Each Mindful Meal Is A Step Towards Sustainable Food For All - 1 comment

Filed under Opinion Pieces

By “Jackie Writing Jackie”

Around the world, over 3 billion people are malnourished, and many more eat a poor quality diet. Sustainable food practices are essential in order to ensure an adequate supply of good quality, nourishing food for an ever expanding population. However, in a world of greed and destruction, change will be slow to occur. When individuals take control over their own relationship with food, in accordance with Buddhist teachings, it can make a positive difference, not only to their own health and well-being, but to that of the world as a whole. Eating mindfully, being aware of where produce comes from, and savoring meals with friends all help to consolidate a strong connection with food and how it can nourish the world.

Considering the Future of the Treasure of Shambhala

Este artículo ha sido traducido al español aqui. Pour lire cet article en français, cliquez ici. In these heartbreaking days, while we are committed to redesign the entire structure of our community and practice, I wanted to add an element that may provide some historical perspective for our considerations.  This is not meant to in any way dictate what we decide to do; those directions will be shaped by the community input to the Process Team, and by auspicious coincidence.  Certainly, I have no idea or recommendations for the future.  But the Buddhist and Shambhala teachings are often predicated on the question of what we are to accept and what to reject. As a student of my root guru, the Vidyadhara Chögyam Trungpa Rinpoche, I have tried in ... continue
