“The most complex, radical climate technology on Earth is the human heart and mind, not a solar panel.” – Paul Hawken
Cultivating a climate mind means learning how to show up as our most resilient and compassionate selves for the world that we love, and reconnecting again and again.
This work is essential whether you are on the frontlines of climate action or you are only beginning to realize the extent of our predicament.
We face a perfect storm of problems– a mounting “polycrisis” of political, economic, ecological, and social emergencies. Multiple forms of illness are poisoning our lives, our communities, and the planet. Band-aid solutions don’t work. What is the remedy? How are we to navigate this tumult, show up, and be of service?
The medicine is re-membering our connection with ourselves, each other, and the more-than-human world, and enlisting the “radical technology” of our hearts and minds.
This important five-week series weaves together the most current research on mindfulness and climate change, social justice principles of collective resilience, and guided meditation to explore the role of equanimity, attention, compassion, joy, and purpose in the polycrisis. In each session, we will balance learning, listening, and practice as we find ballast together.
