Earth Radicals Hangout says
“The most radical thing any of us can do at this time is to be fully present to what is happening in the world.” – Joanna Macy

Climate change, environmental destruction, extreme inequity, racial discrimination: we live in turbulent times, and it can be a real challenge to remain alive and open to the struggles (and joys!) in our world without feeling completely crazy or shutting down out of hopelessness. The big secret, though, is that almost everyone with a lick of sense knows that feeling – we just think that it’s our burden to bear alone.

Not anymore, y’all! Come hang out with us. For this first meetup, there’s no set agenda – just a space for people to have the courage to unpack their concerns and experiences with them, to look each other in the eye and say “holy horsefeathers, me too!”

We’ll discuss what’s worked – and what hasn’t – in our effort to remain engaged with the world around us without losing our minds. We’ll talk about a few books and approaches that could be helpful. We will laugh, because what’s the point if we can’t? But mostly we’ll just be honest, open, and together – which is a pretty revolutionary and subversive thing nowadays.

(Can't get there at 7? Come when you can! This is gonna be a pretty loosey-goosey kinda thing.)
