FIVE STORIES THAT 

CAN CHANGE THE WORLD

By Joanna Macy

Dharma Book Club Meetings

Take break and join us for a lunch-time get together to talk about books and authors who have written about the Dharma in a variety of genres. Each book will be covered in a single meeting. On occasion, authors will be  guest speakers at our meditation practice groups after our book club meeting.  Please sign up below to receive a reminder and a  Zoom link the day before our meeting. Participation in the discussion is optional for those who would prefer just to read our book selection or listen to comments.  All are welcome! 

About Our Current Book Selection

Eco-philosopher and best-selling author Joanna Macy, Ph.D., shares five stories from her more than thirty years of studying and practicing Buddhism and deep ecology. Gathered on her travels to India, Russia, Australia, and Tibet, these stories give testament to Joanna Macy’s belief that either humankind awakens to a new and deeper understanding of our interconnectedness with our planet and all its myriad forms of life or risks losing it. To bring about such a transformation of consciousness each and every one of us counts. “Pass It On” tells of encounters with individuals who share very personal stories of sudden awakening, unexpected awareness, and the co-mingling of joy and pain. Each story is imbued with the specific cultural flavor of the places where the stories originate, but all share that each individual counts in the global need for change and awakening. "Pass It On" provides an introduction to Joanna Macy’s work of “deep ecology” and “the great turning” and the deep interconnected nature of all beings.
