Every Monday 3:00-3:45pm in room 1638 of the Du Bois Library, we gather for “Holding Earth: Mindful Climate Action.” Yesterday we listened to excerpts of this NYT article, “Drought and War Heighten Threat of Not Just 1 Famine, but 4.” Then we gazed for 5 minutes at slide #2.
This exercise was inspired by Thomas Huebl, who explains more here (3:45 minutes)
Says Huebl, “This is a spiritual practice that helps us to expand our awareness into the bigger We-space. We relate to current world events – and often this is experienced as ‘negative news’. That means this event triggers in me so much discomfort that I want to turn away. If enough people are able to perceive and feel what we are doing to each other right now on the planet – that is the basis for a change.”
The Talking Truth goal here: To respond to climate change and co-create change from our conscious awareness.
