Meditation Session

UCC Green Campus is delighted to launch our Eco Grief program for the Academic Year 22/23 with a Guided Meditation session hosted by The Green Step on Tuesday 6th September from 5-6pm in Room 401 Lucy Smith The Hub, UCC.

These monthly guided meditation sessions and mindful practices are suitable for beginners and offer a chance to relax, reflect and regenerate.

In addition to our guided meditation sessions we are delighted to bring many more activities to offer a space for students, staff and climate activists in our community to enjoy as we process and navigate the climate emergency. The aim of these events are to help you feel a little lighter, energized and have a few new tools to manage your climate anxiety through the use of guided, earth based meditations that can help you find peace and calm within yourself.

Details of our events are below with 

  • Foraging and nature walk along the banks of the river to support students and staff to learn about and understand the ecosystem they are studying and living in while at UCC.
  • Blissdance - a trauma-informed somatic dance experience - offered with gentle guidance based on the framework of Joseph Campbell's Hero’s Journey. This session is designed to support staff and students move through deep-seated and powerful emotions in a mindful and fun way, and also help build community relationships.
  • Guided Sound Baths for deep full-body relaxation to support activists calm their nervous systems and emotional stresses.

This is a space for students, staff and climate activists in our community to share as we process and navigate the climate emergency. The aim of these events are to help you feel a little lighter, energized and have a few new tools to manage your climate anxiety through the use of guided, earth based meditations that can help you find peace and calm within yourself.

We believe that self-care is climate care.
