A Buddhist Response to Climate Change

Using essential Buddhist teachings we can examine the suffering that is being caused by climate change.  We feel for the beauty and life-enriching presence of animals, forests, oceans and our many different human relationships and, as we focus on gratitude, we gain a capacity for understanding our grief, sorrow and shock at the prospect of their demise. Understanding the causes of climate change and the interdependence of living systems, we can move into engaged action. When we see the importance of generating skillful effort to deal with climate change we can focus on specific and constructive actions and be the change we want to see in the world.

Fee by donation: Suggested starting donation is $20  but whatever you offer is greatly appreciated and no one is ever turned away for lack of funds.  For this event all donations are split evenly between the teacher(s) and NYI.

Amma Thanasanti

Amma Thanasanti Bhikkhuni Amma Thanasanti Bhikkhuni has been meditating for 35 years, 25 of which she has been an ordained Buddhist nun.  In 2009, after 20 years in monasteries associated with the Ajahn Chah Forest Tradition, she returned to the US and founded Awakening Truth, an organization whose mission is to share essential teachings and strengthen the relationship between monastic and lay practitioners.  Awakening Truth’s eventual aim is to create a Bhikkhuni training monastery and modern Dhamma village. Amma skillfully blends the rigor of early Buddhist teachings with the gentle encouragement to discover one’s own path.
