Come join our reflective, wintry atmosphere this Climate Café on Mighty Networks to talk about Our Simple & Kind Acts for Earth.

We will be uplifting each other about our positive acts for the Earth and explaining our philosophies behind them. Whether it be living in simplicity, active choices, or creating new habits; we welcome all to share and learn from each other.

This is your best opportunity to connect with a community that gets you, with folks who are experiencing many of the emotions that climate change has brought out in your heart and mind.

There is nothing for you to commit to except to gather your favorite beverage, a journal, find a comfortable spot with your Zoom window open, and just be you.

Each session will include facilitators from The Resilient Activist as well as a Climate-Aware Therapist to guide the conversations in ways that are supportive and nurturing.

 

Meet your friends. Speak your #ClimateTruth.

The idea is simple

Imperfect Activism

Hosted on our Mighty Networks Online Community via Zoom

At March’s Climate Café on Mighty Networks, there will be time to reflect on our own imperfect activism.

Imperfect activism has many different areas of discussion, including (but not limited to):

  • giving up
  • forgiving yourself and moving forward
  • mistakes of the past
  • lack of knowledge
  • pushing ourselves past our limit
  • self-criticism and guilt
  • not appreciating small victories
  • picking the lesser of two evils

The sun rises and it sets. The water keeps moving. We too must follow the paths of the current of our life. Let’s talk about those sticks in the mud, the rocks, and the falls that we have had to endure while finding our way past.

This discussion will be guided by a climate-aware therapist, Ashley Radtke, who is on a mission to support change-makers as they pursue ambitious work while honoring their playful, messy, explorative self. Ashley uses the lens she cultivated as a system-focused therapist to find patterns and context that can boost change or maintain stability in the work of environmental stewardship.

This joyous meeting will be for the opening of our voices to each other through storytelling, poetry, and song (voice or instruments).

This meeting will last 2 hours instead of the normal hour and a half. Everyone will have time to share at least 1-2 original pieces (or more!), depending on time. You also are welcome to simply come and listen.

We are excited to express our creativity this month and sing joyously for the coming of spring!

Guidelines for Climate Café Open Mic

  • Take risks. There is no judgment here.
  • We will have time for reflection and conversation after each performance.
  • We will popcorn from act to act and once everyone has performed, we will have another chance for more to be shared.
  • We are respectful of others’ unique voices.
  • We listen and are interested in each other’s views, and we don’t try to impose our own.
  • Silence is fine. Performance is not required.
  • Tears and all emotions have a place.
  • Performances are not recorded.

This is your best opportunity to connect with a community that gets you, with folks who are experiencing many of the emotions that climate change has brought out in your heart and mind.

There is nothing for you to commit to except to gather your prepared piece, find a comfortable spot with your Zoom window open, and just be you. We can’t wait to share and connect with you.
