Event Details

Saturday November 21
Expressing Climate Grief (7 – 9 pm GMT) (interpreted into French and Spanish)

Unhealed grief, fear, and frustration about the climate emergency affects our initiative and hope for the future. Our unexpressed emotions interfere with our ability to bring our intelligence and energy to effectively respond to the climate crisis. The opportunity to openly express emotions about the damage to the earth and its inhabitants can release enormous thinking and action.
In this workshop we will:
★ Listen to each other in groups and pairs with awareness and caring
★ Learn the approaches used by Sustaining All Life (SAL) to heal from the emotions we experience in reaction to the climate crisis, increase our effectiveness in the climate justice movement, and prevent burnout
★ Learn tools to take back to their home communities and organizations to help others notice, feel, and release their climate grief and other emotions

SAL thinks big changes in society are needed to solve the climate emergency and restore the environment. We believe the environmental crisis cannot be resolved without ending racism, genocide toward Indigenous peoples, classism, sexism, and other oppressions. We think making these changes will require a large, powerful, and inclusive movement, spanning the globe.
We are working to address the barriers to building this movement. We offer tools of mutual support, engaged listening, and a process that frees people from the effects of hurts and oppression. We can also use these tools to remove many of the difficulties of working together. This personal work heals the internal damage from hurts and oppression and, as a result, people are able to think more clearly about the climate crisis, build and strengthen alliances, and fully enjoy working together to set the world right. This healing work also builds courage and stamina, and the confidence that we can create a just, sustainable future for everyone.
