Event description
A gathering of people united by our love for all, and a safe space to address feelings such as grief, fear, anger or despair.

About this Event

It can be overwhelming to live with the knowledge about the realities of climate change, loss of biodiversity, species extinction and other human impacts can be very disheartening.

We are alive at an extraordinary moment in time: a time of uncertainty and crisis in ecology and human societies, and also a time of possibilities. Many of us are seeking ways to reconnect to our living earth with creativity, courage, and through collective action.

For those who are awake to the current climate injustice, inequalities and all that is at risk, time among community who care is important for the sustainability of our work. Our own wellbeing also deserves attention and nourishment,along with the planet and all her species.

We invite you to join us for a half day gathering of people united by our love for nature and love for all, with a vision of a planet based on justice and equality. We offer a safe space to address feelings such as grief, fear, anger or despair through activities focused on connection with others and mindfulness.

Our workshop builds on the ‘Transforming Despair: Reconnecting for Sustainable Activism’ gathering of June 2019. Anybody who feels the need to deepen the conversation and address their ‘climate feelings’ is welcome. We acknowledge inspiration from “The Work That Reconnects”, developed by Joanna Macy.

This is a volunteer-led event and any small proceeds will be donated.

When: Sun 10 November, 1-4.30pm with afternoon tea provided

Cost: $15 full time workers / $10 others

If you are unable to afford the fee, please contact us. We have volunteer opportunities available.

We are grateful for support from The Wilderness Society and Climate Ready Communities/The Red Cross.
