“Climate change (global warming) is just a symptom, like a fever, and not the disease itself. The underlying problem is the ecological emergency, the destruction of our ecosystems, the destruction of our home.” Dr Linda Theyer GTEC reader
Considering ourselves ‘citizen therapists,’ part of a ‘global citizen’s movement,’ we are called to jump outside of the box of ‘business as usual’ practices, to invite awareness and engagement. In these changing, challenging times, how do we find ourselves responding? What frees us from immobilizing feelings or denial, what sparks generative action? We, our clients, and our communities can contribute to the kinds of transformation needed through our circles. As we awaken from ‘the disconnect,’ the trance of the eco-cidal, what does it mean to be eco-sourced instead? Let’s explore counter-stories, liberative narratives, visions of possibility and engagement.
Tuned into our natural surroundings, as we breathe into the work of our times, we find each of us has stirrings and unique gifts to offer. What calls us? What do narrative and collective narrative practices offer?How can we open spaces for inspired resistance, effective protest, regenerative action? Let’s connect with wider circles of environmental and social justice responders. Marginalized and liberative narratives uplifted can shape a world that’s life-sustaining for all and all species. Earth’s calling invites gratitude, grief, curiosity, creative courage, connectedness, fierce love! Here we are!
