Our lives, along with all our stories and economies, depend on very thin and precious layers of air, water and soil on Earth.

If we were to pack all the usable freshwater on Earth, it would make a ball which is 50-100 miles in diameter – that is the distance between Manhattan and Connecticut. The topsoil, which along with billions of microbes and critters that inhabit it, makes agriculture possible, is at any given place only 2-8 inches deep and we have eroding it at rates much faster than its formation. Parts of atmosphere which we depend on for our existence  –  and which are accumulating unprecedented levels of greenhouse gases – are less than 20 miles high.

The story of human life on the planet can not be “saved” and healed without our realization that our biosphere, along with its intricate web of life-supporting processes, is really fragile and that we need to (and can) protect the biosphere to protect ourselves and our future generations. We feel that these realizations are a natural manifestation of our universal boundlessness.  As eco-dharma practitioners, here are a few of our recent public offerings (blogs, powerpoints, articles) on soil, water or air pollution, climate and agriculture.
