Extinction Resilience: Gathering for Strength

  • Judson Church 55 Washington Square South New York, NY, 10012 United States (map)

Doors open at 6:30pm; Session begins promptly at 7pm.

How do we transform our despair into hope and our anger into compassion? How do we co-create a new world while witnessing systemic collapse? Can we write a new narrative by asking ourselves: what is truly life-giving and sustaining?

The climate crisis is a collective trauma on a scale never before seen. To experience grief, confusion, rage, and despair is not only normal, it is also a sign of our capacity to love. Unfortunately, in a culture that so often denies our humanity, we are often left to feel our pain in isolation. Or, we are urged to jump into relentless action, often bypassing the opportunity to tap into the joys and pleasures of being alive — the very things that will help us stay nourished, grounded, and connected for the long haul.

Whether you’re already a part of XR or just getting introduced to the movement, Extinction Resilience is a monthly space to be present with the reality of our times, create community, and discover how to cultivate radical hope in the face of uncertainty.
