Leadership at the End of the World: Finding Inspiration and Community Through Grief and Compassion
TRACK: The Hygge Room

You are here: you are awake to the vision of a Living Future. But being awake can be really hard! How do you stare down the onward march of climate change and stay encouraged? How do you maintain hope while also feeling grief for victims of our massive ecological disruptions? This session will cultivate your courage and resilience. It will tap your ability to find compassion and insight in the most harrowing places in your heart and in our world. We will build community. We will laugh. We’ll do a traditional meditation practice: the Cultivation of Compassion. Join us.
