Navigating Ecological Tragedy
Beyond Hope and Despair: A collaborative inquiry with Buddhists and Christians.

About this event
A weekend event with Gomde UK Tibetan Buddhist Centre in association with Green Christian’s Borrowed Time project.

Now is a time between worlds: the one we have always known, and another beginning to unfold. On current trends, climate breakdown and mass extinctions could trigger the collapse of our civilisation. Even with resolute action, we stand to lose much that we cherish.

Our response to today’s ecological emergency will be the making of us, and of all life on Earth. If we have the courage to face our grief and anxiety, we will find that beyond them lie self-transcendence, equanimity, even joy – and the power to act, whatever the future holds. Join us for a journey beyond both hope and despair, where maps have yet to be drawn.

Registration for this event will open in the coming weeks.
The event will begin with a public talk on the evening of Friday 6th March at a venue in Doncaster, open to all.

The weekend programme, with residential and non-residential options, is for Christians and Buddhists and those who wish to travel with them. Together we will seek common ground where we can give ourselves faithfully to the radical insecurity of our times.

A detailed programme will be available soon.
