Healing Climate Grief and Reclaiming Power for Action
This session offers participants the opportunity to notice and examine the range of emotions that they experience related to and resulting from the climate crisis, including grief, and the debilitating effects of carrying these unexpressed emotions. Participants will be encouraged to heal these emotions and release individual thinking, energy, and initiative to engage in actions that help to solve the climate emergency.

Unreleased painful feelings can drain our energy and interfere with our ability to bring our full intelligence to bear on the world around us. Emotional damage interferes with thinking well about what is to be done and acting appropriately and effectively—in this case, to end
We need opportunities to openly grieve about the damage being done to the Earth.
