Mountains and Waters Alliance exists to work with forces of nature to protect and restore the wholeness of life, healing the mind of separation. Connecting with other people is part of that work.
We have the opportunity to present a workshop titled “Asking all beings for help with climate change” at the biennial gathering of “Daughters of the Buddha”, an international organization of Buddhist women.
Buddhist women from the world, especially Asia and including women from traditional villages, attend and teach at this conference. This creates an unparalleled opportunity in the ongoing work of breaking down the walls of my own cultural prison. While I go to offer a teaching and to seek companions in this work, the important matter is the learning and opening.
The conference is in Hong Kong. I avoid travel to minimize fossil fuel use, but have decided in favor of going.
The $2000 requested will cover fees, housing, and travel. Any surplus will help with miscellaneous costs and donations.
