"Neuroscience and Nature: Finding Balance in Turbulent Times"
NOVEMBER 11 ZOOM WEBINAR
Both science and experience tell us that when humans are in relationship with the rest of nature, there are positive impacts. Stress and anxiety go down. Connectedness, awe, creativity, and wonder go up. The planet benefits from gentler and more respectful human action. Interaction with nature is always possible, even in colder and darker seasons--it just takes a little more creativity and intentionality. Join us for an experiential webinar presented by Corie Washow to learn more about how a deeper relationship with nature can help the people and planet move through these turbulent times. We’ll look at what neuroscience tells us about why and how this works, learn specific practices to deepen nature connection and well-being, and leave with extensive follow up resources with which to continue exploration throughout the coming months.
