Climate Change and environmental breakdown “over-reach” is much more evident now than it was even a few years ago. We hear about and experience the effects of more severe climate events, and we are all challenged to adjust to changing realities.
In the face of such large challenges, it is common to shut down, get numb, feel overwhelmed and helpless. Acknowledging grief about the changes and losses can free us up to engage in the actions we can take as individuals and collectively.
Grief has been spoken of as an “initiation” that can transform us and enhance our path to awakening. It is also not meant to be done alone. Communal grief rituals have been practiced in all cultures for support with processing grief.
A monthly group called “Holding Grief with an Open Heart” was created to offer a safe place to go deeper with sharing grief in community. Email [email protected] for information on how to join. Meetings occur the first Sunday of the month at 6:30 pm Eastern time.
