Critical Dharma for Thinking Minds
ENGAGE! IS THE DHARMA OF CRITICAL ENGAGEMENT, social, scientific and spiritual. Our mission is to bring about awakening through the exploration of our deep interconnectedness, our interbeing with the phenomenal world.
Engage! is looking for inspired activists to offer posts, articles, poetry, photos, videos, drawings, animations, music, song, and spoken word to the magazine. Send us your raw and beautiful stuff to firstname.lastname@example.org
The mission of Engage! is to educate, inform and inspire readers, and to create conditions for social transformation. Engage! employs critical dharma to create a critical consciousness about the challenges we face.
Engage! takes the approach of Buddhist Naturalism, that is, conceptual work influenced by Buddhism but connecting the dharma to a larger world of knowledge, meaning and experience. Engage! draws secular principles and teachings from Buddhism and other wisdom traditions that can be applied broadly, in a non-sectarian way, to challenges in our world.
Engage! is concerned with every possible issue in the realm of social and ecological justice, but is not limited to that. Engaged Dharma means full engagement with environment and society, full engagement with arts and culture, full engagement with relationships, full engagement with all aspects of social justice.
Educate-Agitate-Organize! Engage! follows the legacy of Dr. B. R. Ambedkar whose life work was to end the inequality and divisions of caste, race, gender and class. Engage! seriously engages with anti-racist and feminist work, deconstructing and dismantling white supremacy, colonialism, patriarchy and heteronormativity. We engage in ally work as a practice of critical solidarity.
