Boston Old Path Sangha, along with the Mindfulness Practice Community of Greater Boston, holds a Day of Mindfulness periodically throughout the year.
Day of Mindfulness on
Climate Change as a Door to Awakening
with Dharma Teacher John Bell
9:00am – 4:00pm
Saturday, April 8, 2017
Temple Vietnam, 68 Bradeen Street, Roslindale, MA 02131
During our day together, we will expand our awareness and embrace our hopes and fears with guided meditations, short videos, songs, poetry and a mindful lunch. Our aspiration is to nourish our love for the earth and her creations. We will share our personal experiences and together nourish our love for the earth and its creations. Together we will move beyond despair and powerlessness to what Joanna Macy calls “active hope.” Climate change then becomes a door to awakening an opportunity to recognize our inextricable connections with all that is. We will enjoy interactive activities, and small group sharing. We hope you leave this day feeling inspired, renewed and more empowered over the issue of climate change.
