In this experiential talking group workshop, we will create a safe and confidential circle for participants to share their grief about the climate and ecological emergency, if they wish. The group will act as a receptacle to hear and hold each person’s feelings, and there will be no dialogue about what people share, each person is welcome to express what they need to.
This honouring of our pain for the world sits within a structure that also includes working with gratitude, understanding our place in the web of life, and envisioning our role in meeting the climate emergency. The work draws on meditation and Native American wisdom, as well as environmental science and systems theory.
Devised by eco-activist and Buddhist Joanna Macy, The Work That Reconnects recognises that our grief and despair is also our humanity. It can be a gateway to empowerment, environmental action, a deeper connection with nature, and with what it is to be human.
