Climate Grief and Our Intersectional Traumas: An Interactive Session to Get a Taste of How We Can Access Belonging

Climate grief along with intersectional traumas resulting from legacies of social injustice shape our nervous systems and can shrink our ability to act wholeheartedly, but our hope in these complex, chaotic times lies in the fact that if we can “compost” our “hard” emotions (grief, rage, fear and confusion) and traumas, we can harness the resulting energy to fuel our movement for climate justice. The very fear and grief that can incapacitate us can be transformed into creativity and courage if we can ignite the power of vulnerability in our quest for belonging, healing, resilience and effective collective action. This interactive session is intended for those who desire a direct embodied experience of what it might mean to be witnessed or to see and hear another as we “compost” our grief and anxieties in the presence of a receptive, committed and compassionate community. Facilitated by Kritee Kanko and Ladybird Morgan.
