Despair and Empowerment Practices for Climate Activists

Aug. 25, 2019, 2 p.m.

Sun. Aug 25, 2-5pm
Old Cambridge Baptists Church
1151 Mass Ave, Harvard Square, Cambridge

Climate activists face fear, anger, sadness, and despair on a daily basis. We are often so busy taking action that we don’t give our hearts enough space. This afternoon gathering will be a place to bring our broken hearts, to hold them in compassion, and to source healing and energy to go forward. The workshop will include gratitude practices, a despair and empowerment ritual, and connection with each other. We will leave with tools to nourish ourselves and increase our resilience.

Led by Ian Mevorach and Anne Goodwin, activists and facilitators of the Work That Reconnects, a body of practices designed to restore the resilience of weary activists and build a regenerative culture. www.workthatreconnects.org

Free of charge (A donation for the use of the space will be requested.) Questions? Contact ian@commonstreet.org or annegoodwin@comcast.net
