Healing the Earth & the Right Livelihood Revolution
Matthew Heck, Co-Owner, Service & Monitoring Manager, Namaste Solar
Interface Host: Stan Adamson
About the Presentation:
It is said that one must heal one’s self before can heal others. The Mahatma Gandhi said to be the change you wish to see in the world. There are opportunities for melding both into what Buddhists refer to as Right Livelihood.
As green power generation and other clean technologies gain wider deployment, as globalized commerce fueled by carbon emissions moves towards localized/distributed systems, as people begin to rediscover the wisdom of ways past, many are finding ways to heal the Earth and make a living at it.
Come explore Right Livelihood and how its principles can be integrated into making a living (free(r) of ahimsa or not-harming), and how to apply this way to find deeper satisfaction in your work, heal yourself and the Earth.
