|Engaging With World Tragedy
by Eric Kolvig (2011)
With our minds we make our world.
Our minds have made most of our tragedies: personal ones like ruined relationships, social ones like injustice and war, and global ones like earthquakes and climate change.
Eric Kolvig suggests how we can master these all-important minds, moment by moment, in order to create wellbeing on our planet, and also in our societies and in our personal lives.
A practitioner of socially engaged Buddhism who was born and raised in New Hampshire by his Cook Islands mother and Danish-American father, he has been teaching in the vipassana Buddhist tradition since 1985, leading meditation retreats and giving public talks around the United States.
Eric has a particular interest in grassroots dharma, building spiritual community in democratic, non-authoritarian ways.
He is interested in the special value of spiritual practice in the natural world and lives in a rural intentional community in northern New Mexico.
