What is Climate Compassion?


Through community events, workshops and trainings, Climate Compassion inspires widening circles of compassionate action, rippling from self-compassion to taking action for the benefit of our human family and the web of life, for current and future generations. We aim to be a node of mutual flourishing, that shifts culture toward a life-sustaining society.

We offer:

  • Community events, such as salons featuring inspiring speakers who embody generative solutions to our ecological and social crises, with plenty of time for connection and interaction

  • Workshops and Trainings weaving together practical action plans and the psycho-social-spiritual skills necessary to sustain our effective engagement

  • One-on-One Sessions that combine embodied leadership, healing modalities, and transformative practices

See our home page for upcoming events, and stay tuned for ongoing trainings and workshops.
