As participants engage in readings and discussion questions, they will share observations and reflections on our relationship to Earth, the threats of ecological imbalance, what we can do to create a paradigm shift and make lasting, impactful change, and what the role of higher education is in creating a future generation of Earth literate citizens.

Be Here: Northern Hearts Around the Lake 
Gather Together, Focus on Breath, Be Mindful and Notice

North Campus Lake, Northeast Corner (Intersection of Buildings 1 and 3)
Monday Mornings, 10 am

Be Here: Northern Hearts around the Lake is an opportunity for students, faculty, and staff to gather for a few minutes in quiet reflection and guided mindfulness. Together we let go of perceived stress, planning for future events, and the grit of daily living to relax, focus on the breath, let go of any distractions and perceived stressful thoughts to engage mindfully on the inherent beauty of North Campus and interconnectedness of all life.
