Eco-consciousness and Spirituality
0.5 Credit

Hours per week:
  • Lecture/Discussion: 3

Based on the Earth Charter, this course asks students the following question: “How does my spiritual practice and/or my faith tradition affect the relationships I have with my fellow beings and with our planet?” This course privileges “eco-consciousness” which considers a planetary view of mental health; it will explore models and methods that go beyond traditional mental health frameworks to redefine mental health within the changing environmental and ecological contexts.
