Climate Change (2015)
In the spring of 2015, Bay Area Dharma Seminar undertook a study of Climate Change, first to inform ourselves on the facts of climate change and secondly, in facing these facts steadily for a month, to discuss how we felt about them. How does our practice inform us on this issue? Norman gave 4 of the 5 talks and, for talk 3, Jay Simoneaux offered his reflections and insights.
