Climate Grief & Empowerment

A monthly meetup that uses practices from “The Work That Reconnects.”

Participants age 18+ meet on the 2nd Saturday of each month, 10am – 11:45am. RSVP here

Using practices from “The Work That Reconnects,” an interactive group process developed by Joanna Macy, and drawing on longstanding wisdom traditions, folks will gather to deeply feel, digest, and move through grief to empowerment.

Ask yourself: 

  • How am I feeling about climate change these days?
  • Am I even letting myself feel?
  • Is it too big to process?

Being overwhelmed by climate-related emotions is a shared reality. We can continue to act from a grounded state when we process these experiences together.

Important Details

  • We meet virtually due to COVID-19.
  • This group is offered to the general public free of charge.
  • You are welcome to attend as many or as few offerings as you like.
  • For those with financial resources, donations are welcomed and used to assist us in compensating the facilitators for their time and energy.

Make a secure donation HERE.

While we have named this group Climate Grief and Empowerment, climate is but one doorway into an intersectional understanding of the current social and ecological crises in which we find ourselves—crises with roots deeply entangled in colonization, white supremacy, patriarchy, and our current economic system.

“The Work That Reconnects” process offers both structure and flexibility. We will move through four stages during our time together: Gratitude, Honoring Our Pain for the World, Seeing with New and Ancient Eyes, and Going Forth.

This form of group work allows people to transmute and release pain, fear, and grief so we can show up for our ourselves, our families, and our communities with presence and courage.

Mission

Hold gatherings for folks to emotionally process the crises of our shared moment in history, with the ultimate goal of reconnecting and empowering our communities.

This group is a project of both 350 Seattle and Climate Action Families.
