This is a group for people who are experiencing feelings of loss, grief, anger, hopelessness, despair or distress caused by the impacts of climate change and ecological decline, and by the expectation of an even more frightful future.
Most of us are often experiencing these emotions alone and rarely open up to friends and acquaintances.
Sometimes we are paralyzed, both stuck emotionally, and in how we live our lives, seemingly unconcerned and oblivious.
Topics we wish to explore in this Meetup group include:
The inner self: How can we be quiet with ourselves and with our fellows, and learn to integrate gratitude for what nourishes us and pain for what seems to slip away, for ourselves, our elders, and for younger generations?
The outer self: How can we reorient ourselves to what we are discovering and learning?
The social self: Where can we step in to help repair our world and protect our local community? What local groups are already doing good work that we can join or otherwise support? How can we work politically to bring all peoples together to address this global existential threat?
