Engaging With Our Feelings About Climate Disruption: Loss, Anger, Injustice

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule, view media, leave feedback and see who's attending!

The workshop will explore how we can honor our feelings of loss & anger at the extinctions & social injustices wrought by massive climate disruption. We will begin by sharing practices that allow us to connect to our embodied experiences of the natural world, & through this embodiment connect our health & wholeness with that of the planet. We will invite participants to express appreciation & gratitude for earth, sea, forests, & mountains, as they create a healing circle that allows them to bear witness to their feelings about the unraveling of the natural environment. We will then invite participants to change perspective by looking back on the present from the perspective of 100 years into the future. Finally, we will discuss strategies to overcome the paralyzing melancholia that inhibits our conversations & actions about losing Earth. As a historian & as an economist, we offer disparate (yet related) ways to approach these topics, & invite other participants to share insights from their own disciplines.
