Lighting a fire of strong attention
Free public talk by Susan Murphy Roshi: 7pm, Thursday 5th March
Edinburgh Community Hall, Edinburgh Gardens, North Fitzroy
“Our beloved Australia is shockingly on fire, a continent-wide bonfire of the lies that have held long overdue climate action in check. Zen can open the way to a responsive, awake and steady form of presence, strong in its holding of the tragedy of all that is happening, firm and clear in not succumbing to fearful despair – so that we can truly be of some help”.
– Susan Murphy Roshi
