Ecological Grief: 

a pathway to resilience, self-care and earth care


How can we face the climate emergency and this unfolding planetary moment with all its intensity and uncertainty? How can we stay awake to the suffering and the beauty with clear eyes and an open heart?

Together, we can strengthen resilience as we deepen our capacity to act for a just and sustainable world. Ecological Grief retreats are experiential and interactive, offering a roadmap to metabolize pain into courage, compassion and creativity—qualities that allow us to respond with wisdom and integrity.

Based on Joanna Macy’s “Work that Reconnects”, this retreat offers practices and group activities that help people discover and experience their innate connections with each other and the self-healing powers of the web of life, transforming despair and overwhelm into grounded and inspired action.

For upcoming scheduled Ecological Grief events, please see the calendar.


"It was both healing and liberating to be able to express how I feel about ecological loss with others."
