Hooked! : Buddhist writings on greed, desire, and the urge to consume( Book )

5 editions published in 2005 in English and held by 370 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

At one time or another, most of us have experienced an all-consuming desire for a material object, a desire so strong that it seems like we couldn't possibly be happy without buying this thing. Yet, when we give in to this impulse, we often find ourselves feeling frustrated and empty. Advertisers, of course, aim to hook us in this way, and, from a global perspective, our tendency to get hooked fuels the rampant over-consumption that is having a devastating impact on the world's stability and on the environment. According to the contributors to this unique anthology, Buddhism can shed valuable light on our compulsions to consume. Craving and attachment?how they arise and how to free ourselves of them?are central themes of Buddhist thought. The writings in this volume, most of which have never been previously published, offer fresh perspectives and much-needed correctives to our society's tendency to believe that having more will make us happier. Hooked! includes a range of writings on how to apply Buddhist thought and ethics to understand and combat the problem of over-consumption as individuals and collectively. Contributors include popular Western teachers, Asian masters, scholars, and practitioners such as: Pema Ch?dr?n?on what is actually happening at the moment we're "hooked," and how to get beyond that. Joseph Goldstein?on how mindfulness training can help us stop "wanting to want." Bhikshuni Thubten Ch?dr?n?on how consumer mentality influences spiritual practice. Judith Simmer-Brown?on how cultivating spiritually based activism and compassionate action can help us address the negative effects of consumerism. Rita Gross?on how understanding moderation can curb overconsumption. Santikaro Bhikkhu?on practicing generosity in a consumer world
The attentive heart : conversations with trees by Stephanie Kaza( Book )

5 editions published between 1993 and 1996 in English and held by 265 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Towering redwoods, arching maples, sturdy oaks - the beauty and presence of trees have moved many to sing their praises. But despite a rich heritage of appreciation for trees, forests are disappearing at an alarming rate. "The Attentive Heart" offers a refreshing approach to the trees around us, providing inspiration and insight about our relationships with trees. Stephanie Kaza has drawn on her years of experience as a naturalist and mediator in meeting trees. This book is based in the Zen practice of shikantaza - just sitting. Kaza spent time in silence, close to trees, doing her best to be simply present with the tree as Other. Her persistence with this experiment allowed her to investigate possibilities for intimate and spirutual relationships with non-human beings
Mindfully green : a personal and spiritual guide to whole earth thinking by Stephanie Kaza( Book )

4 editions published between 2008 and 2010 in English and held by 232 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

There has been a flood of attention given to the small actions we can take to live in a more environmentally friendly way--from reducing water use to conserving electricity. Building an eco-responsible lifestyle is a great first step, but to effect real change in the world we must learn how to look beyond our own lives and connect to the larger issues. In this unique book, Stephanie Kaza makes that big-picture connection for us. Influenced by her background in Buddhism, she offers a simple philosophy for engaging in environmental action in real, practical, and effective ways. Readers will find new methods to evaluate their own relationship to the environment, think more deeply about their impact on the natural world, engage in environmental change, and make living green a personal practice that comes from compassion and true conviction.--From publisher description
