A four-part series
April 16 & 30, May 14 & 28
1:00 pm – 2:30 pm (in person)
14 Green Street, Lebanon, NH
6:30 pm – 7:30 pm (online)

We will be using the online recorded talks Bhikkhu Analayo offered as a four-part online series this past winter. Now available for free as an online course, it presents an environmental ethic, rooted in the Early Buddhist Sutta tradition, from which to understand and to take action on behalf of our planet’s climate emergency. It is based on the Four Noble Truths (the Buddha’s first teaching) and is applicable to engagement with other social justice issues as well. In addition to the online recorded talks and meditation, optionally, we’ll also use Analayo’s book MINDFULLY FACING CLIMATE CHANGE, which is available as a PDF.

The group will meet in-person at 14 Green Street, Lebanon, NH, from 1:00-2:30 p.m. (with the option of staying until 3 p.m.) and again online on the same evening, from 6:30-7:30 p.m. for those who cannot make the in-person group. For more information or to register, contact info@valleyinsight.org.
