Whether you are new to activism, or a veteran organizer, so much bad news regarding the climate emergency is overwhelming and disheartening. Along with the cascading multiple traumas of pandemic, racism, fascism, and other ills, we are navigating our hearts, bodies, and minds through… well, A LOT. A justice movement is not just about “doing”. A central question, especially now, is “who shall I be, no matter what happens?”
This gathering is an introduction, an invitation, and an opportunity to share in community our hearts and wisdom as we navigate trauma, grief, anger, and other emotions together so that we may root down and take care of ourselves and each other through the storms. We will share stances and strategies for managing uncertainty in the storms of change.
This 90 minute online event is facilitated by Barbara Ford, teacher, artist, and longtime 350PDX volunteer. More information about Barbara here. 350PDX is re-invigorating the Climate Odyssey team to offer support for these times. Look for more offerings in the future.
