Embodied Activism: Ecological Identity: Interdependent and Interconnected with Nature

Graphic showing Deah Robinson and details about her meditation course

Environmentalism is more than just a set of practices, it’s a way of being.

Ecological Identity, a term developed by Mitchell Thomashow, describes human identity in connection with nature and all life forms. In this course, we will explore and construct your ecological identity through personal inquiry, guided meditation, experiential exercises, and creative exploration. Deepening into awareness of one’s ecological identity can provide a grounding framework for the complex and challenging work of environmental advocacy. Sessions will include the introduction of a key concept, a guided meditation, and mindful dialogue.

Throughout September, Deah Robinson will be teaching these principles through guided meditation.

Days and times to be determined.
