« back to classes page
Thich Nhat Hahn distinguished himself through his activities as a peace activist in the Vietnam War, leading Martin Luther King, Jr., to nominate him for the Nobel Peace Award.  As the foremost proponent of the movement that he himself labeled as "Engaged Buddhism," he carried social activism not only into the fight against violence but into many other areas of social concern. The focus of this course is his last book, Zen and Art of Saving the Planet. The book travels into diverse areas, primarily addressing climate change.  As in all his teachings, Nhat Hahn first focuses on individual self- transformation before addressing the collective work deemed necessary to save our world.  As part of this process, he provides many poignant, radical Zen insights and penetrating meditative practices, thus furnishing us tools to engage productively in our current life situations. Meditation techniques will be explored and practiced during the course. We highly recommend that you purchase Zen and the Art of Saving the Planet, available in both print and e-reader forms. The book will be read during the course.
