Embracing Life in an Age of Ecological Destruction w/ Bonita Ford [ONLINE]
February 23 @ 7:00 pm - 8:30 pmFree
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.
