Eco Dhamma

 Eco comes from the Greek word oikos meaning house or home.
From it we get the words ecology and economy.
The present ecological crisis is not just a pollution problem, but an indicator
of how our human psyche and culture became divorced from our natural habitats.
This is a spiritual crisis, challenging us to realize our utter interdependence with all of life.

‘Business as usual’ is steadily eroding around us.

We are now riding the waves of systemic dismemberment,
while at the same time witnessing a massive global awakening.
