The day will including a talk on Green Buddhism with Sh-zr Khandro and Namgyal Dorje.

There will be opportunity to purchase signed copies of Skys book on the day, with all proceeds going to the Drala Jong rural retreat centre appeal (visit drala-jong.blogspot.com for more details).

Planet as Self is a book which focuses on the key question Why don't people love the Earth?
Why, when we know what must be done, do we deflect and argue, doubt and contend? But we can learn new ways of understanding and appreciating our world and develop beliefs more suitable for this century.

Planet as Self calls for an Earth-based spirituality. Earthen Spirituality teaches us that we have no need to go anywhere to be with the powerful and sustaining spirit of the Earth.

What people are saying about the book:
An incisive and most helpful guide for developing an Earth-centred spirituality that is integral and holistic, collaborative rather than competitive, enabling us to become partners and co-creators of Gaia.
Ursula King, Professor Emerita of Theology and Religious Studies
University of Bristol.

Sky McCain is generously gifting all profits from the book sale to the appeal, and is sponsoring the creation of a garden at the Drala Jong centre.
