Mandala of Sacred Activism
In one of the very first pieces I wrote for this blog, “Outcastes as Activists: A Tantric Approach to Engaged Buddhism“, I introduced the idea of activism from a tantric perspective. I am now going forward with a more fully developed model, by constructing a Mandala of Sacred Activism. The Mandala is a model of Systems Theory. It includes the Panarchy Model of Complex Adaptive Systems (Growth, Conservation, Disintegration, Reorganization), and four modes of activism: Knowledge, Regeneration, Practice, and Opposition. I will explain the Mandala in text form in subsequent blog posts.

I love this Shaun. SO helpful to have visuals like this that connect the inner and outer work of sacred activism. Thank-you!
Hi Blake. I took a break from slogging through my dissertation to do more creative stuff. Now back to the slog.
