Novasutras’ ninth ecospiritual news livestream offered news about the rise in direct actions and opportunities to participate in sacred activism. Links below provide many different ways to respond to get engaged. One of our deepest actions may be to meditate together for peace and liberation of all beings. We will rise together in sacred activism, urging rapid response to quell the climate crisis and excessive violence, to reduce suffering, and to grow agaya and ubuntu for all.
Michelle suggested many actions you can take immediately (see links below). These range from getting informed, to signing petitions, to participating in nonviolent direct action. These actions may center on peace and liberation, on protecting sacred lands and waters, or on preventing the expansion of fossil fuel projects and all the harm they cause.
