Ecodharma: Buddhist Teachings for the Ecological Crisis--a workshop with David Loy

  • Mountain Rain Zendo 2016 Wall Street Vancouver, BC, V5L 1J5 Canada (map)

Ecodharma is a new development in contemporary Buddhism, in response to the ecological crisis that now threatens civilization as we know it, and perhaps even the survival of our species. The workshop will focus on three aspects of ecodharma: meditating in the natural world; reflecting on the ecological implications of traditional Buddhist teachings; and the new bodhisattva path — the ecosattva.

David Robert Loy is a professor, writer, and Zen teacher in the Sanbo Zen tradition of Japanese Zen Buddhism.

He is a prolific author, whose essays and books have been translated into many languages. His articles appear regularly in the pages of Buddhist magazines including Tricycle, Lion’s Roar, and Buddhadharma , as well as in a variety of scholarly journals. 

Workshop fee: $20 plus dana (donation) to the teacher.
