Event description

Description

So many of us long to take effective action on climate crisis and injustice, but become paralyzed with fear and grief with the vastness of the scope of these challenges. Facing the ecological crisis and injustice of our times can feel deeply overwhelming. But finding tools to face, feel, and transform this overwhelm can be relieving, empowering, and transformative. Coming together in community practice can strengthen us and give us the energy to make change and be truly present to our families and world.

Using The Work That Reconnects practices developed by Joanna Macy and drawing on longstanding wisdom traditions, folks will gather to deeply feel, process and move through grief to empowerment. This form of group work allows us to transmute and release our pain, fear and grief so we can show up for our ourselves, our families and our communities with presence and courage.

While this monthly gathering will offer tools for emotional support, it is not psychotherapy.
