David Loy: Healing Ecology :: Langara on March 7

February 9, 2010

Buddhist scholar and activist David Loy lists key points from his talk Healing Ecology:

“Human civilization is a construct … This construct has led to a collective sense of alienation from the natural world, which causes dukkha … This dukkha involves a collective anxiety about what it means to be human – that is, a fundamental confusion about what we as a species should be doing … Our response to that alienation and anxiety – the collective attempt to secure or ‘self-ground’ ourselves technologically and economically – is making things worse … We cannot ‘return to nature’ because we have never left it, but we need to realize our nonduality with the rest of the biosphere, and what that implies … This will resolve our collective existential problem about what it means to be human. With us the biosphere becomes self-conscious. Our role today is to heal it, and thereby ourselves.”

  1. To go to the Campus Guides & Maps page on the Langara website, click here.

    Langara College is at 100 West 49th Ave (near Ontario). Newberry Hall (Room A130) is on the northeast corner of the campus, in Academic Building Complex A. If you enter the main college entrance on the north side of the building, turn left and walk a few paces, you’re right there.

    There is no charge for parking on campus at the weekends, but please note that the parking lots are locked at 7 pm. (The event ends at 6 pm.)

    Note also that there are no reserved seats at this event, so give yourself plenty of time to get a good one! (Doors open at 3:30 pm.)

    Langara is on the Ontario Bikeway – and is well served by transit.
