About the event
In a time of environmental crises, facing fearful change, climate grief, and eco-anxiety, the wild, wonderful, and wounded world invites us to connection and engagement that can renew advocates’ spirits and offer inspiration and guidance for their work. Spiritual practice in nature and mindful time engaging the natural world offer a needed salve for anxious minds and heavy hearts while sharing profound wisdom and lessons of resilience, healing, and hope for those who seek to preserve, protect, and restore Earth, our home.
Led by our Program Director, Payton Hoegh, and our Executive Director, Beth Norcross, this workshop will guide participants in direct experience of healing spiritual practices in nature through:
- Introducing advocates to spiritual practice in nature as a way of nurturing love for and connection with local ecosystems
- Guiding participants in mindful practice to experience nature's gifts of wisdom and renewal
- Creating space for dialogue on the complex emotions that surround the work of climate advocacy
- Sharing tools for naming, engaging, and responding to burnout, climate grief, and eco-anxiety
- Providing a set of clear and accessible exercises that can be engaged individually or communally in nature as a practice of self-care and spiritual sustenance
- Offering resources for sustained, immersive experiences in the natural world to nurture life-giving balance to reinvigorate practical efforts for climate justice
