Cambridge Sangha Action: Things are getting better...

Date:Friday 20th April 2018
Time:7.30pm - 9.30pm
Cost:Free, but donations welcome
Led by:Yogaratna
Description:...and what we can do to help.
Yogaratna will give a short talk and facilitate discussion on the political and ecological situation, focussing on how we might want to respond in terms of spiritual practice.

The good news is that neoliberal ideology - and its many effects on society and the planet - is powerful but crumbling. There is a great deal we can do - all the way from formal meditation to activism - to support many positive trends.

The aims of our meetings are:

Acting for the benefit of all beings: to encourage Sangha members to come together to support each other in exploring their altruistic feelings and approaches to the world’s problems. We will explore how Buddhist teachings can help us to respond more wisely and compassionately to a range of issues, both global and local.

Sangha building and reaching out: to provide a forum for Sangha members interested in taking social action together, enabling them to promote and facilitate engagement in altruistic events and projects that help others.

Education and reflection: to help educate individuals within the Sangha on world issues, and help each other to understand how Buddhist values can help us relate to these challenges.
