Transforming Self for the Earth

Buddhist Action Month takes place in June and is a time for reflecting on the relationship between practice and action, for asking what our practice is for, and for taking action.

This year’s theme recognises the suffering of all living beings and of the planet. It is a response to both the ecological and climate emergencies.
