Occupy the Present Moment: A Report from the Field
On Saturday, I spent the morning with about a thousand folks here in Santa Fe including our small but powerful group of dharma practitioners.
Please visit my other blog, the Liberated Life Project, to read my reflections on the experience… plus see a few photos. Enjoy!
I've been practicing and studying the Buddha way since 1994, and exploring the question "What is engaged Buddhism?" since the late 90s.
As former executive director of the Buddhist Peace Fellowship and editor of its journal, Turning Wheel, I had the honor of meeting and working with many practitioners of engaged dharma, including Roshi Joan Halifax, Joanna Macy, Alan Senauke, and Robert Aitken Roshi.
I write about socially engaged Buddhism on my blog, "The Jizo Chronicles," as well as on the theme of personal and collective freedom on my website, "The Liberated Life Project." Through my Five Directions Consulting, I offer support to individuals and organizations who aspire to integrate awareness into their work.
