Deep Listening for Deep Adaptation
Time & Location
About the Event
This event is organised by the Deep Adaptation network.
Climate Change is a big topic. It affects us all, but in different ways. If you need to connect with others to work through your experiences around this issue, this is a safe place to share in small groups, with people from around the world. Many people arrive in these sessions in a state of bewilderment or desperation, having recently come to an awareness of the magnitude of the crisis that is unfolding. They return repeatedly because this space offers a quality of kindness, compassion, vulnerability and support that is counter to so many other debates. This gathering may be for you if you:
- have recently become awake to the reality of the unfolding climate crisis, and are experiencing fear, disorientation
- are feeling isolated in that awareness, having few or no-one among your friends and family that you feel you can share openly with
- may have found yourself stuck in any of the stages of grief, and need to share your howls of rage, or tears of loss, or just sit in numbness
- have none of those feelings, but want to show up, share, and listen to others.
This is a place for being, a still moment where you can settle and share what is in you right now. And support others in their journeys through the sacred act of listening, deeply and without judgment.
Please come on time, and plan to stay for the full hour and a half. The gathering will take place on Zoom. A link will be emailed to all registered participants on registration.
We know the value of these meetings and for this reason all facilitators offer their time on a dana basis - the Buddhist practice of giving. Participants who would like to support the Deep Adaptation network and these continued efforts to build community are invited to donate here.
