Conscious Sustainability during the Pandemic

Perhaps the pandemic has thrown your eco-habits out the window and you’ve become a quaran-consumer extraordinaire – or the reverse – maybe all of this time at home is making you even more motivated to go green. Regardless of where you are on the sustainably spectrum, join us as we explore ways to strengthen plans, learn how to overcome common obstacles, build capacity, and resist the allure of instant gratification. During this course we’ll take a unique and kind approach to identifying and working toward our sustainability goals by using simple mind-body practices that are easy to do at home.


This course is for all levels. You are welcome if you’re a beginner, a weathered eco-warrior, or somewhere in between. You are welcome whether or not you have an existing mind-body practice. We will work as a group, but the practices and your goals throughout the course will be personalized by and for you. During the 6 classes, we’ll will dive into our individual values and goals, touching upon our deepest beliefs about our place in the world, and we’ll balance it with fun, humor, connection, and support.

This course will be offered on Thursdays, 6:30pm – 8:00pm, September 10th through October 15th. This is a live virtual class held via Zoom. The meeting link will be sent in your registration confirmation email.

The 6-week series is being offered at Pay-What-You-Can $30-$120. The value of the series is $120. Sign-up here.

About Your Workshop Facilitator, Rose Brown:
I have been living without garbage since 2009 when I founded the Zero Garbage Challenge. Since then, I have jumped into other sustainability projects, including minimalism, reducing water and electric use, and living in a tiny house. I have worked for a number of environmental organizations in Charlottesville, including StreamWatch and The Nature Conservancy. I currently work as the Executive Director at Ozark Natural Science Center in Huntsville, Arkansas. The relaxing and playful themes of this course are shaped by my past work as a massage therapist, as well as years of practicing yoga, Zapchen, art, dance, and spending time outdoors.
