Grant(s) Awarded

In 2018, a grant in the amount of $10,000 was awarded to EarthNest Institute to film a documentary entitled “Meditate ‘08,” which took place in Denver, Colorado, during the Democratic National Convention in August of 2008. The documentary concentrated on the speakers, teachers, guides, participants, and events surrounding a meditation retreat which took place in the midst of the Democratic National Convention focusing on the potential impact which Buddhism and meditation may have upon society. The documentary focused on the intersection of thoughtful inward guidance on the one hand, and the often more one-sided or entrenched perspectives that tend to occur in high pressured daily life, as expressed, for example, in politics and the public media.
