BUDDHIST ACTION MONTH:
** please arrive for a 7pm start**
The world is facing many layers of crises and engaging with these can be overwhelming. Join us for a special evening of tea, meditation, and insightful kōrero!
Wellington Young Buddhists is holding an evening of discussion in partnership with Generation Zero (Wellington) for Buddhist Action Month. This year’s theme is “For the Earth”. During the evening, you will have the opportunity to learn about Buddhist practises that will help you manage stress and new phenomena such as climate anxiety. Discussion will be centred on how we can become more environmentally and socially conscious and what actions we can take to lead more sustainable lives, while also ensuring we take good care of our own well-being.
There will be a speaker from both Wellington Young Buddhists and Generation Zero, time for group discussion and getting to meet one another, as well as a mediation session suitable for beginners.
Generation Zero is a non-partisan, not-for-profit, youth-led climate organisation that champions solutions towards a carbon-neutral Aotearoa. They campaign for smarter transport, liveable cities and independence from fossil fuels by lobbying government, business and other actors to advance climate change action.
