Drawing from the teachings of Joanna Macy, Charles Eisenstein, Thich Nhat Hanh, and other sage guides, we’ll build psychological and spiritual frames for viewing climate reality and explore ways to process the heavy emotions that accompany the shift we are making as we live into our visions of Transition. Our authenticity - based in our humanness, emotional life, talents, vulnerabilities, and vision - is one of our great strengths.
