Join David to explore these questions…

Does Buddhism provide any special insight into the ecological challenge? Do its teachings imply a different way of understanding the biosphere, and our relationship to it, which can really help us at this critical time in history, when we are doing so much to destroy it?  And what does the ecological crisis imply about how we have been understanding and practicing Buddhism?

This workshop precedes a two-day non residential retreat with David on Saturday May 19 10am-4pm and Sunday May 20, 10am-4pm.  Click here to register for the weekend retreat, cost is $150

David Robert Loy is a professor, writer, and Zen teacher in the Sanbo Zeb tradition. His many essays and books have been translated into numerous languages. His articles appear regularly in the pages of major journals such as Tikkun and Buddhist magazines including Tricycle, Turning Wheel, Shambhala Sun and Buddhadharma, as well as in a variety of scholarly journals. Many of his writings, as well as audio and video talks and interviews, are available on the web.

David is especially concerned about social and ecological issues. A popular recent lecture is “Healing Ecology: A Buddhist Perspective on the Eco-crisis”, which argues that there is an important parallel between what Buddhism says about our personal predicament and our collective predicament today in relation to the rest of the biosphere.  David Loy is one of the founding members of the new Rocky Mountain Ecodharma Retreat Center, near Boulder, Colorado.
