The Circle is Expanding: The Gift of Climate Grief

(Please note: this is a two part workshop taking place on May 4 and May 7.)

Climate grief, also known as climate anxiety or eco-anxiety, is a psychological response to ecological loss driven by our unfolding climate crisis. It can be felt as profound sadness, helplessness, guilt, anxiety, rage, or numbness. An increasingly common condition, it’s becoming more widely recognized and accepted as a valid response to our changing world. This workshop will help us understand what climate grief is, why it’s important, and how it might become a positive force in our lives one that can motivate us towards greater joy, community, creativity, self-awareness, and social change.
