This event is for anyone who has anxiety about climate change and its impact on our planet, and would like to transform those feelings into positive action.
Please join us for an engaging and inspiring conversation with Stephen Jenkins, whose work addresses this anxiety with warmth, humour, and compassion, as well as tools to move forward for positive change.
Stephen Jenkinson, MTS, MSW, is a spiritual activist, author, farmer and founder and principle instructor of The Orphan Wisdom School. He holds Masters Degrees from Harvard University and the University of Toronto. He is the subject of the NFB documentary film ‘Griefwalker’. His principal work has been to forge an authentic language of grief for this grief illiterate time.
Many people all over the world are unconsciously mourning the devastating impact we are having on the planet and our climate. Without acknowledging our grief and allowing ourselves to speak about and mourn what is happening we will not be able to move forward. The transformative nature of grief is a powerful agent for change.
Facilitated by Margery Moore of Hollyhock and the film Wakan Tanka, accompanied by Amy Huva, with Climate Access, this dialogue aims to mobilize those who have a desire to be useful to those now inheriting an endangered world.
