This conversation on Buddhism and Ecology addresses the notions of wild and rewilding from both internal and external perspectives; how can wildness be understood in relation to contemplative practice, as cultivation of the wilderness around us and a felt sense of the wild in ourselves? The conversation draws from the work of Gary Snyder, an award-winning writer, environmentalist, and Buddhist practitioner, and by using visual prompts from Kaisu’s environmental art.
