Green Sangha Awakened Action Tea with Joanna Macy

This event has passed.

Join Green Sangha for this special fundraiser featuring our special guest speaker, eco-philosopher Joanna Macy, PhD, scholar of Buddhism, systems theory, and deep ecology. A long respected voice for peace, justice, and the environment, Joanna interweaves her scholarship with five decades of teaching and activism on behalf of all beings.

“Action isn’t a burden to be hoisted up and lugged around on our shoulders.  It is something we are. The work we have to do can be seen as a kind of coming alive. More than some moral imperative, it’s an awakening to our true nature, a releasing of our gifts.” – Joanna Macy

Also including, Master of Ceremonies Bry’Andi Brandon, teacher and healer; Elizabeth Little, Program Director for Green Sangha; and Trathen Heckman, founder and director of Daily Acts, and President of Transition US. With Bet Muth, Master of Ceremonies; Debra Harrow & Stuart Moody, Green Sangha board of directors; and Trathen Heckman, founder and director of Daily Acts.
