Grief, Grit and Gratitude: Developing Resilience in the Face of Pandemics and Climate Crises
Workshop is postponed – please contact the Gallery to be put on a contact list for a future date.
In the face of the growing social, political and ecological challenges of our era, it is important for us to have focused times and safe spaces to anchor our connection with what deeply matters within ourselves, our communities and the earth. This online workshop is based in part on the work of Joanna Macy. It will offer an opportunity for sharing the many emotions which arise: fear, grief, shock, anger, guilt, etc. as well as for grounding into gratitude, and finding new meaning and resiliency in order to move forward together in creating a world we want.
