2013-02-07 From Me to We 66:43
  Bob Doppelt
Bob presented five transformational commitments, which are grounded in psychology, ecosystem science, and dharma principles, that are the basis of the shift in consciousness needed to rescue the planet and our lives. He distributed a handout that outlines five natural laws, the related Buddhist principles, and the five commitments, which you can refer to as you listen to his talk. The five commitments are designed to help us shift from a sole focus on ‘me’ to prioritizing the broader ‘we,’ encouraging us to make a personal commitment to protect all life on the planet, free our minds from outdated and erroneous beliefs, and begin to think and act sustainably.
