Working with Grief and Resilience
Starting Sunday, April 5!

If you are feeling grief associated with climate disruption, changing climate, species extinction, forest fires, water and food shortages, and the disproportionate impact on marginalized populations at this time, you are not alone. Join together in community for a twice a month online group which will create safe space to explore themes such as gratitude, grieving, activism, resilience and building capacity for staying present and awake in this time which portends both crisis and opportunity.

No ongoing commitment is required. The basis of the group will be contemplations, space for listening, sharing and discussion.

This will be a drop in facilitated zoom group the first and third Sunday evenings of each month from 7:00 – 8:30 pm EDT, accessed through the following link:  
Facilitator: Sara Demetry. Please email Sara ([email protected]) and she will send you the Zoom link.
