Dekila Chungyalpa, part 2, The Loka Initiative

Sam Mickey

This week's episode of Spotlights is the second part of a two-part interview with Dekila Chungyalpa, Director of the Loka Initiative at the University of Wisconsin–Madison.  She discusses how the Loka Initiative supports faith-led environmental and climate efforts locally and around the world by helping build capacity of faith leaders and culture keepers of indigenous traditions, and by creating new opportunities for projects, partnerships, and public outreach. She also talks about the Healthy Minds Program app, which makes meditation readily accessible with simple practices that users can apply in daily life.
