As we experience the challenge of climate change, and of visible damage to the environment, our feelings are likely to vary from one person to another. In some the response will be more intellectual than emotional: worry or analysis for instance. In others the response will include painful feelings: anxiety, anger, fear or grief for example.
A problem with many of these emotions is that they can lead to a sort of resignation – a sense that there is not point in trying to create a better world for ourselves and descendents. Yes, all these reactions are valid – but we also, for the sake of our own wellbeing, need to cultivate positive responses such as hopefulness, appreciation and gratitude (to the planet on which we live). In this course we will look at all these aspects of eco emotions, together with exercises and information.
We will look at what positive things are being done to cope with the challenge of climate change and to build a sustainable future, what actions we an promote and support, what change we can encourage. This will include cultivating our identity as people who care about the planet.
I hope to see you there.
Anybody who wishes to relate to climate emotions in a healthy way. Also counsellors, teachers and others who work with people around these emotions.
The whole course is online so – anywhere and anytime. Also, most of the material is downloadable for your convenience.
You could read the daily material in less than an hour but what really matters is to do the short and easy practices. This is how you get to build its lessons into your life.
Don’t worry, the material will be there for you when you get back. Life is unpredictable so you can start late or take a break and come back.
I have practised mindfulness since the late 1980s, have taught mindfulness throughout Ireland and in London, have demonstrated mindfulness on ITV, RTE and TV3 and have had books on mindfulness published in several countries and languages. I provide public and corporate courses. My latest book is “Daily Calm – 100 daily reminders to help you build the mindfulness habit.” My aim is to make mindfulness easily accessible to people in their everyday lives.
