While the global pandemic and politics largely dominated the headlines last year, the mounting climate crisis and our role in it has recently reemerged in our daily news reports. In times of crisis-especially now with multiple crises all at once-it is easy to feel overwhelmed with despair. As the climate changes, many therapists have been helping patients with a relatively new diagnosis that has a variety of names: eco-anxiety, climate anxiety, climate despair, eco-despair, and eco-grief.

No matter what you call it, many of us are feeling the same things and asking ourselves, and each other the same question. With ecosystems failing all over the planet, is there any reason for hope?

Join author and CIIS professor Craig Chalquist and psychotherapist and ecotherapist Linda Buzzell for an inspiring conversation about tackling our climate anxiety by cultivating eco-resilience. Craig shares ideas to help us personally and collectively adapt to a changing earth with a focus on enchantivism, which refers to stories that may begin in chaos but then take us into inspiration.

What can imagination and wonder do for us in dark times? Can folklore and myth remind us of and strengthen our connection to nature, place, and planet? Craig provides containers like storytelling, utilizing fantasy, fiction, vision, and dreams in tandem with tangible methods to offer tools to combat eco-anxiety.

With these magical and practical tools in mind, we can begin to heal from our eco-anxiety, and move down the path to eco-resilience.
