Dharma Talks / Anger, Despair and Burnout: a Dialogue

Sr Hiến Nghiêm, Christiana Figueres, Shantum Seth

This Panel Sharing was recorded on June 5, 2024 in New Hamlet, Plum Village France. It is the 4th talk of the series of talks given in the 2024 June Retreat held in Plum Village, France, with the theme: “”Ancient Wisdom for Modern Times: Applied Ethics.”

Sr True Dedication, Shantum Seth and Christiana Figueres explore:
– how the Buddha faced war and violence in his own time, the principle of “”ahimsa”” and Gandhian Nonviolence.
– how as activists they have handled imprisonment, anger, despair and burnout
– how to handle people who attack and undermine you
– how to practice with polarization and division
– insights around the victim-perpetrator dynamic
– the role of sanghas as sanctuaries and whether Plum Village Buddhism is still “”Engaged””?

Shantum Seth is a Dharmacharya (Dharma Teacher) and co-founder of the Plum Village Tradition in India (see: https://ahimsatrust.org/)
Christiana Figueres is a student of Thich Nhat Hanh, climate leader and Costa Rican diplomat (see: https://www.globaloptimism.com/christiana-figueres)
