Explore the Mind and Heart
How do our minds work, and why do they do what they do? What does it mean to cultivate "heart" practices like compassion and forgiveness, and what's the benefit? Explore topics like these through the work of practioners, scientists, and organizations dedicated to alleviating suffering and enhancing well-being through knowing and growing the mind and heart.
Nourish the Body
Many of us have learned to see our bodies as enemies rather than allies, obstacles rather than resources. What would it be like to radically reclaim our relationship with our bodies; to get to know them, to listen to them, to learn to tend to them not out of fear or inadequacy, but out of care? Thankfully, there are people committed to just this, who can help light the way.
Connect with Nature
How often do you remember that we, as human beings, are not outside observers of nature, but rather part of it? It's no wonder that research has continued to demonstrate how connecting with the more-than-human world offers a host of benefits to our well-being - not to mention the planet's. Explore topics like forest bathing, nature advocacy, the intelligence of trees, and interconnection of individual, community, and planetary health.
Let's Talk About...
Death and dying. Grief and loss. These are topics we tend to avoid talking or even thinking about, and yet they are inarguably universal experiences, often made more painful through silence and isolation. What would it be like to courageously lean into the conversation around death and loss, to bring it out of the shadows, as a way of showing up for each other and ourselves in our most painful hours, and honoring the truth and fullness of our humanity?
