A Spiritual Approach to Economic and Environmental Problems | Not a day passes without another news headline informing us of dire global environmental and economic crises. Our concern about climate change, deadly air pollution and rapid deforestation conflicts with the increasing demand for fuel, resources and space for farming and housing. Too often it seems that environmental and the economic issues are in direct opposition to each other. How can we walk the path between ensuring that everyone has access to adequate resources while protecting and conserving the natural environment which sustains us?
In the world today there appears to be a great rarity of real love and compassion. We experience a lack of kindness and friendship, a scarcity of honesty and simplicity. True happiness and humility are rare. But fear is not rare, nor is international, interracial, interfaith, and intersexual conflict and it becomes all too easy to be overwhelmed by feelings of hopelessness. What can the wisdom of yoga teach us about the personal steps we can take to make a positive contribution to those around us and the world we live in? Please join us as we present this four-part series. Discover the way to true peace and happiness, plus take part in beautiful and moving mantra meditation as Acharya Das leads us through kirtan.
