Climate change is probably the greatest humanitarian and environmental challenge the world faces today. How do we accept and adapt to climate change positively? As Buddhists, we can positively contribute to minimizing the impacts of climate change by integrating compassion while addressing this challenge.

Reusable bottles, and certainly there couldve been real washable coffee cups,etc. it's a cohesive message that's visual as well for an audience. Do as I say and do...

....when caught smoking yet again by his "disciples" Ajahn Chah is reported to have said something like:" You are lucky that I am not perfect, otherwise you'd never look for the Buddha in your own mind."....

"Develop a mind so filled with love it is like empty space." Thank you, Sharon. Like your god daughter, I will walk around reminding myself of that thought.

I enjoyed both of these. The best teaching I got is, I think, to listen to my body and not my mind when I evaluate what I really need. The body is indeed more honest about that question. Also the fact that we are all interconnected. Thanks for these teachings!

I like the interplay between these two seemingly disparate human beings. Then when we find out they are separate godparents to the same child, it makes the fact that they are sitting there together, each with their own body of knowledge/experience to bring to this session, much more interesting because we can only wonder at the depth of their relationship with each other and with their community/peers. It's nice. It's communal. It's serious. It's beautiful. I, too, noticed the water bottles and Starbucks coffee, but they are so much a part of our culture that I didn't think twice about them. My bad. Still, let's focus on the message, not the medium. The medium is the massage.

I wholeheartedly agree. It would be very nice if someone from the Festival organization would give a reply.

Dear Sharon, I love listening to you but all the way through I am equally concentrating on all those disposable things on the table to your left.... Doesn't that contradict with your message? Perhaps Starbucks is sponsoring some of these activities, as this wasn't the first time Starbucks was visible during this film festival....
