Event Description

In accordance with University protocol regarding COVID-19 intended to ensure the health and well-being of the community, this event is CANCELED. We hope to reschedule in the future when it is prudent to do so.

Eco-anxiety is the fear we feel (sometimes acutely, sometimes as an underlying dread) about the climate crisis. Join in a discussion of how you experience eco-anxiety, and how mindfulness can help us respond to it. We’ll discuss managing worry loops, staying compassionate with difficult feelings and purpose-based coping, as well as practice a mindfulness meditation. 

Please make sure to RSVP as space is limited and so we can order the right quantity for lunch. 

Open to all undergraduate and graduate students.

Please RSVP by March 5th, 12pm to Joe Cooper and note any dietary restrictions.

*Please email Joe if you have any questions about accessibility or if he can support your accessibility needs.

This event is part of the series "Navigating the Climate Crisis & Eco-Distress" co-sponsored by TigerWell and Counseling & Psychological Services and the Office of Sustainability.
