Engaged Spirituality

Pandemic Care

On the spiritual path, we cannot separate our inner work from how we express ourselves in daily life. Engaged spirituality refers to the active engagement of our heart and awareness in service of the greater, collective good. It means responding to the crisis of climate change, to the suffering of racism and other forms of oppression and injustice, to economic inequality, to the violence between humans and against non-human animals.  Ultimately engaged spirituality honors the intrinsic sacredness of all living beings.
