Please join ZCS sangha member Ch?Kei Hilary McManus, Ph.D. (Director, Environmental Sciences at Le Moyne College) and Karin Botto, M.S. (doctoral candidate in Interdisciplinary Leadership at Creighton University) for a six-session Engaged Buddhism for Climate Action course to learn about the climate crisis, actions you can take to help mitigate the impacts on our environment and future generations, and various contemplative practices to support you on the journey.

The six live Zoom sessions will be held Sunday evenings from 7-8:30 p.m. ET on December 12, January 2, January 23, February 13, March 6, and March 27. The accompanying activities for the program can be experienced on your own schedule and pace. Participants will be asked to complete three 15-30-minute reflection exercises, and a short post-activity response weekly. The total time commitment is approximately 1-2 hours a week.

Possible benefits to participating include: deepening your own practice, experiencing a meaningful connection with nature, and learning about the climate crisis and what actions you can take to reduce your impacts or influence local change.

To register for this series, please complete this form by December 5, 2021. The course is limited to the first 25 registrants. A waitlist will be created for additional registrants and given priority for a future course.
