Ecological Grief Circle @ Meditation room, Concordia Multi-faith & Spirituality Centre

Come join us for a circle to share fears, anxieties, grief and other related feelings regarding climate change and socio-environmental harm. Climate change is inseparable from colonialism, white supremacy, capitalism, and other forms of oppression, so discussion of climate change’s connected social harm is also welcome to this space.

Our intentions in holding this space are: to speak from the heart, listen from the heart, and share spontaneously. When we are in a circle, what we share does not fall on any single person’s shoulders to bear- instead, it is held in the circle, witnessed, and given opportunity for release. Circles are open to everyone, a talking piece is used so that everyone gets a chance to share.
