Ecology Mindfulness Training

Aware of the suffering and degradation brought about by the unsustainable use of material resources on the Earth, we are determined to find ways to use resources with mindfulness and with a clear view to the long-term effects of their use on future generations and ourselves.  Knowing that collective suffering such as global climate change, deforestation, water scarcity, and the pollution of the air, soil, and waters arises from the daily actions of human beings, we are committed to transforming our way of life in order to bring about peace and harmony within our family, our local communities and ecosystems, and the world.              - Deer Park Ecological Initiative
