Buddhist Eco-Chaplaincy Training 2021-2022

Jan 1, 2021 @ 8:00 am - Jan 1, 2022 @ 5:00 pm PST

The second Buddhist Eco-Chaplaincy training program begins in January 2021, offered through the Sati Center for Buddhist Studies. Having just finished our first training at a time when eco-chaplains are needed more than ever, we are offering the training sooner than we had originally planned. It will be held primarily online, with one longer residential retreat based at a TBA retreat center in California. Please see below for more details and forward this announcement to those you think would benefit from this program. Information also online at our website.
Chaplains provide religious, spiritual, or profoundly humanistic support in significant and often difficult times. Buddhist chaplains do this with their combined capacity for attention, integrity, compassion, and inner freedom, and their capacity for healing, reconciliation, and living with meaning and purpose. Buddhist Eco-Chaplains add to this a focus on our intimate relationships with the natural world. As we experience massive and global environmental changes, Eco-Chaplaincy has a growing role in helping us respond with presence to the challenges of our times.

This year-long program will begin in January 2021 and will provide Buddhist training in the wisdom and skill needed to be a Buddhist Eco-Chaplain, i.e., those who work to establish people in a healthy, compassionate, and mutually supportive relationship with the natural world. It will offer experience-based activities and contemplative practices that deepen individuals’ own relationships with the natural world, as well as provide them with skills to be spiritual caregivers, helping others (re)connect with nature and face contemporary environmental crises with wisdom and compassion.
