Climate Cure: Healing Ourselves To Heal The Planet
Carolyn and Jack Adam Weber, author of the forthcoming book Climate Cure: Healing Ourselves to Heal The Planet discuss the ways in which working consciously with our feelings about climate catastrophe can move us beyond a pre-occupation with mere survival into a place of care for ourselves, for the Earth, and for each other.

Democracies throughout human history have generally been short-lived. While liberal democracy in the West has never been perfect nor all-inclusive, it has served to keep repressive, authoritarian forces at bay. Within the last decade, however, we have seen the rise of autocratic forces threaten the freedoms we take for granted. The implications are far-reaching because the authoritarian mindset must disregard nature, the environment, economic well-being, creativity, beauty, and the human spirit in order to prevail. How do we care for ourselves, each other, and the Earth community in the face of a repressive external authority that seeks to erase our humanity and our sacred inner authority?
This course will explore the bulwark of authoritarian rule but most importantly, the rich, vibrant, resilient potency of our inner authority—our “true north” in tempestuous times. We will notice and appreciate how some people in previous eras have dealt with similar threats to their deeper humanity. Small group, as well as large group work, and concise homework assignments will be utilized to nurture and empower us. We will also explore specific practices that support our self-regulation in the face of increasing stress. Click Here
