Upcoming CCL Resilience Building Workshops And Resources
Many of us are experiencing a full range of emotions following the heavy news and urgency of this week's sixth IPCC report, Congressional activity and daily extreme weather and climate-induced events. At CCL, we want to be one of the many resources available to you to provide assistance and to help grow and deepen resilience for our volunteers. With this in mind, we have a few upcoming events and resources to share with you:
- Resilience Building Circle: Monday, Aug. 30th, 8:00 ET / 5:00 pm PT. Please register here. Come share your thoughts, feelings, perspectives and concerns about whatever is top of mind and deep in your heart around the climate crisis. That may be the latest IPCC report, heat waves, wildfires, or other challenges you are personally experiencing. All are welcome to join us for a combination of large and small group time with special focus given to listening and presence. Hosted by CCL's Resilience Building Action Team and facilitated by Tamara Staton, Education and Resilience Coordinator.
- Active Hope for Climate Advocates: Sunday, Aug. 22nd or Sept. 19th at 4:00 pm PT / 1:00 pm PT. Our "Active Hope" program is a 2-hour workshop based on the work of Joanna Macy. We use experiential exercises and small group sharing to strengthen your personal connections with CCL colleagues and to generate fresh insights and energy to support your climate activism. Learn more at cclusa.org/activehope and enroll for upcoming sessions on August 22nd (waiting list) and September 19th. Get notified of future dates at cclusa.org/activehopereg.
- ONGO: Beginning September 13th, Mondays at 8:00 pm / 5:00 pm. The "ONGO" (short for Ongoing) tool is a 12-week program to empower volunteers to practice self-care and create compassionate conversations. Up to 20 participants engage in structured exercises and expansive dialogues for individuals, with a buddy, and in a weekly group meeting. Learn more and sign up here.
If you would like to help organize or learn about facilitating either of these, contact Steve Levin for Active Hope and Caterina Lindman for Ongo. The Resilience Building Action Team will resume monthly Action Team Meetings on the 4th Tuesday of the month starting September 28th. Here’s that event listing on CCL Community.
These events, along with an extensive list of resources and additional training opportunities, can be found on CCL's Resilience Hub. We look forward to seeing you and any in your personal network that may be interested and email email@example.com with any questions.
