Empowering Ourselves and Others in a Changing Climate


June 15 - August 31, 2022


Climate change is a scientific and technological challenge, yet how each of us faces it is profoundly personal.

 

The ecological and climate crises affect us emotionally, psychologically, and spiritually. Although you may wish to engage in the creation of a sustainable world, if you feel discouraged, hopeless, and anxious, you may feel too overwhelmed to even begin. Psychologists across the world are recognizing a rise in difficult and complex emotions people experience as a response to ecological destruction and climate change. Terms like eco-grief and climate anxiety are increasingly used to articulate these emotions.

 

In this remote workshop, we will explore the impact of the ecological and climate crises on our personal experience and work towards finding individual and collective empowerment, inspiration, and courage to face these issues. We will also explore ways we wish to be a part of solutions and co-creating a resilient, thriving future for all. We take a holistic, and broad view of what "solutions" might even mean, and how we may be a part of bringing them into being. 

 

This 12-week workshop is interdisciplinary by design and includes some of the most powerful ideas and practices I have experienced over years of environmental work, including research from eco-emotion researchers like Ashlee Willox, concepts from activists like Joanna Macy, and practices from teachers like Thich Nhat Hanh. I incorporate ideas from prominent thinkers and draw on ecopsychology, meditation and mindfulness, deep ecology, Buddhism and Taoism, activism, justice, indigenous ways of knowing, and ethics. I share resources, tools, and techniques that you can use long into the future. 


This offering includes: 

  • 12-weeks of content
  • 7 live remote meetings, each 1.5 hours long
  • Being a part of an intimate, encouraging group of lovely humans
  • Having support from me through this process in whatever way is helpful
  • Each week you will receive exercises, resources, concepts, and content to help you explore your own experience, and grow your eco-resiliency to empower yourself and others to co-create a better world
  • Automatic invite to the monthly Eco-resiliency Gathering, which provides a less-structured way to interact and meet like-minded folks
  • Since the materials are delivered directly to you, you can have life-long access, so you can return to them whenever you wish
