Can the Climate Crisis Activate Meditation?
February 25th       
Led by Marty Janowitz 

Time:  7:00 p.m. to 9:00 p.m.  MST

This is a time when uncertainty, menace, and defenselessness are vivid sensations in our world, intensified by crises affecting each and all of us. Many argue that environmental deterioration and particularly the surging global climate crisis is the most dangerous, existentially and locally. These accelerating environmental tragedies epitomize the fractured and destructive relationship between humans and the natural world and within our own lives—separated from our true, open, awake nature and natural interconnection with all beings.

Can we activate our inner being as a transformational force for sanity, environmental health, safety, and compassion? Can we raise our gaze in meditation to activate meditation in action?

Recordings will be made available to registered participants.
