Sacred Earth Sangha
Second Monday of the month | 7:00pm-9:00pm
Please join NYI teachers, Sebene Selassie, Lin Gordon, and Jon Aaron for an evening of teaching, meditation, and discussion as we create a community around deep practice and conscious engagement of the challenges of the climate crisis.
In her recent manifesto, Declare Climate Emergency Now, teacher Thanissara offers some guiding principles around this work for our consideration:
With climate breakdown, we determine to shake off the spell of individualism and fabricated division. Instead, we work together to create new ways of being on this Earth that are collaborative, mutually supportive, empathetic, and authentic. Together, we can take courage and move through the fear of speaking out, of breaking rank, and of being disparaged. We speak up and out. We encourage ourselves and others to be mindful of our personal and communal carbon use. Together we commit to becoming more conscious. Together we are powerful.
With love for our beautiful planet, through deep reflection and direct action, let us work together to take courage, move through the fear, and respond consciously to this existential threat.
All are welcome. No previous meditation experience is required.
