Ekodo approaches environmental and social action as sacred practice. Harnessing the power of compassion, we bear witness to ecological and human suffering, and act to alleviate it.
Ekodo links with the original intention of the Zen martial arts, as the skillful minimization of harm based on the realisation that the whole world is our truest self. Therefore, defending ecosystems and communities is ultimately self defense.
