Encountering Climate Change workshop: DENVER, CO
Althea Center
Denver, CO
Share this event:



Ma'ikwe Ludwig, the executive director of the Center for Sustainable and Cooperative Culture at Dancing Rabbit Ecovillage, and Carolyn Baker, psychologist and writer at Speaking Truth to Power, are inviting you to steer directly in to the emotional and spiritual morass that is climate change, and then step pro-actively into action.

Climate Disruption is the most urgent challenge of our time, and yet many of us are struggling with overwhelm, paralysis and a deep desire to simply check out in the face of it all. How do we even respond to something so big and fundamental, and with such huge unknowns? How do we work through the fear, anger, sadness and even guilt that come up for many of us when we try to think about the coming changes?

This half-day workshop features the following exercises and explorations:

- Joanna Macy-inspired witnessing and moving through emotional blockages
- Resting in compassion for the world and self
- Reconnecting with nature and understanding what is at stake
- Acting on behalf of what we love, and listening for what needs to happen
- Personal choices in the face of climate change
- How we relate to political and economic actions
- Holding space for others

WHERE: Althea Center, Denver, CO
WHEN: April 10th, Sunday 1-5pm
COST: $40-90 sliding scale
