The Edge Retreat

“The Edge” – a 4-day retreat (free to all) designed to help you connect with your resilience, courage and well-being. To stand tall in the face of our predicament, whilst honouring your grief and other emotions, and to become more aware of your unique pathway in all this.

Are you somebody who has woken up to the climate and ecological crisis?

This is a 4-day retreat for people who wish to inquire, in good company, into the question “So, what now?”

A great Podcast Series

This is an excellent podcast series hosted by Dr. Jennifer Atkinson, a professor of environmental humanities at the University of Washington, where she leads seminars that help students cope with the despair, anger and anxiety that arise from environmental loss and mass extinction.
We find it a helpful series to share with others who are not familiar with the concepts of deep adaptation. I have shared this podcast with those who argue that facing into difficult emotions creates numbing despair instead of “active hope”, and it has stirred up some good conversations rather than putting people into a defensive stance.

PostDoom

A fabulous resource for all who are awake to the predicaments we face.  Michael Dowd offers nourishment in the form of resources, and 75+ recorded conversations with leading activists, scientists, spiritual leaders and thinkers.  As many of us have discovered, ‘Post-Doom’ is a very different place than ‘doom’!  It’s about what opens up when we remember who we are, accept the inevitable, honour our grief, and prioritize what is  pro-future and soul-nourishing.  It’s a fierce and fearless reverence for life and relative equanimity even in the midst of abrupt climate change, a global pandemic, and collapse of both the health of the biosphere and business as usual.  It’s about living meaningfully,  compassionately, and courageously no matter what.
