Description

Naropa in New York: an abc series at Deepak Homebase, presents:

Mending Our Disconnections: Earth, Social Justice, and Compassionate Engagement, with Jeanine Canty, PhD

∆ Talk & experience: Thursday 4/12 7-8:30pm $25

We are witnessing and experiencing deep suffering in our world. Our society has disconnected itself from nature and from the oppression of people. In the evening talk, we will examine how our ecological and social crises are integrally connected and how to respond with compassionate action. We will have the opportunity to explore this intersection more deeply through exercises and open discussion.
