Eco-Grief Workshop: Facing the Challenges & Despair of the Climate Crisis

August 9 - August 11


Eco-grief workshop at Silver Wattle Quaker Centre, 9 August – 11 August

Experiencing the range of responses to the climate crisis can be challenging and isolating. Are you looking for a space where you can explore these reactions with others?

This 2-day workshop will use grief as a lens through which to navigate our response to the climate crisis and explore its function as a vehicle for healing and hope in the midst of the challenges and despair we may feel.

Drawing on a contemplative ecological framework, the workshop will explore the movements of grief and how these may assist and support us in the challenges that we face in relation to the natural world. Facilitated by Mandy Cox, Grief Counsellor, Spiritual Director, Supervisor.

When: Friday evening 9th August to Sunday afternoon 11th August Where: Silver Wattle Quaker Centre, 1063 Lake Road Bungendore

Cost: From $350 including accommodation and meals from dinner Friday night to lunch on Sunday
