Grief circles

As the full impact of the climate crisis unfolds, there is a growing recognition of climate psychology. How will we process the grief and loss associated with the collapse of nature and the breakdown of the climate? How can we mourn the depleted future that has been left to our children, and come to terms with our own complicity in destruction?

These are complex questions, but CCA has been developing ‘grief circles’ as a way of helping people to acknowledge the deep emotions around these issues. Melanie Nazareth has prepared two different versions of the grief circle, and we invite you to download them and use them in your community. They can be profound and life-giving moments.
