Climate Change and Collective trauma – this lab explores the collective trauma emerging from our disconnection from nature and the living planet – and from the resulting crisis of Climate Change. We will be seeking to feel and ‘presence’ how trauma shapes our worldviews and institutions in ways that separate us from nature and keep us from being able to respond adequately. How is extinction in the outer world reflected within us? We will explore inter-being and how reconnection and restoration of our relationships to the living world is vital. What are the ingredients that might make it possible for us to heal together? We will explore these questions through the specific perspectives and experiences that participants bring.
