Interactive Session – The Power of Awe: Awakening Humanity and Reconnecting to Our Sacred Relationship with Nature

The emotion of awe can help us address some of humanity’s biggest challenges, be they climate change, racism or political strife. The reason is that, when we experience awe, we feel more connected, kinder, and more caring toward others and all life on Earth. Awe opens our minds and hearts. Awe is in us and surrounds us all the time, but most of us don’t know how to access it. In this 75-minute experiential session, based on evidence-based research, we will learn to access awe in the ordinary moments of our lives, resulting in improved health for us and the people we connect with. Facilitated by Michael Amster, MD, researcher at the UC Berkeley Greater Good Science Center, and longtime yoga and mindfulness meditation teacher.
