Links: Ecodharma

Here I've provided links to centres around the world practising ecodharma and relevant online resources. In listing these organisations I am not personally endorsing them, simply signposting readers to potentially useful places and resources. If you're new to ecodharma you can read my reflections on ecodharma and ecopsychology, and, for a longer read, I highly recommend Ecodharma: Buddhist Teachings for the Ecological Crisis by the scholar, Zen teacher, and activist (and my friend and mentor) David Loy, available from Wisdom Books.

Centres:

The home page for the Ecodharma centre in the Catalan Pyrenees, hosting courses and retreats supporting the realisation of human potential and the development of ecological consciousness, though social engagement, founded by Guhyapati and run by the EcoDharma training collective.

Rocky Mountain Ecodharma Retreat Centre, Boulder, Colorado, USA

The home page of Rocky Mountain Ecodharma Retreat Centre, which brings Buddhism and Dharma back into the natural world where they originated, fostering the clarity and compassion needed to better address the ecological crisis and inextricably related social justice issues.

Online resources:

One Earth Sangha

The founding premise of One Earth Sangha is that the Buddhist tradition offers significant, largely untapped resources that can support us in bringing wisdom, compassion, courage, creativity, flexibility, and a steady resolve to our inter-related ecological and social crises. This site includes how to register for the 'ecosattva' online training.
