5 Schools Moving the Needle on Sustainability

The best classroom, and the richest cupboard, is roofed only by the sky.

5 Schools Moving the Needle on Sustainability

When it comes to formal education in schools and colleges, sustainability is too often boiled down to the technical study of environmental science in a classroom setting. But how do we teach our students to actually practice sustainable living? In the wake of the loosening environmental regulations in the United States, read about the efforts of these five colleges and universities which are committed not only to cultivating sustainable campuses and future environmental leaders, but also impacting the world in a deeper way. { read more }

Be The Change

What can you do today to take a step towards sustainable, ecologically responsible living? Perhaps opt to walk, bike, or take public transit during your commute, or grow edibles in your garden, or take the stairs instead of the elevator, or get to know and support your local businesses.

In the Beginning Was Love

At the center of our being is a point of nothingness... It is like a pure diamond, blazing with the invisible light of heaven. It is in everybody.

- Thomas Merton -

In the Beginning Was Love

"I think he [Robert Lax] understood the difference between hearing and listening, and he really emphasized the listening. In fact, one of the things he'd say when we walked along the Patmos shoreline was, 'Well, I'm going to go back up to my place now. There's a lot of listening I have to get to.'
And listening for what? I think for all the cosmic sounds, his own heart, his own soul.." A long-time friend of Trappist monk Thomas Merton, and an accomplished poet in his own right, Robert Lax spent the latter part of his life on a Greek island where he practiced his art, and exercised a profound influence on those who knew him. This interview with one of his close friends shares more. { read more }

As you touch the simple objects in your day, try to see the light within them at the point where their essence is beyond names, identities or categorization.

Hiking for Emails

 
Dr. Mahabir Pun first dreamed of connecting his small mountain village of Nangi to the internet after spending 6 years trekking 4 days every month to check his email. In 2001, he began a tireless campaign to connect his remote region in the Himalayas to the world. What served initially as a communications tool for these isolated communities has gone on to improve their quality of life in ways they never imagined. He now dreams of creating better educational opportunities and additional income-generating projects for rural Nepal.

The Gift of Cold

If we belong to the sun and its warmth, to the bud and the sprout, to the miraculous flower, we also belong to the wind, the naked branch, the cold.

- Fabiana Fondevila -

The Gift of Cold

"For our ancestors, winter was a test of survival," writes Fabiana Fondevila, a journalist, children's book author and ritual maker from Buenos Aires, Argentina. She remarks that "although ... many of us ... have heated homes, transportation and warm clothing, the season of bare trees takes us back to the experience of that first vulnerability." In this poignant essay on winter, Fondevila encourages us to reflect on what gifts winter brings us. "If we could for a moment disconnect from screens and lights, we would feel winter's whisperings calling us like it calls the seeds, the leaves, the sap descending, the animals changing coat, the grass that stops in its tracks and saves its strength for spring." { read more }

Be The Change

Take a moment to see the gift in a winter-like situation, person, or time in your life - one that leaves you feeling bare and vulnerable, and yet, more open-hearted.
