Workshops

Workshops share our perspective on current aspects of the climate emergency and offer tools of engaged listening to free ourselves and others from emotional hurts that have interfered with our thinking and functioning. Our workshops are interactive, giving participants the chance to share their experiences and be listened to as well as listen to others. 

All workshops are two hours, unless otherwise indicated, followed by an optional one-hour support group.
