Nourishing Our Own Resilience in the Face of Climate Anxiety

Do you sometimes feel whipsawed between gratitude for good events, such as the Held vs Montana ruling that the youth won, and anniversary of the Inflation Reduction Act funding for the climate, and anger, sorrow or anxiety while breathing wild-fire smoke or mourning the people of Lahainia?

How are we to keep our faith in the future and keep our current well-being strong during these times of great shifts?

This isn’t the first time humanity has faced monumental uncertainty and peril. Perhaps what we’ve learned is: you can’t face this alone. It’s too big. FACS board member, Kris Rosenthal is offering some guided conversations this fall, once a month for an hour.

She will draw on a few resources. One is Active Hope: (revised) How to Face the Mess We’re in with Resilience and Creative Power, by Joanna Macy and Christopher Johnstone. And, Not Too Late: Changing the Climate Story from Despair to Possibility, by Rebecca Solnit.

The first guided conversation will be Tuesday September 26th, 7:30 pm. To get the link, please contact

The other three are on Sundays:

Oct 15th, 4pm

Nov 5th, 4pm

Dec 3rd, 4pm
