"Ecodharma, A Buddhist Path for the Climate Crisis" - A Talk with David Loy (via Zoom): David Loy is an activist, writer, and Zen Teacher. Many have suggested that the ecological crisis is as much a spiritual challenge as a technological and economic one. Does Buddhism offer any special perspective on this imminent catastrophe? Loy suggests that Buddhist teachings have important implications for how to understand and respond to the greatest challenge that humanity has ever faced.
