Row Your Boat


The 3 p.m. class.

The Buddha said the ‘middle way,’ the path between deprivation and overindulgence, leads to liberation. This is the path we all must take in order to not only cease the destruction of our world, but also to bring an end to our own suffering.

I wrote these poems while traveling through eastern Australia between January and April of 2013 with the School For International Training (SIT) study abroad program Sustainability and Environmental Action. The book was submitted as part of an Independent Study Project on Buddhism and environmental sustainability.

The intention of “The Middle Way” is to create awareness of the heart, mind and connection to nature, as well as motivate action for environmental change.
