that can prevent runaway climate change

Please fill out this inquiry form if you are interested in an upcoming cohort


Are you deeply disturbed by ecological disruption and injustice?

Do you want to be part of bringing in the dawn of a new way of life?

You are invited to apply to join a small cohort of courageous beings who are ready to respond to our current crisis and bring in the dawn of a new culture. You will become part of a compassionate and supportive learning cohort that will help you metabolize the grief of our current situation into a positive offering for current and future generations.

Our ecological life support systems are in danger, and our mainstream culture maintains an extractive economy that amplifies inequities and injustice. The latest IPCC report gives only 12 years to halt our current emissions to prevent runaway climate change. Even if we accomplished that goal, there remains a real likelihood of ecological collapse and the need for a profound transformation of civilization.

We do not know the future success of our actions, but we can do everything in our power

to protect our current web of life and future generations.

This workshop series is designed to support you in cultivating wisdom, compassion, courage and skill to respond to these times:

  1. Create an inspiring, practical action plan for 2020 unique to you based on your circumstances, place, community, needs and offerings.

  2. Cultivate increased psychological well-being and resilience to trauma

  3. Engage in practices from wisdom traditions that restore sacred harmony

  4. Learn practical skills to sustain yourself and community through disruptive changes
