Maia Duerr: Socially Engaged Dharma: Roots and Shoots

Episode Description: Maia Duerr begins her talk by describing how she relates to the tempestuous headlines we often see, and acknowledges her anger, grief, panic, and anxiety. She urges us to sit with those feelings, and we take a moment of silence for the people of Manchester, Syrian refugees, and those without access to healthcare. After posing the question “How do we respond to these challenging times?” Maia urges us to look to our Buddhist lineage for the answer; our practice is about collective, rather than personal liberation. She ends her talk by covering Roshi Bernie Glassman’s Three Tenets and her own Mandala of Socially Engaged Buddhism.
