.
This will be a defining moment in history and for Buddhist practitioners: a moment to clearly demonstrate our deep concern and love for the Earth and all living beings on it. Together we will explore how to bring our practice to Right Action and add our voices to this call for a more just, equitable and sustainable world.
There will be Dharma reflections, collective sharing, meditations, chanting, ritual and fun.
As part of our commitment to making the space friendly and healthy for all particpants in this event, we are asking you to be fragrance-free out of respect for fellow sangha members with chemical sensitivities that impact their health.
For more info on what "fragrance-free" means, see here.
In short, here's what we're asking:
- Please please refrain from using perfume, cologne, or other strongly scented hair care/body care products (lotion, shampoo, body spray) on the day of this event.
- Please also refrain from wearing clothes that have been freshly laundered using scented detergent or dryer sheets.
- If it's got the word "fragrance" in the list of ingredients, that means it's not fragrance-free!
Following these guidelines is an act of love that makes sure all of us are healthy and able to participate fully in the march.
