Our planet is facing an unprecedented ecological crisis of our own doing: climate change. Catastrophe is looming, yet we seem unable to act quickly enough. What can we do? How can we become more motivated to correct our destructive behavior? This workshop explores the use of mindfulness practice to awaken a spirit of compassion and kindness for nature. We’ll provide a brief explanation of mindfulness, discuss why it is difficult for us to change our behavior, and guide participants through fun and easy mindfulness-based exercises around the theme of gratitude for nature.
