Compassion, Emergence and Climate Change

With Deborah Eden Tull recorded on September 19, 2021.

Found our teachings useful? Help us continue our work and support your teachers with a donation. Here’s how.

This year, humanity has witnessed the alarming acceleration of climate change… the loss of forests and rivers, animal and plant species… and the potential annihilation of our species. Alongside our profound grief for what is changing globally, however, we are also experiencing Emergence. 

Emergence, the organizing principle of Gaia, can help us to stay present as we navigate global change – and fuel our love and pain for our world into compassionate action. Recognizing that we are each part of emergence, we can inquire: What qualities of wonder, reverence, and respect for the mystery re-awaken in our hearts when we recognize emergence? Please join us for a heart-based exploration of eco-dharma.

    Daily Meditation Recordings, with Nathan Glyde – Week of June 14, 2021

    This week’s theme is: Contentment Blockers

    The Buddha named five key ways access to contentment is blocked, and gave clear and profound teachings that break through to the peace, joy, and freedom they obscure.

    Our hearts and minds can be pulled into a mission of greed, or sucked into aversion and rejection. We often swing between restlessness and sluggishness. It is normal to doubt the possibility of developing our experience in more free and delightful ways.

    This week we will explore the possibilities available to us to calm habitual patterns and invite vibrant-tranquility.
