Our recent Action Team Communication:
Announcing new 12-week Ongo Session
Starting January 2020
Day/time: TBD on Zoom
Feeling anxious about the World's climate future? This can lead to frustration, depression or irritability impacting our interpersonal relationships or our climate advocacy. Emotional and spiritual fitness are important to maintaining our energy and enthusiasm. Many of us have found Ongo to be a great way to provide the self-care that enables us to be strong, more fulfilled and happier climate advocates.
Ongo's goal is to enable authentic, heart to heart connection helping us to bridge differences with others. It is a valuable tool for CCL volunteers, offering an opportunity to experience personal development in a safe, supportive environment. Topics like self-care, mindfulness, forgiveness, empathy and compassion are explored, in an effort to learn how to further understand both ourselves and others. All CCLers welcome.
Thanks Solemi and all of you who participated in our Oct. 15 webinar Leadership During Crisis and Cultural Transformation. In the webinar, Solemi Hernandez lead us thru 12 Principles for Spiritual Leadership, and we linked that to our climate advocacy work and CCL's core values.

Sometimes our CCL work can be stressful because we are so passionate about our mission and struggle to encourage others to share our enthusiasm. But, if we just stop for a moment, take a long, deep breath and refocus, we can regain that drive to shine and keep on going. That’s the premise of Ongo.
