The Ground Beneath Our Hearts

As we confront the alarming manifestations of climate disruption and local environmental challenges, we become acutely conscious of both our love for the places and species in our lives and of our sorrow for what’s happening to them. In this workshop, we explore how surviving—and actually thriving—in hard times means holding the balance between these two deep and valid emotions. We’ll offer a simple practice for staying connected with the places we care about during hard times. Participants will also take a short reflective solo walk outside on the grounds of the Marin Center to look for signs of nature’s balance around the lake, the wetland, even in the weeds in the sidewalk cracks. With: Polly Howells, co-leader of Reclaiming Our Lives, Reclaiming Our Earth workshops; Trebbe Johnson, founder/Director of Radical Joy for Hard Times.
