In these challenging times, as we collectively face painful realities and despair, it also serves us well to cultivate hope and take action. This session addresses self-care, explores our mortality along with the global ecological crisis, and asks how to create more meaning through taking care of the life around us.
Join us for a:
Short reading from the new book, “Embers of Hope: Embracing Life in an Age of Ecological Destruction and Climate Chaos.”
Small group discussion.
Q&A with the author.
This event is part of Fox Haven’s Healing Circles. Healing circles are based on the holistic philosophy that “the whole is a system that is greater than the sum of its parts”. The intention of a healing circle is to invite you to step away from what’s going on around you, step away from social isolation and into a safe space with a community of open hearts. All are welcome to participate.
The basic rules are:
We treat each other with kindness and respect. With that said we want to make sure that everyone has their microphones on mute and
Only unmute when you are speaking.
We listen with compassion and curiosity.
We honor each other’s unique ways of healing and don’t presume to advise or fix or try to save each other
We hold all stories shared in the Circle confidential.
We trust each of us has guidance we need within us and we rely on the power of silence to access it.

About LandBack Tax
Beginning in 2022, Fox Haven will pay $2 from every ticket sale to the Piscataway Land Trust as a LandBack tax for the land Fox Haven inhabits. Land taxes to indigenous nations function similarly to paying rent or a home mortgage. Payments such as a mortgage provide access to living space, whereas LandBack taxes recognize our access to stolen Indigenous land.
The Piscataway Land Trust is a long-term Indigenous-led effort led by the 501(c)(3) Cedarville Band of Piscataway Indians Inc. to restore and rematriate ancestral land and sovereignty in the Chesapeake region to Piscataway and other Chesapeake Indigenous people.

In the event that inclement weather is predicted ahead of an event, you will receive 48 hours’ notice of cancellation or rescheduling. Otherwise, the event is assumed to be rain or shine. An alternative location may be provided if shelter is needed. We do not offer refunds for postponed events or no-shows. However, if Fox Haven cancels, a full refund will be issued.
