Book Study: EcoDharma
Starting January 2024 via Zoom
This landmark work is simultaneously a manifesto, a blueprint, a call to action, and a deep comfort for troubling times. David R. Loy masterfully lays out the principles and perspectives of Ecodharma—a Buddhist response to our ecological predicament, introducing a new term for a new development of the Buddhist tradition.
This book emphasizes the three aspects of Ecodharma:
- Practicing in the natural world
- Exploring the ecological implications of Buddhist teachings
- Embodying that understanding in the eco-activism that is needed today
Within these pages, you’ll discover the powerful ways Buddhism can inspire us to heal the world we share. Offering a compelling framework and practical spiritual resources, Loy outlines the Ecosattva Path, a path of liberation and salvation for all beings and the world itself.We will read the book and meet on a biweekly basis, every other week. The book club is part of our membership community. Join our community to get access to the book club and other incredible mindfulness tools or email us [email protected] if you would like to only join the book club for this book.
