Maybe the belief that there actually is a ‘ground’ at all is a key part of our anxiety and suffering?? Maybe another source of our suffering is that we resist or deny our ‘falling’? How do we learn when to fall gracefully ,and when and how to embrace the joy and exhilaration of ‘falling’?
The next stage of the mindfulness based experiences will investigate how we can learn to ‘crack the code’ of our suffering, and to embrace the opportunity to be in community, as we work out how to live fully on the groundless ground of our current existence.
The climate crisis is an urgent and existential threat to all life on Earth. This talk will explore how Buddhists contribute to action on this crisis.
In the workshop we will explore the question ““how might we adapt these ideas as a compass for personal and collective action?’”
