UCSM Header

Telluride Summer College presents Finding Solutions:Ecopsychology and the Dharma.

June 26 from 6:00-8:00 pm Wilkinson Public Library FREE For an introduction to Telluride Summer College's ecopsychology course, join us for a discussion and film about a radical group of Korean Seon monks, inspired by the Avatamsaka Sutra, and desperate to defend the pure-land from corporate destruction, plowed over their monastic lands and built a farm. The farm turned into a permaculture training center that helped participants transform from the disconnected urban life in Seoul, to the deeply rural farming life in the mountains.
