Get Involved with Compassion NYC for a Better NYC

There are many ways you can get involved in making New York a more compassionate, caring community. We’re about more than ‘volunteering.’  We’re about bringing Buddhist ethics of kindness and compassion to every moment, every action.  So, whether you’d like to join us serving food in a soup kitchen, at a protest for social justice, or even participating in one of our annual events, there’s something for you.  Below are just some of the ways you can be a part of bringing more compassion to NYC:

Ever felt the urge to save the planet, or just learn more about it?  Then the EcoSattva program is for you.  Expand your understanding of dukkha as it relates to the planet and the living beings on it.  Learn how to be an agent of environmental justice.  And affirm your commitment to living in harmony with nature–the nature of truth.  You’ll learn all this and more, gain friends and insight in One Earth Sangha’s EcoSattva training program!
