Do you feel anxious about climate change, grief for species extinction, despair or anger at the inequalities of our society?
Do systemic issues of society sometimes keep you awake at night? Do you feel overwhelmed by the news?
Are you exhausted by the amount of work to be done, or are you unsure where to even begin?

Feedback from previous participants:
“The weekly Good Grief sessions made space to slow down, refocus, and delve more deeply into the climate-related discomfort unconsciously affecting all areas of my life. It also grew my community and my communication skills in a safe, welcoming environment. The course is a worthwhile commitment, especially with Liz Wade as your facilitator.” - 2020 participant
“The good grief course was invaluable, and came at a moment when I was feeling disillusioned and anxious about the future. Liz opened a beautiful space, where I felt like I could be authentic and honest and reach deep inside myself to those places that I don't like to visit. I felt safe, and genuinely heard, like each session was I door I could prise open a fraction more each time. I felt like I was getting to see the truth of my fellow participants as we all became accustomed to being so raw and vulnerable.
At times I visited grief, death and loss and at others I giggled uncontrollably. I found understanding through metaphor and narrative - taking what worked and leaving the rest. I visit these places often now, and I feel like my life will be richer in a more sustained way due to my participation in the program. Thank you Liz” - 2020 participant
