Thank you for this! I'm just wrapping up a masters in counseling and am in the process of writing a capstone project on how the hospice movement can inform group therapy for climate emotions. This is so helpful (as is your entire newsletter)! Grateful!

Thanks for this resource. I’ve been offering work of this sort in the climate and social justice activist community for 15 plus years. So grateful for the collective wisdom emerging! I’ll be sharing this in my circles.

At Britt's invitation, I'm sharing here about our 'Surviving the Future: Conversations for Our Time' offerings through Vermont's Sterling College.

In the past we've only been able to offer an annual live 8-week experience (next starting Jan 31st, 2022), but now also have a year-round, self-directed offering - A Path Through Tumultuous Times - that serves as an always-available gateway into our active community of folk grappling with the impossible questions of our times, together.

All details at:


(and offered on a trust-based 'pay as feels right for you' basis, including free access)

Check out "In Deep Adaptation’s Focus on Societal Collapse, a Hopeful Call to Action," Kiley Bense, 12-24-2021, https://insideclimatenews.org/news/24122021/deep-adaptation-climate-change-jem-bendell/. And "The Shape of a Story ... or so I've been told," Issy Manley, https://drawingthetimes.com/story/the-shape-of-a-story/ (which can load slowly, requiring some patience).

I once asked philosophy professor Robert Soloman, in a discussion of his book "About Love: Reinventing Romance for Our Times" (1988), if there was a way out of story and he laughed. He started as a medical student captured by Nietzsche's idea of "eternal return" and fundamental question: "If given the opportunity to live your life over and over again ad infinitum, forced to go through all of the pain and the grief of existence, would you be overcome with despair? Or would you fall to your knees in gratitude?"

I met narrative therapist originator Michael White first in 1998 and then again in 2008, when I asked him if he had any stories about the way out of story. He too answered with a laugh. He was freed from an ordinary life by acquiring a bicycle as a youngster and becoming an avid biker within a wider world. He was warned by his cardiologist not to fly but took a flight anyway and was dead a month after I spoke with him in 2008.

Now retired, I've been an active member of Save RGV from LNG since it was formed in May 2014 on news that LNG export operations were targeting our local Port of Brownsville TX and am primarily focused, but not exclusively focused, on killing NextDecade and its Rio Grande LNG and NEXT Carbon Solutions projects, which would also take down Enbridge's Rio Bravo Pipeline project. I'm striking at the projects from existential and narrative angles, getting into their stories and strategies to slice and dice them.

With Omnicon now in the air with COVID-19, who know knows what challenge I'll face next. But I do hope to get back to the mythopoetic and other imponderables one of these days.

Adding to your list: https://sustainingalllife.org/

Sustaining All Life (SAL) is a global organization that allies with and supports organizations and individuals working to end the climate crisis by providing tools that assist people to

• address emotional barriers to effective climate organizing.

• uncover and heal from damage and separation caused by oppression.

SAL has attended the United Nations Conferences of the Parties (COPs) and other climate conferences since 2015, and will be at COP26 in Glasgow.

SAL bases our work in the theory and practice of Re-evaluation Counseling (also known as Co-Counseling or RC).

This is a fantastic gathering of resources. This offering on Transformative Climate Advocacy might also be supportive - working to support climate change agents in their own development, presence, resilience, and transformative impact https://www.pacificintegral.com/transformative-climate-advocacy

Here's another resource: The open-source "Night Kitchen" short story (10 minute read, best as a shared read-aloud) explores our relationships to the climate crisis with six workshop guide options, depending on the needs and interests of your group. I have used it in women's groups, library reading groups, and drama workshops. It is the story of old friends gathered at the house of the Goddess the night of the end of the world and offers many jumping off points for reflection. "Night Kitchen" is freely available for PDF download at https://www.webermack.com/night-kitchen-the-workshop-version. Thank you, Britt Wray, for your generous suggestion to share another climate crisis resource.

These are all very helpful resources. Thank you. The one emotion that isn't really acknowledged or addressed here, though, is anger.

It has been so wonderful to have this list of deeply thoughtful resources. I am a psychologist increasing getting involved in collective action, helping make other therapists knowledgeable about climate-aware therapy, and climate storytelling. Having this to share is heaven! I'm excited to learn about Elizabeth Bechard's work with parents processing climate anxiety. Also, Radical Support Collective that I learned about through you Britt was such an encouragement to me in my own work and process. Jess and Anastasia are both so deeply present and resonant, I was so clear and energized after meeting with them both. Thank you!
