Climate apathy, climate overwhelm Saturday 4th and Sunday 5th December

In this time of climate crisis we may well find ourselves not knowing how to respond, either emotionally or practically. The enormity of the situation is so great that we can either seem to be feeling nothing at all, or else can become overwhelmed by a range of feelings such as fear, helplessness, anger, guilt and grief. Or we may become so involved in taking action that we have no time to attend to ourselves and may end up feeling burnt out and depleted.

If any of these apply to you, this workshop will be a safe, non-judging space where you can meet and welcome all the feelings, or non-feelings, that may arise. Through doing so you may begin to come alive again to a sense of love and care and connection for the world, and this in turn may help you to discover your own way forward. In the workshop I will be drawing mainly on Inner Relationship Focusing and also taking inspiration from Joanna Macy’s work.

This workshop is suitable for anyone who has some experience of Focusing and being a Focusing companion, i.e. Level 1 of a Focusing Skills course or the equivalent. If you would like to book but are not sure if you have enough experience, you are welcome to contact me.

The workshop will be held online on Saturday 4th and Sunday 5th December, from 10.00-1.00 each day. There will be time for Focusing partnerships and whole-group sharing and discussion.

The cost is 75 for the two mornings, 50 concessionary rate.
