Embodied Climate Action Workshop: Wild Walking with the Gardens
Tamara Yakaboski, PhD

Saturday, July 13 | 1–3 p.m. | $10 In–person

Much of the sorrow and suffering today is rooted in our disconnection from Nature as we live in a world of noise and chaos. A return to place and belonging with the land through devotion and deep play of wild walking. Through interacting with Nature and guided activities, we will explore what moves you, what draws your attention, and play with your capacity to be immersed in all your senses and felt sensations.

Embodied Climate Action Workshop: Gathering the Seeds of Critical Hope
Tamara Yakaboski, PhD

Saturday, Sept. 28 | 1–3 p.m. | $10 In–person

Autumn is the time that garden plants prepare their seeds for dispersal. Seeds represent critical hope. By taking action to disperse seeds, there is trust that seeds will find grounding and spring will come again. In playing with this metaphor, this workshop will explore how we gather our own seeds of critical hope in the face of eco-anxiety and ecological grief so that we can then grow our climate action. We will explore how it is critical to pair emotions with action.
