Sacred Earth Sangha in Central Park
 
with Sebene Selassie, Lin Wang Gordon, and Jon Aaron
 
Saturday, May 8th, 2021 | 2:00pm – 5:00pm ET
 
Since its beginning, every session of SES has begun with three honorings – honoring native land, honoring Asian lineages, & honoring ancestors. In April, May and June, we are exploring these three honorings and relating them to our commitment to honoring the earth.

In April, we explored honoring the Asian lineages of our practice. For May, we will have a special gathering in Central Park to explore Honoring Native Land.

What does it mean to honor native land in a city rampant with the destruction and desecration of nature? How do we heed the call of indigenous communities that proclaim that land acknowledgements are not enough? How do we forge a connection to earth that goes beyond ideas of property and ownership to ones of relationship and stewardship?

Join us as we use embodied and relational practices to explore these questions and more.
