We are excited to host a variety of learning events this November focused on building sustainable, regenerative ways of life in response to the climate emergency. Events this month include:
I] Coping with Climate Change Workshop
Climate Change can be difficult to deal with: personally, emotionally, and existentially. This workshop engages on all these levels in community. We explore four themes: Gratitude, Honouring our pain for the World, Seeing with New Eyes, & Going Forth. The next event will be Thursday, November 10th, 7pm at Queen St Commons. Register on eventbrite.
II] Necessity: Oil, Water, & Climate Resistance Documentary
On Monday, November 14th, 7pm we will be showing the film Necessity: Oil, Water, & Climate Resistance at KPL - Central Branch. Check out the trailer for the film. All are welcome.
III] High Price of Materialism reading group
Author Tim Kasser shows that people whose values centre on the accumulation of wealth or material possessions face a greater risk of unhappiness, including anxiety, depression, low self-esteem, and problems with intimacy - regardless of age, income, or culture. Here's a little more about the book.
Our second meeting will be Tuesday, November 29th, 7pm reading Chapters 4 & 5 of the book. Space is still available. If you are interested in joining us please contact: firstname.lastname@example.org.
