How do we face the enormity of climate disaster and ecological collapse with honesty, courage and a loving heart?
Our world is in crisis. When we look in the face of runaway climate change, ecosystem collapse, and the many interconnected injustices, we might feel overwhelmed, alone, afraid, or even numb. In this 6-week community of practice, we come together to feel the truth of what’s happening in our world, share in embodied mindfulness and earth connection practices to ground us, and support each other to take compassionate action.
We’ll use the framework of earth activist and Buddhist teacher Joanna Macy’s “The Work That Reconnects” to explore how to honor our pain for our world while still cultivating gratitude, connection, joy, and love to sustain us in taking whatever action is ours to take toward a life sustaining society.
Through experiential, contemplative and relational practices we’ll learn from each other and create a space of mutual exploration and support. In community, we’ll compost our pain for the world and transform it into fuel for loving action toward our vision of the world our hearts know is possible.
