Embodied Climate Action Webinar
In this one-hour webinar, we’ll talk about how an embodied climate action approach that weaves together nature-based, somatic, and trauma-informed work can support our health and the Earth. An embodied climate action approach promotes better communication and connection so that individuals and communities build mindful wellbeing and resilience as a part of action plans.
Learning to connect to nature and our own feelings can help us process rage, anxiety, grief and so much more. Feeling embodied in this way can help us build the resiliency and clarity we need to take action that supports our wellbeing and the planet’s.
