Sitting For the Climate: From the Touching the Earth Collective (part 1)

Filed under Community Articles
This invitation comes from the Touching the Earth Collective, a group of Shambhala environmentalists. Part 2 will include photos and stories from this demonstration. 
Dear sangha, dear meditators,
We would like to invite you and ask for your support during a full day meditation session on Rudolfplatz, that we want to dedicate to climate and “less is more”. On the 20th of September, as you might have heard and can read in the attached link from “Globale Climat Strike” (https://de.globalclimatestrike.net/), a big demonstration all over the world and also here with us in Cologne!
