Event description

Description

Climate instability, violence, injustice, poverty, war, the threat of extinction... The world is in crisis and the extent of suffering is overwhelming. Mostly our response is one of either hopelessness or denial, and we can see the results of these responses in our ever increasing addictions - to drugs, alcohol, distractions, and escapism.

Buddha’s profound analysis of the nature and inevitability of suffering enables us to respond with the exact opposite of helplessness, a powerful positive energy to actually address crisis. With a spiritual perspective solutions become available. We can eradicate the inner causes of our suffering and thereby compassionately help others to do the same. The state of the world can energize us to seize the opportunity to make a difference. Buddha’s extraordinary insight shows us how. If not now, when?
