Our ecological connectivity with plants and animals can provide a wellspring of knowledge and inspiration, enabling us to (re)discover strategies for living in the world, to grieve and heal after loss, and to re-align our thinking toward rootedness, kinship, community, and sustainability. This session will focus on building contemplative and creative practices to find meaningful connection in times of uncertainty. Join poet and professor of English Megan Kaminski in an introduction to eco-poetics, divination, and plant thinking.

This session co-sponsored by the Office of Sustainability and the City of Lawrence, the Watkins History Museum, and Paper Plains Literary Festival.
